Oops Line December 2023

Dear Mission Bay Members,
 Happy Holidays to you and your families.

 Fishing is mainly deep water rock codding. Remember US waters will close for rock codding beginning January 1st. 

The Rock Cod Tournament that was canceled due to weather will be rescheduled for February/March 2024. Watch future oops line for updates regarding the new tournament date. 

There was no fish weighed in for November Fish of the Month .  Hopefully, to get more anglers involved in fish of the month the board has decided to sweeten the pot. Starting in 2024, a Daiwa fishing reel will be given to the winner of fish of the month.  Also in 2024, marlin releases will be eligible for fish of the month, using the same rules as the tournament format. Let’s get out on the water and cash in on your fish. Please also send us a picture of your fish to share with the club.

Remember Early Bird membership sign up is upon us. Sign up before January 15th and get your name entered in the drawing for a reel.

The 2024 Awards Banquet will again be held at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse on Saturday, January 27, 2024 @ 5:00 pm. Details and sign-up are in the attached flyer. Remember there is limited seating. So don’t miss out on this memorable evening.

We continue to be asked about MBMC’s 50th Anniversary shirts. Yes, we still have short and long sleeve shirts in most sizes. Please contact Jim Kelley to purchase shirts. 

As the end of the year approaches, I want to thank all the board members for all their hard work and compassion for the club. A special thank you to all our generous supporters, not only our members but Dana Tackle Shop, Fisherman’s Landing Tackle Shop and Everingham Brothers Bait Company.
We are always looking for members’ input in ways to improve the club. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the board members. We would love your feedback. A special Thank you to Larry Oberti for all his countless hours of running the club’s website. It is not an easy job.

Remember this is your club.  Let’s make 2024 a great year for the club.

Happy Holidays,
Scott Paul
