Listen to - Fish Tales: Your President's perspective.

 

Fish Tales from Your President’s Perspective.

Oh what a beautiful fall day today has been. I am writing this from Vail Lake KOA. It's kind of funny as you can’t get to the lake from inside the campground (legally that is) and there are no fishermen staying here this weekend. That is because all 500+ spots are filled with Halloweeners. Almost every site is decorated in some way and they have many events and play areas for the kids. Saturday night there will be thousands of kids, young and old, trick or treating. It is amazing and can be a madhouse. Not what you would call a relaxing evening but quite the show. Yes, our site is decorated as a graveyard - our motto is “we can’t wait for you to join us”.

Where we live is truly a blessing, we have so many fishing and camping opportunities within a couple hours or less. Beautiful beaches, majestic mountains, awesome meadows, the ocean, deserts and lakes all waiting for us to visit them. November is a fishtastic month to be a Senior Angler.

I am still enjoying the catch from September, and October that I was lucky enough to be part of. My smoker has been busy with trout, various ocean bass, rockfish, and Bonita. Tried a few new recipes, a couple of which are keepers and baked some catfish to perfection. Now I need to fill my freezer again.

The club will be at Santee Lakes for opening day of trout season there. It’s so close you should come and join us for a few hours or days.

Planning and prep is in full swing for our annual Holiday Party on December 7. It looks like another fantastic evening of food, entertainment, and fun. Make your reservations at the meeting. I hope to see you all there.

If you have any outings planned let us know how they go. I will be in the desert Veterans day weekend and hope to hit a couple of my favorite fishing spots. Golf course ponds and the All American Canal. Maybe I’ll stop by my old stomping grounds of Weiss Lake and Red Hill Landing on the Salton sea.

For Thanksgiving, after one family gathering here in Escondido we will be packing up the turkey and heading to Borrego Springs for the other family get together. As you can see November can be a busy camping and fishing month.

In our planning for next year, I would love to hear your thoughts about camping/fishing outings both freshwater and saltwater. Since the ocean bite is expected to continue, we will need to be setting up our charters as soon as possible. Let Gerry Graf know what your preferences are and you can let any board member know where you want to go camping.

Remember our meeting will be on the third Friday this month November 18, due to the Veterans Day holiday on the 11th. Have a wonderful November and see you all at the meeting and Santee Lakes

Paul Lorson
President
