This is probably the last of the newsletter for 2015. This edition is short for a number of reasons; not the least is that I am very busy on other fronts. This is my second round as Newsletter editor and it’s been fun. With the board’s blessing, I hope to continue in 2016.
It’s been quite a year – one for the ages and possibly once in a lifetime. Yellow Tail everywhere, dorado and wahoo caught in Santa Monica Bay, and even a 600 pound black marlin. And to top it off, bottom fishing for rockfish has been steady all summer.
It’s possible that the yellow Tail will stay with us until next year; let’s hope so. Bottom fishing will take a pause in January and February and it will be a good time to get the reels serviced, especially if they were used for Yellow Tail and Tuna, and to put fresh line on them.
The yearly breakfast is coming up (see below) and the Banquet will be upon us before we know it. The theme this year will be I WANT TO BE A ROCK STAR. Be ready to participate.
I want to thank all those who have provided material for the newsletters, especially King Tut (aka Bob Tuttle), DeeDee always rock steady, and Michael Lombardi, our official photographer.
And all of us thank members of the Board for their tireless work on our behalf during 2015. Thank you!
The New Year brings us a new charter master in the person of Adrian Cruz. We wish him well in his new post and we thank Gene Housworth for his dedication to the Club as charter master these past few years.
