Senior Anglers of Escondido
From the President’s Pole
Well as we enter March, the Blue Fin bite has stopped. They are still being spotted. However, it has been a long time to even have tuna at the Cortez banks at this time. The Yellowtail are still jumping into sacks at Colonet as the Vagabond had over 100 on February 19th. Things could be worse, we could live in Boston!!
The local lakes are continuing to have lots of trout caught. Our Lake Mo-rena trip began on February 22nd for five days. It started with a good rain that tested RV roofs and mine failed. (I know where my tax return is going) The rain cleared and the fishing began. It was a tough week even after a stocking with ten pound plus sized trout.
The social side was wonderful in the large community room provided by the lake. The ladies sewed and cards were played by the guys in the af-ternoon. The evenings were highlighted by wonderful meals and games enjoyed by all. The Taylors and Gehrkes did an outstanding job as our Wagon Masters. We all had an entertaining and fun week due to all their efforts. My personal thanks to each of them!
