Preparing for 2012 | Fish Pittsburgh

The last few months have been very long for me. With some of the warmest weather I can remember in Pennsylvania I have not been able to fish. If you recall I had been dealing with a shoulder injury for most of the summer. Well in Septmeber after the KBBC Classic I decided to go ahead and have the surgery knowing that it would be a 4-6 month rehab. I am happy to say that I am about 2 1/2 months into the rehab and things are coming along nicely. I still can’t fish or hunt, but everyday life is slowly getting back to normal. Which means I have started getting ready for the 2012 fishing season.

December is a great month to stock up on fishing tackle. Most stores run Christmas sales, on-line sales with free shipping, or simply end of the year sales. Some places that I recommend checking are tackle warehouse, lang big fish, and cabelas. Often these sales don’t last very long so I tend to check the websites 1 or 2 times per week.

I have found that if you contact companies they will often give you bulk pricing on weights, hooks, and even lures. It never hurts to ask and when you are like myself and going to buy 200 bullet weights to get me through the year, you may as well buy in bulk and save money if you can.

Well good luck to you still heading out on the water. I know I would be heading out this weekend to try to get some last minute fish. Remember you might not get a bunch of fish this time of year, but you will usually get good fish to bite.

    Fishing Enthusiast,

    In 2010, a horrific car accident occurred that took the lives of three Seneca Valley students. One of them was senior baseball player and star pitcher, Sam Bucci. In Sam’s honor, Christopher Dorogy, a dedicated friend and teammate held the first Sam Bucci Memorial Fishing Derby to raise money for a scholarship in Sam’s name.

    The next year, this project was handed down to Justin Stanger another baseball teammate. To keep with the tradition, Justin has handed this project down to me, Zachary DeTillio. I am also, a pitcher with the Seneca Valley Baseball team. With honor, I will continue on the legacy.

    I am hosting the 3rd annual Sam Bucci Memorial Fishing Derby on March 24, 2012 at the Conway Sportsmen’s Club located at 100 Magill Rd., Zelienople, PA 16063. March 24, 2012 from 10am to 4 pm. Fee is: Adults: $20 snd students: $10. All of which is going to a very worthy cause. This scholarship is to stand for who Sam Bucci was as a person and will be rewarded to the student and player who best displays his qualities both on and off the field.

    Everyone is invited! There will be prizes, chinese auction and great food! If you could please let your friends and family know.

    Thank you so much in advance for your kind help. Anything you can do to get the word out, would be greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Zachary DeTillio
