December 2023 Newsletter Welcome to the end of the year! What an interesting
one it was!! Lots of tuna spread around, mixed in
with a bunch of “Neckties” (small Dorado’s).
Yellowtail was hit and miss, the Bottom Fish opener
was a hot hit, and an assortment of PB’s (Personal
Bests) spread through the club. I was just thinking
about Yellowtail as I write this … I actually didn’t
catch any this year!! I can’t remember the last time I
didn’t catch at least one Yellowtail in a calendar year!
Wednesday, December 6th, Portuguese Hall,
 2818 Avenida de Portugal, San Diego, CA 92106.
Social at 5:00, Dinner at 6:00, and the meeting
commences as soon as serving is complete.
We need a headcount, so we know how much food
to order, and how many stockings to hang for the
kids. Please call or email me if you plan on
attending, as well as if a significant other and/or any
children/grandchildren are joining you, (we need to
know their names too). 619-571-8787 or
Dinner is on us, and there will be another great
Raffle Table, plus Silent Auction items! And don’t
forget the Optional Gift Exchange, up to $20 value.
Maybe gift something from the clothing table?!!
The December meeting is your last chance to win
your Brand-New Reel!! Sign up at the December
meeting and you will get a raffle ticket to Win! We
will be drawing the Lucky Winner that night, so be
sure to RSVP and show up. If (for some reason) you
cannot make it to our December event, I can take your
membership application over the phone and write
your name on a ticket. You do NOT need to be
present to win, but it is more fun that way!! Thanks
to Doug Kern of Fisherman’s Landing for hooking us
up with a great deal on the reel, he even filled it with
some complimentary Spectra for us.
Please join us on the Board of Directors. Without a
board, we have no club! We had a few people sign
up at the last meeting, but we can use more help. So,
please do not hesitate to call or email me with your
interest in getting involved to help keep this club
running. It’s a Team Effort and we’re all there to help
each other. That’s why we were able to run so
smoothly this year!
A big Thank You to Steve Carson of Penn Reels! He
did a fantastic job speaking to our group. He certainly
had everyone’s attention and there was a lot of note
taking! His tips and tricks were very helpful, and now
I don’t feel bad for how many rods I take with me on
each trip … he takes more than I do!! LOL
I would also like to thank Joey from Squidco for
hooking us up with some great deals for our raffle
We also had a lot of guests last month, some signing
up as new members! As I have mentioned before, I
have been a member since 1997 and have found this
club to be nothing short of a benefit! The things I’ve
learned, the fun at our events, and the friendships I
have made are all Priceless!
