Captain Joe Cacciola, of new Oceanside Sea Center landing, will be the featured speaker at the February 9 general meeting of the Senior Anglers of Escondido. “Capt. Joe,” as recreational anglers know him, will talk about his new company, which recently took over the old Helgren’s Sportfishing docks at Oceanside Harbor.
Joining forces at the Sea Center are Capt. Ernie Prieto of the Chubasco II, and scientists from the Pfleger Institute of Environmental Research. The team has combined forces to bring to the North County an exciting visitor-serving facility focused on ocean fishing, education, and conservation.
Being the weekend of love, Valentines weekend, Capt. Joe will share an alternative way of remembering love ones that have passed on, with a memorial at sea.
Capt. Joe believes that the oceans are the life force of the planet and are all inner-connected. “If one scatters ashes at sea, they can instantly re-connect with their loved one by visiting any sea shore in the world,” said Cacciola. Capt. Joe’s boat, Sea Star, performs at-sea tributes for loved ones, and is the only memorial charter that coordinates with the military so that deceased vets receive full military honors.
The Senior Angler’s general meeting will held at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, February 9, at the Escondido’s Park Avenue Senior Center, 210 Park Ave. Meeting are open to all anglers age 50 and above. Visit senioranglersofescondido.net.
