San V. Prefishing

Wow, it’s been a while since the last post. Sorry to my faithful reader. I’ve been busy with the club tournament schedule and a few other circuits I’ve decided to try out. I’ve also got a few other things going on. I had to refund a few orders because of time constraints recently too. Anyway, we should get on to the fishing report.

I was fishing San Vicente with a buddy, as I have two tournaments there this month. We got there early, and on the water without a hitch.

AIM Sunday Series

Rain is not pleasant to fish in. It’s even more unpleasant when you’re trying to sight fish, and the ripples on the water prevent you from seeing the fish.

Sunday was my very first non-club fishing tournament. The AIM Sunday Series is a small local event that is fished by some of the top anglers in the county. And seeing how it was my first non-club event, I wasn’t too concerned with how I did, just that I was able to have fun fishing with the lady.

Pre Fishing AIM Sunday Series #2

Saturday I headed out to Lower Otay to pre-fish for the AIM Sunday Series, which was the next day. We got to the lake a little later then I had wanted, but it turned out ok, as there was a pretty good sized line to wait in. While there in line I noticed a few guys from the San Diego Bassmasters club I’m in, so we did some chatting on ideas for the day. It’s great to be in a club that is full of members so willing to share information. I’ve heard of clubs that are very tight with the information that they have, to me this kind of defeats the purpose of being in the club.

So launch and head straight to my planned first spot.

Club Tournament Pre fishing

I hit up San Vicente on Saturday February 2nd to pre fish a little club tournament. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to, as I was having some motor problems on my boat, but luckily a buddy that is also in the club mentioned he had an open seat.

So we set out in cold water (for San Diego, 53 degrees is cold) and went to find out what we could. We pretty much fished points the few hours we were there. It was a tough bite, but my buddy managed 3 in the boat, and broke off one. He caught his on Carolina rigs, Jigs, and Drop shot trick worms, with all of them being deep.

3 hours, 1 keeper, and 1 ticket

Well…Sunday was a semi success. I got a call Saturday night from my cousin telling me he wanted to hit up a local spot tomorrow since he just got his license and hasn’t had a change to use it. I told him to call me in the morning, but since I knew the weather forecast, I didn’t think he would. It was supposed to dump 4 to 6 inches of rain the next day, and I knew he wasn’t hardcore enough to go out in that kind of weather. Turns out I was right.

Otay AIM S.S. #2 – Prefish Day 1

My Lady and I have decided to fish the AIM Sunday series tournament (a small local San Diego tournament series). The next event will be our first, and will be her first ever event. She’s actually only fished off my boat with me once before, but it was fun, so the event, I hope, will be fun as well. The next event is at the Lower Otay Reservoir.

Last Saturday, in getting ready for the event I took my boat out to Otay to make some underwater structures on my new Humminbird 997c2 SI Combo NVB unit. The water was still cold, down to lower to mid 50’s. And the water was much higher then it was last year.
