CBSC 60th Fishing Derby News – Phase II

Cholla Bay Sportmen’s Club 60th Fishing Derby News

Phase III of CBSC 60th Anniversary Fishing Derby coming up Memorial Day Weekend! Fish Fry on May 24th starting at 3 p.m. (serving starts at 4 p.m.) Info and questions:

Wind and ocean are a volatile mix especially if you’re a fisher person. Steady wind day after day gets really old when a fisher person is itching to get on the water and test their skills against Mother Nature’s wily ocean dwellers. That was the scenario for Phase II of the 60th CBSC Fishing Derby May 7-10. After two initial days of no boats launched, the wind finally settled down enough to allow boat fishing on Saturday and Sunday. Hats off to the shore fisher persons who kept the weigh station staff busy with their surf casting and kayak division catches. Those who took advantage of a calmer northern Gulf of California still paid their rock and roll ocean dues but managed to catch some fine fish anyway. Fish hard was the catch phrase as it was hard work to fish. Among the best catches were Pepe Rodriguez’s 73 lb. grouper, Mitch Callahan’s 29 lb. pinto and Lynn Altfillisch’s 20 lb. yellow tail. The target fish for Phase II was Cochi and that rod and reel prize was collected by Rolando Lisaraga with a 4.4 pounder. We can all hope for less wind and calmer seas along with good fishing for Phase III on Memorial Day Weekend May 21st – 23rd with the Fish Fry and Awards Ceremony May 24th. Keep on fishing everyone and your efforts will be rewarded – Lucky Chucky
