Dear Anglers,

The El Cajon Ford “Night Series” held its 5th team tournament event at Lake El Capitan on Saturday August 24, 2013. We had a field of 56 teams that came to fish for some serious cash amongst a very competitive field of anglers. We had signups at 5:00PM with a catered BBQ from the Barbeque Pit with some delicious Texas Style Beef & Ham Sandwiches. The weather was nice with clear skies, half moon and most anglers were able to fish in shorts for most of the night.

Over all, an excellent tournament with some excellent largemouth bass being caught throughout the entire field. We had 162 bass weighed with a total weight 603.04lbs. The average weight per team was 10.58lbs. EL Capitan has been awesome this season producing some excellent bass, which is humbling for the San Diego Anglers that have fished this series.

The winners of the El Cajon Ford Night Series went to Jimmy Huynh and Noy Vilanysane with 3 bass limit that weighed 25.07lbs with a 13.65lbs Big Bass of the Tournament. Jimmy and Noy home $ 4,100.00 for first place finish and their giant stringer. To date, this is the largest stringer of bass caught during a night series event in the last thirteen years with a 3 bass limit. Good Job on the win guys that was great limit of bass.

Second place went to Jacob Erpeiding & Morgan Holbrook with 3 bass limit that weighed 18.42lbs with a kicker bass of 9.28lb. Jacob & Morgan took home a nice payday of $1,500.00 for their 2nd place finish.

Third Place went to Martin Keppeler & William Larson with 3 bass limit that weighed 17.27lbs with a 10.83lbs with a kicker bass. Martin & Will took home $700.00 for their third place finish. We want to congratulate Marty on the double-digit fish as this was his personal best and we happy to see him catch this bass in our tournament.

We would like to thank all the teams that participated in the tournament and supporting the El Cajon Ford Series. 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. Right now, this series is average 58 teams per event.

We would like to give a special thanks to Anglers Marine, Lakeside Bait and Tackle and East County Bait and Tackle for their collective donation of $2,100.00 for the Tournament of Champions. Without our local sponsorship, we could not provide the best night series in town. Please tell them thanks when you visit their stores for their support of El Cajon Ford Series.

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 even 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 your oil changed or a new set of tires you can stop by and they will 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 produce 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
