Season’s Greetings to you all!
I hope this message finds you healthy and happy as we enter another Covid lockdown. For the most part, the weather has been outstanding for December with warm days and nice ocean. I know the fishing is still steady for the Bluefin on the outer banks and a few spots west of the Coronados that are hard to get on. Deep dropping for swordfish has been productive for those who put in the time. Rockfish season is here along with the occasional Lingcod being caught.
Membership applications will be sent out soon with anyone who signs up before January 31, 2021 to be entered in a drawing for a nice early bird reel. A special thank you to Ken Yasuda for all he does for the club’s membership duties.
Fish of the Month winner for November is Shannon Carpenter with a 8.5lb Dorado. Shannon joined the club in September and has caught a Marlin and now won the honor of FOM for November. Oh, and I almost forgot to add she is winning December FOM with a 9.2lb Lingcod. Congratulations Shannon!!
The board is navigating through the rough seas that Covid 19 has created for all of us….both on the water and off. We are committed to keeping the club running through this until we return to a new normal. That being said we are delaying any events until that time as restrictions have become tighter than ever. We all look forward to enjoying club events such as the annual award banquet, seminars, the summer luau, the many club tournaments and bingo nights, but as a club we just can’t right now and hope you all understand. We all know that this too shall pass at which time we look forward to returning to club social events bigger than ever. In the meantime, we will continue to push ahead with the Fish of the Month contest and the discounts you receive at the various tackle shops as well as fuel. I hope you can all show your support and stay on board with us because in the end, this is your club.
Board members for next year are still needed so please consider helping out a few minutes each month to make the club better and the work of those who volunteer easier. As always, we welcome your input so please feel free to reach out to us with any ideas or suggestions.
Wishing you all a very Happy Holidays,
