    The San Diego Anglers Foundation will be hosting the Crystal Pier kids fishing derby, formerly run by Capt Ron Baker, this Sat, July 20 at Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach for kids 15 and under. Fishing from 8 to noon, with signups starting about 7:30 ish. Hot dogs and small raffle to follow. Everything is free!

    The last few years we have had tremendous turn out and hope to have it again. If you have a small fisherman and want to come down and give it a try, just show up. Parking can sometimes be a problem later in the morning, so the earlier you get there, the better off you will be.

    There will be some loaner rods available but we sometimes run out, so bring your own if you can. We normally catch mackerel, perch, sargo, black croaker, short halibut, lobster and one year we had a yellow grab a mackerel on a handy dandy at the end of the pier and smoke the little rod he was using. All fish are weighed and released and the results and prizes handed at about noon.

    Hope to see everyone down there!

    This was cool. Thanks. Been meaning to ask who was putting these events on. The sargo were biting like crazy that morning. Haven't seen anything like it since.
