Senior Anglers of Escondido
From the President’s Pole
We have a new year upon on us, opening the door to enjoying friends at our meetings and activities and chasing the elusive big one. There are many activities already scheduled and more to come. We need folks to lead the Fish Fry, Italian Festa and the Annual Picnic. Please participate in them and volunteer to help out as our club’s success is totally dependent on our members.
Our adventure to Viejas was a fun day and provided shoppers some great gifts. We also had some winners including one whose name be-gins with a “C”. This is also a fund raiser for our club. Please try to join us next time if you could not join us this time.
The December Awards Banquet was wonderful and the food was excellent. Carol and Ron Parker provided us all with great memories of the past year with their wonderful photo presentation. Thanks again to Betty and Larry Allen, Anitra and Dave Gehrke and Karen and Bob Taylor along with everyone else that made this event so memorable.
December also brought sadness to our group as Al Green passed away. He and Simone were very active in our club. They were given the Founders Award for all their efforts and support.
Several club members fished the Lake Wohlford opening. The day was predicted to have heavy rains starting around 8AM. Mother Nature was right on schedule and in an hour the senior shore was a muddy mess. Within two hours the only anglers left were us seniors. However, we did catch fish, way to go everyone!!
Fishing continues to be good with both our local lakes producing the infamous Tailwalkers and saltwater trips still finding yellowtail. The surf bite continues to produce some nice sized perch up to 2lbs. as my son and I discovered in the Carpentaria area.
Remember to get a new fishing license before venturing out on January 1st or afterwards,
Hope to see everyone at our meeting.
