I am happy to report that Anglers Express is providing tackle discounts to all current MRA members. If you haven't visited the shop, take a look. 117 Old Padonia Road, Suite C Cockyesville, MD. The selection is excellent. Eric and Chris will take good care of you. Note: There are a couple of teams who have not yet submitted their 2016 forms. Get your membership forms in, so you can start taking advantage of the 2016 MRA discount program.
MRA has room for a couple more teams in the 2016 season. If you are interested in testing your angling skills, and competing with skilled reservoir anglers in a friendly environment, we would like to hear from you. You still have time to register for the 2016 tournament season. If you have ever wondered how you would do in these events, maybe it's time to give it a try.

Our annual meeting for 2016 is scheduled for Sunday, February 28th. The meeting will be held at Casa Mia's restaurant 17417 York Road, Parkton MD 21120. We will start at 1:00 PM, so come hungry, Casa Mia's has a great menu. We hope to see all MRA members and anyone interested in joining MRA. We look forward to a great 2016 tournament season!
Thirty two anglers in eighteen boats participated in our annual Icebreaker Tournament. The cold 29 degree foggy start was quickly followed by a beautiful warm sunny day. Unfortunately, for most of the competitors, the big bass were not in a mood to come out and play. The team of Waino Anderson and Ron Wolfe broke through with a 5.57 Lb lunker largemouth to win the tournament. Ron caught the winning fish after masterfully employing a 20-minute dead sticking approach that required a level of patience that most mere mortals simply don't possess. You'll have to get the rest of that story from Ron or Waino. It's a good laugh.
Thanks to Anglers Express for generously providing coffee and donuts prior to the start of the tournament, and for their generous awards of tackle discounts to the top three teams in the tournament. I suggest that all MRA members should check out their Timonium store.
Congratulations to Ron and Waino for a great finish on a challenging day.
The annual Icebreaker Tourney will be held at Liberty Reservoir this Sunday 12/6/15. Launch by 6:45. Tourney hours: 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM. $25 per angler Entry fee. Largest bass (largemouth or smallmouth) wins all!
In addition, Anglers Express will provide discount coupons to the teams with the 1st , 2nd and 3rd largest bass. Our sponsor Anglers Express has opened their new store at 117 Old Padonia Road Suite C Cockeysville, MD. I visited the store recently, and it's a great place to shop with great product selection, very competitive prices, and excellent service.
Hope to see you all at Liberty on Sunday.
