|Halibut HOPPER Tournament||10/11|
Our speaker for the October meeting will be Bob Woodard Jr. Bob is a former club member and an accomplished local fisherman. He is regularly sought out by the experts for fish reports and he has an affinity for catching halibut. He will be giving a wrap-up of this year?s amazing fishing.
I ran across an article from the San Diego Union about Bob catching Bonito using flies. He entered a 1-pound, 2-ounce Bonito he caught near the San Diego Bay Bait Barge into the IFGA and held the world record for fly fishing Bonito. His record was beaten by a guy from the L.A. area in 1992 with a 5-pound, 1.6-ounce Bonito. 15 years later Bob caught a 10 pound, 15 ounce Bonito on a fly off of Point Loma and gained his record back. Bob?s daughter also holds a number of IGFA records. Bob is a resource for local fishing methods so bring your questions for a great opportunity to hone your fishing skills.
