November President’s Message

Happy Holidays Everyone! 

I apologize for the delay in the monthly newsletter but better late than never. I will start off with a fishing report from what I know. The Bluefin are still an option with the boats that make it to the Cortez Bank and I see the San Diego Sportboat caught a 217lb on a kite rig yesterday on the local banks. There have been some Yellowtail caught the past couple weeks at La Jolla and the Deep Drop guys are catching some Swordfish in the local canyons. The Marlin fishing has slowed down but last month there were a few caught right out front. The High Count weighed in the biggest of the year with a 190.5lb marlin with Steve Milligan as the angler. Congratulations!

Fish of the Month for October went to Dan Banks aboard the Tuna Tank with a 261lb Bluefin Tuna caught at the Cortez Bank. I have been in the club since the 90’s and I can’t remember when a 190lb fish lost FOM; especially in October. Congratulations  Dan on an awesome fish!

We are sad to say Goodbye to our Treasurer Trish Carlin. Trish did a great job and is leaving to spend more time with her new grandson. Thank you Trish! We are in NEED of some more board members for next year. Please consider giving a couple hours a month max to making our club better as we all look forward to things returning to normal. If interested, please let one of the board members or myself know….we could use the help trying to make 2021 a banner year for all members. We have been meeting via Zoom until Covid restrictions allow us to meet in person.

Membership for next year will be going out soon with an early bird prize being raffled off to those who sign up before the deadline. 2020 has been a tough year for all members. Despite the many setbacks, the year has provided some excellent fishing for those that were able to spend some time on the water. We all expect 2021 to be more of the same, if not better. 

Covid Restrictions have affected the club like it has everything else and we are doing our best as a board to make the club as safe, lawful and fun as possible. We will discuss how to plan our annual awards banquet and membership meeting and let you know what we come up with as soon as possible.

I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving Holiday,
