0 Hodges, Sutherland on the rise with Barrett and Murray spilling

Well, we have gotten our first indication of how much this recent storm has helped out the local lakes. Among the biggest risers were, as predicted, Lake Hodges and Sutherland Reservoir. Hodges rose more than 11.5 feet so far, from 94.38 to 106 feet, which is 92.2% capacity. Sutherland, which relies solely on watershed has jumped up 106.1 feet, from 96.6 on the 13th. Heres a list of the lake levels relating to their previous reading on December 13th.

0 Miramar catfish record broken

John Thomas of San Diego broke a Miramar Reservoir lake record yesterday afternoon with a 38.6 pound whopper, we’re just not certain which one. The fish was initially reported as a channel catfish, which would have broke the 31.4 pound record mark set in 2006. However, upon receiving the photos we’re not so certain this is a channel cat afterall. In either case, its a new lake record, as the Miramar blue catfish record stands at “only” 22.40 pounds. That’s small in comparison to the blues produced at other lakes like San Vicente and Otay, where 100 lb class fish have been caught.

Thomas caught the fish on a chunk of bonito while fishing from the shoreline west of the courtesy dock. The fish was released, which is good news for future lake record prospects.

Fraternal Order of Local Snake Oil Salesmen

After watching an MSNBC biography of famed pitchman Ron Popeil, I start to hear Jim Croce singing “Time in a Bottle.” I began to wonder if bottling time was possible, who would be a talented enough salesman to sell it? Yes, my mind does work this way. I mean, it sounds like it would sell itself. Right? Then again, there are a lot of items that should sell themselves that don’t. Marketing is what it is, and does what it does, because it is neccessary to spread the word; to let people know of its existence, its purpose, its value. Without it, the product simply is useless. Take that $100 lure of yours. Throw it in the wrong spot, at the wrong time, and never catch a thing. What an over-priced hunk of junk you’ve got. However, throw that $3.00 lure at the right time, right place, and it will have a hundred times the value of the fore mentioned lure.
