my best friends
The winner of the tournament, John Slosser, came down from San Diego with his brother Pat. Pat lives at La Bufadora and John also has a house there. We camped out at Fidels the night before and both John and Pat said they are coming back next year. They said that on Monday night before the fun started on Tuesday. The experience of fishing and showing a person a good time that Carl and Sue have really shows through on their mini Bisbee tournament. I have been to a few tournaments here but what Carl and Sue put on really does put the others to a bit of shame. My Mexican family and friends really appreciate what the two of you accomplish and the amount of time and hard work you put into making your tournament a real party. Thanks again and looking forward to next year.

Wow! Thank you sooo much, dang, (Dan). It's so nice to hear all the positive input. Guess we'll have to do it again next year! As soon as we are recovered, we'll start the planning!

Looks like a great time. Was not there. Roughly what time of the year is this held and where abouts in san quintin is it held at. I imagine it is past the turn off to Jardines and the Old Mill. But to me looks like Baja Bonitas won I AM ALL IN.

Congrats Carl and Susan!! Sorry I couldn't make it but will try again next year. If you get a few more tourneys under your belt, I might have to have you come up and help me with the Bay Bass Tourney here in SD.

Hope to see you sometime after Sept 4.

Dwayne, wish you were here. With your donations it made it just that much better! Thank you so much for all the rods, reels, sand spikes, etc. etc. that you gave to us. Everyone loved everything!!!

We hold it sometime in mid August. We are doing the sign ups, food and awards on the beach in front of Fidels' Pabellon, about 10 miles south of the Old Mill turn off, but it gives you great beach access to many miles of beach that you can fish. Hope you make it for the next one.
