Huge thanks to Ali and BD Outdoors for once again providing swag/raffle prizes and an awesome jackpot prize for my annual charter trip! This year’s trip was on the Vendetta 2 with Captain Ray Summer at the helm and Nick Lambert and Shane as our awesome deckhands extraordinaire! The crew couldn’t have been any better! Our original plans were to go offshore in search of tuna but we opted for plan B to head to the Coronados since offshore’s bite with recent reports were dismal. We had a full day at the islands moving to different stops throughout the day. I don’t have the final fish count, but we were able to get @ 29 yellows, numerous bass, several barracuda, 1 lingcod and 1 scorpion that I saw.

We had a great group of BD alumni members on this trip along with some new members. Lots of smiles and laughter all around! Food was great with breakfast sandwiches, nachos and cheeseburgers provided by the boat and I made my traditional NY-style cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries.

The jackpot prize (donated by Ali/BD) was a Phenix rod for the biggest fish. Nick placed the top fish on the balancing scales and there were 3 of us with the top weighing fish, fairly close in weight. I won with the heaviest fish, then Ed Mayadag’s was 2nd and Frank Santiagos was a close 3rd!

We drew names for raffles prizes and had goodie bags which included BD swag, t-shirts, caps, koozies and gaiters and jigs. Plus, we got some raffle prizes from Frank and Hook-up baits!

I promised Scott (Gil Marlin) that I would make sure we got some tuna on this trip but since we didn't end up going offshore, I made sure he got some tuna afterall.

We went home with some nice bags of fish, raffle prizes, great memories and ready for the next trip!

It was great connecting again with our alumni BD group and adding new faces to our group. If you ever get the chance to fish on the Vendetta 2 with Ray and his crew, jump on it! You won’t be disappointed! We are all ready to book the next trip!

    Was great seeing old friends again and making new ones. As usual Ray found the fish and Nick & Shane did an outstanding job of making sure everyone was well taken care of. Huge thank you to Maggie for organizing such a fun trip. 👍

    Maggie’s homemade cheesecake was enjoyed by everyone. Thank you also to all that donated to the goodie bags, raffle, and grand prize.

    Speaking of grand prize, the BD charter crown 👑 has passed from the previous king to the very first Queen…All Hail Queen Snaggie! 👸🏻
