Club Surf Fishing Tournament
with Picnic on the Beach (Potluck)
Torrey Pines State Beach
April 29th

Our Annual Surf Fishing Tournament is here upon us. Saturday April 29th at Torrey Pines State Beach. Last year's event was a great time and the winning angler was Rex. Let's see if he can keep his title again this year. We had a great time, all the anglers were spread up and down the beach and every person had a different type of technique, rod set up, and bait. Norm had these huge 12' surf rods and was fighting sharks and rays all morning long. He just couldn't get the right fish to bite but gave it all his effort. Gary was up to his chest in the surf casting his rod while getting pounded. He just had to get his bait out there a little bit further each time and paid the price with a valiant effort. There were a cast of others who just held up camp and talked fishing stories while the tournament took place. If you are looking for a great family fun event, be there. You'll be glad you went. Get there early for free parking on the street or use the pay parking lot off Carmel Valley Road at McGonigle Rd. We set up on the north side of the beach near the inlet. Bring the kids, sunscreen, chairs and blankets, Please bring some food to share like macaroni salad, potato salad, chips, drinks etc. The club will provide some type of food and I believe Curt was talking about cooking up some of his famous chili. Mary always has something wonderful she's baked up special to share.

Tournament cost $20 per angler no side pot

Tournament begins at 9:00 am
