Note from your News Editor:

SEASON COMING TO A END

What a great year of fishing! Our club had 10 charters this year and a lot of hard work put in by our Charter Master Marc Harrison, Thanks Marc for making it happen.
There are a lot of great memories that we all have but for me being able to fish with my wife, friends, club members and family, what a blessing. To Donna, I personally want to Thank you for all the fun we had and to all the members Thank you for your friendship and to all others is was an awesome season.

By no means should you put your gear away and forget about it until next year, No, No, No! Send you reels out to get serviced, change the line on them, go through your tackle boxes and organize them, check all your rods for wear and tear and get prepared for the next 10 charters with the club.

As a reminder there are two very big fishing showing coming up in So Cal. February is the Pacific Sport Fishing Show in Orange County. Then the Granddaddy of them all The Fred Hall Show in early March. I highly recommend you all attend, there are speakers, shows, tackle, rods, reels and really anything you need for fishing at discounted prices. Donna and I always attend and make this an annual pilgrimage.
In Closing Thank you everyone who has made contributions to this wonderful club. Lets make 2020 an even better year and Keep Fishing Great!

BEING IN A CLUB
While at our Monthly Officers Meeting I was looking for a topic to write about, our Charter Master looked at me and said “the meaning of being in a Club” what a great topic!
I think most of us have been affiliated with some type of organization, group or structured clubs. To be specific and talk about what the Club means to myself and my spouse (Donna). At first I was dead-set against it, I mean joining a Fishing Club that wasn’t us! I am not that social butterfly that can easily strike up a conversation with anyone. My son pushed me to attend the first meeting with him in April of 2018, he cancelled at the last minute and so Donna filled his spot, I could not do it alone.

There we were at LuLu’s, trying to size everything up. We left the meeting with stickers, paperwork to fill out and the opportunity to join. As we talked on the way home we both said lets give it a try. I have not missed a meeting since the first meeting I attended. Donna on the other hand because of her work schedule has missed a few but together we stay focused on the club and it’s well being.

We have met some interesting and down to earth people and consider all members to be friends. Through all of this we have had the opportunity to become close friends with some members.

My belief is that Donna and I can go fishing anytime or anywhere we want but to go fishing with friends and family is a bonus. Then to meet once a month and talk about fishing, family and what is going on around the fishing world is something we look forward to each month. Donna and I would like to thank all members and friends for allowing us to be part of this amazing club.

In closing, I think about the song by The Beach Boys, “Be true to your school” this is how we feel about our club. All of us active members please lets try to recruit some new members and pass Fishing on to the younger generation.

2017 Annual Kids Fishing Trip, June 12th – Followup & Gallery

Beautiful day on the water, kids were amazing & everyone had a great time

The kids, crew & volunteer mentors from SFVSF all had an amazing day as evident by the pictures & smiles! The weather was absolutely perfect – it was a beautiful day.
Thank you to Spitfire Sportfishing​ for putting us on the fish, crew for helping all the children with their rigs & to get the fish on the boat and safely into the bags, Michael Herrera​ & the SFVSF for planning a great event, Mike F. Lombardi​ for the great pictures & the volunteer mentors from the SFVSF for their help, support & guidance. Hey! The burgers were great too — all 60 of them — thanks Galley Chef!

It was a wonderful sight to see the kids eyes light up when they caught a fish … “FISH-ON” — they learned was what to yell out when you have a fish on your line — everyone gathered around and watched as the crew help get the fish onto the boat. I could tell they were learning how to put their bait on, open the bail, close it when the sinker hit the bottom & keep their line tight until a fish hit … and then reel in like crazy — by the end of the trip, they were all little fishing pros! Many of them may end up being future SFVSF members – some would ask about our regular member trips and show interest in going in the future.

Why take 60 inner city kids fishing?
