As many of you know, each year Digger has organized an annual plug auction here on SOL to help raise some much needed cash to buy big slobby trout for NJ's kids to catch on opening day of trout season in Spring Lake. The Shark River Surf Anglers has sponsored this outstanding event for many years and it now has a life of its very own. Folks bring their kids from all over the state to get a shot at the biggest trout they have ever seen and to enjoy the day. Hundreds and hundreds of kids beaming and grinning from ear to ear is the order of the day! The kids and their parents get free hot dogs, drinks and snacks all day as well as bait, tackle if needed and hands on instruction from volunteer club members. This is a huge help to single moms and to kids whose dads don't know how to fish.


This year the club asked me to do the begging so here I am with hat in hand requesting your generosity and asking for a donation of your outstanding plug building skills that we can auction off here on the SOL auction to help with the expenses of putting on the event. Big trout are expensive and the plug auction has proven to help tremendously in past years.


Digger will be doing the actual auctioning (he's the only one of us that knows how) so............



If you would like to donate a plug to the on-line auction here at SOL, please send it to Digger at:

Many SOL members look forward to the annual on-line plug auction and to the Food Fling for a rare opportunity to get their mitts on a piece of your fine craftsmanship.


You plug builders have always shown your generosity for a good cause and I can't thank you enough for your help.


We still have a couple of plugs left over from last year (including a MAGNIFICENT Loki Sea Slider in foil herring) Those will be the first plugs that will go on the block this year.



If you didn't see your plug on the auction, you'll be seeing it there soon.


And this is where your donations go !!

No this is only for the kids trout tournament on-line auction.


Although part of the proceeds from the Food Fling Chinese auction (which Ben is collecting for) have always generously gone to the kids.
