The AZCA President and Vice President were voted upon by Club Members at the March meeting. The remaining AZCA club officers were appointed by the President and Vice President and announced at the April Spring Crappie Fest meeting. Following are the current club officers:
Matt Rokusek (OneBlade)I have been active member of the club since joining in 2011. I grew up in Nebraska fishing primarily for walleye with my family in small lakes in both Nebraska and South Dakota and moved out to Arizona in 1998. I got the fever for crappie fishing initially fishing the flotilla near Schoolhouse ramp at Roosevelt Lake with a 1983 Lund I bought off craigslist. My goals as President in the this season is to expand the visibility, benefits, and overall membership of the club to more Arizona fishermen.
Cameron Gilliam (Crappiewhisperer)Hello members I am Cameron (crappiewhisperer) and I am your new vice president of the group. Crappie fishing is a passion of mine it's all I fish for there is nothing like that thump. I own Cameron’s Custom Jigs also and am really excited about doing this with all of you and helping the AZCA grow as a group. Looking forward to what this year brings.
Tommy Rufrano (FishMan)My name is Thomas Rufrano and I am originally from NY where I began my fishing passion in the salt chasing everything from Fluke and Flounder to Tuna and Swordfish. I moved to AZ in 1995 where I quickly adapted to our freshwater species. I’m most happy with a fly rod in my hand, and while I love our Crappie my passion is just as intense for all species. I’m a true believer that “The tug is the drug” and nothing makes me happier then catching a fish, any fish, the way I want to catch it.
Kevin Morgan (Tweeder)Hey y'all, I started fishing with the AZCA in 2008 and joined as a member at SCF in 2010. Former VP of the club back in 2015. I am a lifelong AZ native born and raised fishing all over the state from Powell to Patagonia and I love me some crappie fishing although I do spend a fair bit of time targeting other species. I have pulled crappie out of 13 lakes in AZ so far and hope to expand that list this year.
