HOW Aug 18th

Looks like we are having a full event for the 18th of Aug. at Mission Bay. We are in great need of some great volunteers to help us out. If you missed the last event, you missed seeing an 86 year old VET have the time of his life and catch his first fish in 40 yrs. He alone made it all worth while. So come on out and help out a VET. p.s. HE WILL be at our next event the Good Lord willin and the crick don't rise.

Sign up on event bright or let us know. Thanks

First time

This year's Birthday gift to myself is to participate in this event in any capacity. I'd like to fish, but I'll do what's needed.



I am a first time volunteer and the site asked me as a newcomer to check in. Please let me know what's needed. I'm looking forward to this.



thanks.

Awesome. Not only a birthday gift to yourself, but a gift to all the Vets that participate. Bring your kayak with you, don't know if you will be on the water or on shore. Whatever capacity, your help and that of the other volunteers will be greatly appreciated. Anybody else that can step up and help? like I said, we have a full compliment of Vets that have signed up. Thanks. Mike

Signed up and ready to go.

Never fished MB before. Whats the ideal lure situation? I plan on throwing underspins and dropshots while I soak some bait. I'd love to get a great bite so I can hand off my rig to my assigned guest.

The fish in my avatar pic is still my favorite fish of all time (I pointed to a spot, called the shot, got hit HARD, and handed off the stick to my guest. Still the best fishing story I have in my 30+ years of bass fishing)....

Looking forward to meeting you Kenny. Is this your first HOW event?

These days I always use an underspin. Last few trips to mission the best trailer was a 4" grub in clear/hologram and a 3" BPS Speed Shad in silver/black flake. I always throw 1/2oz underspins in the bays too.

Likewise, Ed. Long time coming!

No, I've volunteered with SoCal chapter before, but prior to that I founded the AZ chapter and stood that one up. The pic I posted above was back in 2014 at one of our events at Canyon Lake in NE Phoenix. The gentleman in the picture was a Navy guy that had never fished before and didn't even know how to swim. I stayed with him the whole day and we just beat up the Largies in that lake. I will never, EVER forget the grin on that guys face when we called our shot, got the bite, and saw how big that fish was when he landed it.

Good to hear, thanks for the intel. That's pretty much my go-to as well in the bays. I underspin and dropshot the same basic patterns, but down size slightly on the D/S. One more power fishing, one more finesse. I'll also have jerk baits in tow as well if the macks start to get feisty. Super fun to catch on super sticky treble hooks.... LOL...

Quite the history with HOW, that's awesome. Hopefully they bite for us this weekend. Look for the 6'2" guy with a big beard and a Red Ride 135. That'll be me.
