April 2nd Club Meeting            The San Diego Anglers

Are Proud to Present

Doors open at 6:10pm
Meeting at 7:00pm

Since 1999 Terrafin has been providing computer enhanced sea surface temperature (SST) and Chlorophyll charts for anglers and divers. They now cover the entire Continental U.S. coastline, Hawaii, Alaska, the Caribbean, the Pacific coast of Central America, Venezuela and Brazil. They most likely have your region covered, if you don't see it, ask! Terrafin prepares its enhanced charts using only 1km high resolution data from the NOAA Polar Orbiting satellites. They process that data using state of the art Satellite Imaging software and select the best shots for each region, then review and manually correct for navigation and atmospheric problems in the data. It's time-consuming, but a must for creating quality charts! They then produce enlarged images of specific local areas, using the best temperature range for that area to help emphasize the temperature breaks with overlays and lat/lon grid for the region, finally adding local reference points and bottom contours to the chart. The final result is an easy to use, detailed chart that will prove to be an invaluable on the water tool. As with all sea temperature services, we don't get images through the clouds, as a result some regions are updated more frequently than others. There are also times when the NOAA Satellites do not capture a particular region, or a ground station can encounter problems receiving the data. They do their best to minimize these problems by using multiple redundant data sources. But sometimes this can result in no data for a few days or longer. Either way, they TRY, every day, and will process whatever portion of a region is clear.

San Diego Anglers Monthly Club Tournaments

Club Tournament News

 SUSAN JOHNSON MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT

Saturday, February 19, 2014 - It was a beautiful morning with mild temperatures and a full moon.  We met everyone at South Shores Launch Ramp in Mission Bay.  A total of 19 anglers fished the tournament.  Sadly no Juniors were able to fish the tournament.  My grandsons were busy and Harrison Kellerman had a basketball game.  William Proctor aged out of the Junior division but still fished on the Copout.  Anglers on 4 kayaks fished the tournament.  Richard and Zella Burk provided pulled pork sandwiches, cole slaw, and lemon pie during the weigh-in.  John Otto took photographs at the weigh-in.

Susan Johnson, whose name honors this tournament, was sadly taken from us three years ago.  She was president of the San Diego Anglers in 2002 and joined the club with her husband Steve in 1998.  Susan was always a positive influence in the club and a good friend of everyone she met.  Susan was on the board of directors in 2000 and it was her idea to have a Bay Bass Tournament on Mission Bay.  The first Mission Bay Tournament was in November of 2000.  The tournament has been one of the most popular and highly attended since.

The Winners

(Based on 3 Bass Bag)

Adults:  First place with a 5.5 lb. 3 fish bag (all Spotted Bass) was Mike York.  He won $200.00.  Mike also won the jackpot with a 2.6 lb. Spotted Bass.  This added $140.00 to his winnings.  Mike’s name will be engraved on the perennial plaque.  Second place went to Tony Souza with a 3.4 lb. 2 fish bag (both Spotted Bass).  Tony fished on a Kayak to take these fish.  Third place went to Steve Johnson with a 2.7 lb. two fish bag (Spotted Bass)  He won $100.00.  Fourth place with a 1.4 lb. one fish bag (Spottys again) was Charles Schuler.  He took home $75.00.  Fifth place with a 1.3 lb. Sand Bass was Nancy Ortiz.  She was awarded $50.00.
