Martins solve weather, San Vicente in season opener

A sudden cold spell put a quick end to this January’s “false spring” and only the sharpest of teams were able to solve San Vicente in the season opener for the El Cajon Ford Day Series, Saturday.

Finishing on top of the 31 boat field was the father/son combo of Mike and Kevin Martin. Going somewhat against the grain, the pair fished shallow and posted 16.23 pounds, topped by the biggest fish of the contest, a 5.08-pound chunk.

Said Kevin, “We fished worms shallow, 5 to 8 feet. The deepest was maybe 17 feet on a dropshot.” Getting the finicky fish to bite took some effort. “The key,” added Kevin, ”was to fish really slow. Pause, shake, pause…and they would swim off with it.”
The pair earned $2000 for the first place and another $500 for their kicker.

Runners up and taking home $1000 was the team of Lyle Hunter and Aaron Morrison who scored a limit weighing 14.84 pounds, topped by a 4.42-pounder. The team’s secret, “All worm fish…super deep.”

In third place was the team of Nickolas Lerma and Jacob Melrose, fresh off their win in the Anglers Marine Appreciation Tournament, Jan. 6, when they posted 19 pounds. This time around they weighed only four bass, three taken on jigs and totaling 14.52 pounds. Said Lerma, “The weather definitely affected the fish.”

Taking the second largest bass in the contest was Earl Stacker, fishing solo. His fish weighed 5.02 pounds, and earned him 16th place overall. He won a Pure Fishing products rod and reel provided by Chris Marso.
