Guest Speaker Ray Summer

For guest speaker Ray Summer, Owner and Operator of Vendetta and Voodoo Sportfishing, it has always been about fishing. He started his love of fishing at 6 years old, when his dad took him camping and fishing. He loved freshwater fishing and thought it much more challenging than ocean fishing. At about 16 years old he got hooked on saltwater fishing. From 1992 until 2006, he worked for “Local Legend” Bobby Williams aboard the San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing. After trying a life outside of the sportfishing industry for a few years, Ray purchased the Vendetta, a very fishy sportboat that comfortably carries 12 anglers. In 2017, Ray purchased the Voodoo, a high-end 6 pack for charter and in 2021 he added to his “fleet” by purchasing the Vendetta 2.

Ray has a great reputation of being able to put anglers on the fish, and it’s not unusual for him to come home with limits. When Ray is at the helm, there’s never a dull moment, with a great humor and lots of energy, he makes his trips fun. Not to mention, he also cooks a delicious pulled pork during the morning fishing to serve at lunch. The San Diego Anglers have 2 charters scheduled on the Vendetta for the 2022 season.

Rock Cod Tournament Results

The fishing gods were kind on March 19th. The anticipated changing weather held off long enough for the 21 anglers registered in this year’s rock cod tourney to get underway in very fishable conditions. Boats spread out in all directions, as skippers worked secret spots and edges from the Mexican Border to Del Mar and beyond. Good action was reported most everywhere, with quality Reds responding to live bait, slabs and jigs alike. See More on the Tournament Results Page.

21st Annual Fishin in the Pines

21st Annual Fishin in the Pines

2021 Lake Cuyamaca “Fishing in the Pines” Kids Derby

Hey there Gals & Guys Serving/Cooking/Prepping Team Members,

Prep Day: (09:30am Friday the 24st) started out perfecto at Al’s house with all our fillet Masters: Dwayne Patenaude, Charlie Fouquette, Mike Kezelle, Cliff Johnson, John Jones, Rudy Garcia, Bill Brown, Butch Paddock, Al Staz. and myself (MIA with Barb hiding in the house) at Al Stasukevich’s Pondarosa. Once again, our refined process of filleting/marinading & packing is nothing short of top shelf according to Al. We got those beautiful Yellowtail, Yellowfin & Bluefin fillets cut, marinated, and bagged up for Saturday. I would say about 3-4hrs. later in the afternoon the sky darkened all around the county and the lightning and rain started, acting as if it was going to foul Butch’s and his staff’s Big Day.  THANKS AGAIN ALL YOU FILLET TEAM MEMBERS.

Game Day: WOW, Saturday the 25th morning 0630 not much in the way of threatening weather :0)  Yaaay! Off to Sonya’s (“Ramona Café”) to meet up with some of our assume gang, and some of our other heavy hitters hit their regular Saturday morning hang out at Hwy. 67 Café. After a good solid energy boost from the two Cafes, it’s on the road again and off to Julian to make the final turn heading to the Lake. A lot of us arrived approaching the lake about 9:45 seeing the first glance of the Anglers that we would be cooking and serving to/for. There was a fair number of Anglers and vehicles coming into view so we knew it was going to be another great event. The cooking and serving stations were starting to come alive and set-up was well underway. Butch’s staff made it pretty darn easy again to grab a parking place, and our tools and we were off to the races of getting things prepared to cook for and serve to the mass amount of Little Fisher persons and their Families, on that Great Mountainous Paradise. SO, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT! The morning progressed and before we knew it, the time had come to get busy with the task at hand of feeding some of 5-600 people.


It was a little lighter than years past, Dang that Covid for messing up all that it has messed up :0(          IT WILL BE BIGGER NEXT YEAR!!!

We really missed those who couldn’t make it this year and look forward to your help in the future. Lots of Kids, Parents, Grandparents & lots of people ate and drank because of you guys!!
