UPSAC - Pierfishing.COM Catalina Classic 2010
This is UPSAC's 9th Annual Pier Fishing Get Together at Catalina. Truly a Classic Event now, and perhaps only Ken Jones, President, and myself, Treasurer of UPSAC are the two remaining Charter members that have attended all 9 events. Dora and Warren hold the 2nd place awards with 8 consecutive years attending. We usually stay at the Hermosa Inn, renting a Cottage with kitchen for the weekend to help cook for the potluck the day of the derby.
Dinner on Friday night was again at Mi Casitas, one of the best Mexican places on Santa Catalina Island. Service, as usual, was excellent. We cooked a special Spanish rice with egg and bacon, corn dogs, chili, and penna pasta with beef/marina sauce for the Saturday lunch on the Pier, and Saturday night's dinner was at Antonio's Pizza.
Warren won big this year in the Junior Division with 5 species caught and 6 fish. Amanda came in second with 3 species and 4 fish. Dad was helping tie hooks, unsnagging and occasionally casting just months after shoulder surgery. The annual gather usually produces lots of bonito, which were hot on Friday, with James taking 2, but slow Sat/Sun. But we did take a few big mackerel. We're already looking forward to next year!
