    Welcome to the San Diego Rod and Reel Club!

    The Lou Duchene Memorial Big Fish Seminar
    at the Bali Hai
    Thursday, August 4th

    This year the guest speaker is Dave Hansen. Dave is an animated and excellent speaker. He is an expert on Southern California sport fishing, so his presentation will be fully relevant to the Big Fish Tournament. Dave operates his own Guide Service and is a Captain for hire. You can hear him on Let’s Talk Hook Up every Sunday morning between 8-8:15am. As Chris Rock would say…remember to shut the f__k up while the guest is speaking! If you are not familiar with Chris Rock’s wise admonitions then check this out:

    Pepe and his crew will be serving up his awesome fish tacos for $1.00 each and the Bali Hai will be providing side dishes as well. So come hungry!!

    There will be an excellent raffle with special prizes gathered for this event.

    There have been some changes this year to the tournament.

    • This year included in the entry fee is a tournament t-shirt to every angler (previously only the Captain of the boat got the free t-shirt.

    • Also, banquet tickets will be sold separately. Banquet tickets may be had at a discounted price of $20.00 per person if you purchase tickets at the seminar. After the seminar, the banquet ticket price will be $30.00 per person. Kids 12 and younger will be $15.00.

    • The club will be raffling off an awesome prize as well, just for purchasing your banquet tickets early.

    Who We Are

    The San Diego Rod and Reel Club was established in 1982, a not for profit saltwater fishing club. The purpose of our club is to be a leader in the conservation of fish stock while promoting the future of fishing, family, fun and friendship. We promote and enhance the sportsmanship of recreational fishing, safe boating, and angling competition among club members. We bring fisherman, families, and friends together share similar experiences, and ideas.

    We offer our members up to date information for anglers, social activities, club tournaments and monthly meetings that are informative and a lot of fun. Being part of a fishing club gives you access to anglers that have a wealth of knowledge in the area of sport fishing. We also have top experts speak at our meetings, so we guarantee that you will increase your fishing prowess by joining our club. Our fishing tournaments are for all ages that are held throughout the year for cash and prizes.

    We meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm in the beautiful setting of the Bali Hai Restaurant overlooking San Diego Bay, in Point Loma.
