Dear Anglers,

The El Cajon Ford “Night Series” held its 2nd team tournament event at Lake El Capitan on Saturday May 18, 2013. We had a field of 57 teams that came to fish with some of San Diego’s Top Anglers. We had signups at 4:30PM with a catered BBQ from the Angles Taco Shop. The weather was nice with clear skies that made for some good fishing conditions for the teams that fished.

Over all, an excellent tournament with some very very big bass being caught throughout the field. The weigh-in’s went very smoothly with the first flight weigh-in at 3:00AM and the tournament was over by 4:00AM with the winners being paid and heading home.

The winners of the El Cajon Ford Night Series went to John Carver & Mike Walsh with 3 bass limit that weighed 21.45lbs with a 7.15lbs kicker bass. John & Mike home $ 3,700.00 for first place finish and their giant stringer. This team had missed marked there big bass and weighed in the wrong kicker fish. This is why it is important to mark are you fish prior to coming to the scales. Thanks again to Mike’s Wife (Jenifer) for the cookies that she made for all the anglers to enjoy at signup and at the weigh-in’s. We appreciate the kind gesture and love the cookies.

Second place went to Jacob Erpeiding & Morgan Holbrook with 3 bass limit that weighed 19.81lbs with the big bass of tournament of 9.04lbs. Jacob & Morgan took home a nice payday of $2,000.00 for their 2nd place finish and big fish money.

Third Place went to Rich Frank & Scott McIntosh with 3 bass limit that weighed 17.79lbs with a 8.26lbs with a kicker bass. Rich & Scott took home $700.00 for their third place finish.

We would like to thank all the teams that participated in the tournament and supporting the El Cajon Ford Series. So far, the night series have been very fun and enjoyable series for all the anglers that have fished our events. We have had outstanding tournament participation so far this season, which is largely due to the great sponsorships that have supported our event and make this series possible.

We want to thank Paul Leader and John Blake from El Cajon Ford for their support in the San Diego Team Series. Without their support, the El Cajon Ford Night Series tournament would not be possible and we can’t thank these two individuals enough for all that they do for the bass fishing community. If you looking for new or used car/truck please stop by EL Cajon Ford they will take care of you. Please keep in mind that El Cajon ford has the Quick Lane department so if you need you oil changed or new tires you can stop by and they can get this done while you wait. For more information regarding El Cajon Ford please visit their website at www.elcajonford.com.

These tournaments require a special staff and great sponsors in order to be organized and conducted properly. Without our sponsors and our dedicated staff, we could not run the best circuit in San Diego. We would like to give a special thanks to our staff members for their continued support and dedication to the events

Once again thanks to the teams that came out we had great time, fast weigh-in, and a great BBQ.

Next month tournament will be June 22, 2013 at Lake Otay. Please Note: we have move the upcoming event to lake Otay due to the water levels and lauch conditions at lake Hodges. We hope to see another great turnout as we enter our 3rd tournament of the season. We should have some serious weight so come ready to have great day on the lake.
