With summer drawing to a close, grandkids going back to school, we are looking forward to the fall. Saltwater fishing is outstanding. Remarkably half day trips and threequarter day trips are catching yellowtail and yellowfin tuna. The autumn season is expected to be one of the best on record. Incidentally the Senior Anglers of Escondido (SAE) have a three-quarter day trip scheduled on the Chubasco II for September 13. A few spots are still available. Contact Barbara Gattuso at 858-774-6724 to reserve your spot.
During the past month Glenn Foss established a new SAE club record for the largest White Sea Bass, weighing in at 50.5 pounds. This broke the club record by more than 34 pounds. Glenn also caught the largest Class I fish for the month of August. CONGRATS to Glenn.
Bob Lage caught a halibut that weighed over 70 pounds. Good job Bob! Liz Farrar and Janet Skaja did an outstanding job with the fish fry. Good food and good times were had by all. Thanks again Liz and Janet.
