The BSDC is on recess for the month of December.

For those who missed the Taste of Waddell, the Friends of Waddell did a fantastic job again pulling this fundraising event together. The weather, entertainment and especially the food that was prepared by Hudson Seafood was outstanding.


The most gratifying part of this “sold out event” was the ceremony that named the recently renovated Admin & Research Building in honor of Waddell Director, Al Stokes. The Hilton Head Island Sportfishing Club and BSDC recommended to DNR this honor be bestowed to Al Stokes for his life-long dedication and work at the WMC.


The BSDC Board elected to have the Year Round Fishing Tournament Board at Port Royal Landing Marina rebuilt by Spectrum-The Graphic Arts Center. The cost was $630. Please weight in your different species. You may also win a monthly drawing of $50.


The Club is also looking for more fresh faces (volunteers). We need new board members, officers, additional bar tenders, and always suggestions for new programs/speakers. Please contact Frank E. Gibson at (843) 522-2122 or email him at

The Annual Oyster Roast and Award Banquet for the Year Round Fishing Tournament will be held Thursday, January 11, 2018. Craig Reeves and Sea Eagle Market will provide local oysters with all the trimmings and equipment to include his famous Lowcountry Hushpuppies.
