The Senior Anglers of Escondido will present, at their September 13 meeting, the club’s annual Summer Fishing in Review. The program will highlight members’ fish tales, with photos to prove, from around California, Baja, and the West.
SAE member and past president, Jim Stevenson, will show off his club record 35 lb. King Salmon caught on his recent trip to Sitka, Alaska. He currently holds the club’s 2019 largest fish record with an 80 lb. Blue Fin.
Other guest speakers will be Ron Casapula and Hal Reeser recapping their Shelter Cove Salmon trip in Northern California. Gerry Graf will share about a new bus service that makes Baja fishing EZ Peazy – a charter service will pick anglers up at the Otay Mesa Cross Border Xpress bridge, travel to Ensenada, spend a day fishing, and return by bus.
Members Ken Harrison, John Jessop, and Don Contenelli will show off fish and techniques from the club’s ongoing monthly Surf Fishing Tournaments, held up and down the SoCal coast.
Paul Lorson will offer a loving tribute to his father-in-law Ray Beven, labeled by many members as the best fisherman in the club. Beven passed away earlier this year.
The club’s meetings are held the second Friday of each month, open to all anglers age 50 and above, at the Park Avenue Community Center, 210 Park Ave., Escondido, 92025. Meetings start at 9:30 a.m.
Members of the club enjoy freshwater fishing challenges, summer saltwater charters, surf fishing tournaments, RV camping trips, picnics, and community service to help kids go fishing.
