June President’s Message

Hello fellow anglers,
I know it has been a while since my last message but I wanted you to know the club’s board has been meeting via conference call on a scheduled basis to best determine how to bring our regularly scheduled events back to the forefront. We have made sure to be conscientious of every member in making decisions based on the current Covid-19 guidelines and want to assure you we are anxious to get club operations back to normal as soon as possible.

With that being said, we are planning to resume our monthly tournament schedule beginning in July and are hoping to have a good turn out with what we expect will be many of us  back on the water. Fishing has lots of options right now with Bluefin, Yellowfin, Dorado and Yellowtail showing regularly. The kelps have been holding for the first time in a while and the tuna have been coming off of meter marks and kite presentations. There has also been some Barracuda, Bonita, Halibut and Yellowtail inshore off Pt Loma and Pacific Beach and on up into the La Jolla zone. Hope this gets everyone fired up and out there soon to enjoy the sport we love.

Congratulations to Jeff Zachery who won Fish of the Month for May with a 174lb Bluefin. He has started this season off well with that fish. Jeff presented our club’s Tuna Seminar last year in which he shared his secrets to Kite fishing for these Jumbo fish. If you were unable to attend and have any questions on how to put this productive method of raising large bluefin, please reach out to the board and we will be happy to share our knowledge.

Thank you all for bearing with us as we navigate these difficult times. I hope all is well with everyone and expect things will get back to normal soon.

Best of luck out there,
