Welcome to the JJC Anglers Club: Read an overview of club activities, as provided by the President and Club Advisor. A great place to start if you are new to the organization or are thinking of joining!


Calendar of Club Events and Activities: The JJCAC hosts a variety of monthly social, educational, community service and angling related research events and activities throughout the year - we have something for everyone! Check out details here.


JJCAC Picture Gallery: Check out our picture gallery of snaps taken during JJCAC events; as well as our 'Bragg 'in Board' featuring pictures of various 'monsters' captured by members and friends of the club. If you have a picture you would like to post please send as an e-mail attachment to Patrick

Reference Materials: Check out articles, featuring JJCAC activities, written for various major angling publications, including The Outdoor Notebook and Midwest Outdoors. Topics covered include: Catching more bluegills from your local pond: general tips for bobber fishing and Hot Tips for Cold Weather and many more. Links to bankfishing presentations (PowerPoint format) are also included.

The JJCAC's first Angling publication: 'Bankfishing 101' is now available for free to Club members - just drop Pat an e-mail to arrange for pick up. However, for any other interested parties (including non-members) this publication may also be downloaded for free, please click here (.pdf, 8.10 MB).


Underwater Video and Photography: Did you know the JJCAC owns an Aqua-Vu underwater viewing system? This equipment is used to record the behavior of fish underwater - some real eye opening stuff! Data recorded is presented during the Club's free educational seminars held in the Fall, Winter and Spring.

JJCAC Match Group: The JJCAC Match Group is responsible for the organization and running of competitive bank fishing events. These events are open to  both members and non-members of the JJCAC. These events feature optional prize pools for anglers competing in two separate (DNR and AMFA based rule sets) divisions.

JJCAC  Equipment and Merchandise: The Club's equipment is loaned out free of charge to participants of Club events, while essential, typically hard to find, bankfishing items (often imported from overseas) are available for purchase by interested parties.
