A Very Special Christmas Show

This coming Saturday we will broadcast a very special Christmas episode that you'll not want to miss. We took 25 US Marine drill instructors fishing from San Diego Marine Depot. These guys had a great time and this was the 12th time that we have done this trip. We usually air this program for 4th of July but this year we thought it would be nice to do it as a Christmas Special. The guys really enjoyed the day off from the base and they caught a bunch of fish too. We couldn't do this trip if it wasn't for Chris Randall the skipper and owner of the Indian. The Indian operates daily out of H & M Landing in San Diego, CA. Please make sure you watch the very special program.

Thank You All

I just wanted to thank everyone who helped us this year. Without the help of so many great friends and partners we couldn't of put on the five great kids events that we did this year. Thanks to all of you thousands of kids and their families got to enjoy a great day of fishing at their local lakes. Thousands more got to try fishing for the first time. It's been a lot of work but at the end of the day it was worth it all. With your help I hope we can add one more lake event for next year! Thanks again,

El Dorado Park, Long Beach, CA Dan Hernandez Youth Event

Last saturday my youth foundation in partnership with the City of Long Beach and the California Dept. of Fish & Game hosted hosted a huge kid's fishing event at El Dorado Park. We over 1,720 kids sign in and i'm sure an other 300 or more didn't. We moved the lines as fast as we could but it did take some of the kid's a while to get through. These number don't include all the parents, friends and family members that were there with the kids too. I'd like to thanks all my helpers who showed up and helped us pull off this huge event.
This coming Saturday, Dec. 06th will be our next and last event for 2008. It will be at Legg Lake in South El Monte. Please make plans to join us.

Canada Trip

We just got back from our fishing trip to B.C.Canada, it was a great trip. We spent the first day taking a city tour and visiting an old cannery, I truly enjoyed that and having dinner with everyone that night. The next morning we were off to the resort and our fishing. Weather kept us from fishing the first day but everything else went great from there. I was lucky and landed the most salmon of the group and the largest ones too. I also landed the largest halibut on the trip too. all of our fish were taken using metal jigs, no live bait at all. We plan to be back here next year too so make plans to join us on the trip it's always a fun time. My next travel trip will be our Oct. trip to the East Cape, you can find out all the details on our website under charters and travel trips.

East Cape

Last week we were at Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort in the East Cape. The weather was perfect, but the water temp was way to hot. The water was 85 and the fishing was off a bit. What I'd like you to know is that the resort and staff were all great! The Valdez family did everything they could to ensure a great trip fro everyone.
I'd like to thank everyone who made the trip and it was nice to see so many people from the mid-west and the East coast. I really didn't know I have soon many East coast viewers.
I special note here, our webmaster Brandon, landed his first ever marlin on this trip and we got it all on film. It was a perfect fish for TV. It fought hard and it jumped a lot. The fish was released unharmed. Both of my parents also landed 30 pound class tuna, my mom needed a little help from me.

Sea Star

last Friday we had one of our best fishing trips of the year. Everyone had limits of bass, it was a mix of both sand bass and calico's. We had some many small Barrie's around that we had to work at getting the Calico's. I got lucky and had the largest sand bass on the trip. I took it on a B-52 bucktail jig with a Gulp squid pinned on. I ended up taking three large sand bass and two nice calico's on this combo. Sign up soon and join us of for one of our charters. Dan
