MBMC President’s Message – November 2022

Greetings fellow club members,

I hope this message finds you all well as the peak of the 2022 fishing season winds down. I hope you all managed to find time to get out and enjoy what has been a spectacular season overall. And while the water temperatures trend in a cooler direction, know that there are still some opportunities to stock up the freezer for the winter.

Though the numbers have dwindled, there is still a chance to find some Bluefin Tuna around. Recent action has been reported inside San Clemente Island and around the 267 zone off Dana Point. Also of note are recent catches of Swordfish along the 9 mile bank, inside San Clemente, and off Oceanside to name a few.

Wanted to take a moment to congratulate Shannon Carpenter on her October FOM win with a 47.4 lb BFT. Well done Shannon and team Encounter.

***Reminder!!! Be sure to come out and enjoy the Mission Bay Marlin Club End Of The Year Social which will be held Saturday December 3, 2022, from 2 to 5pm at the Marina Village Dockside Deli – 1842 Quivira Way. Hope to see you all there for an afternoon of comradery and fish stories recapping the 2022 season. 

Another reminder to be sure to save the date for the annual MBMC Awards Banquet coming up on Saturday, January 28th starting at 5pm at Tom Hamm’s Lighthouse. For those of you that made the last banquet at this venue, you will recall what a great venue it is and a great way to celebrate the 2022 fishing season. RSVP deadline is Saturday, January 15th. An announcement flyer will be coming soon with more details.

Wishing you all the best,

Shane Hurt
