11-19 Tournament

posted Nov 16, 2019, 4:53 PM by Tony Dominguez

    Well, well, well what can I say. It was a tough one nonetheless, from the cold front pushing through, the what it felt like 200 knot winds, the dirty water, and losing a phone to the bottom of the lake. The better part of the day included having two prospective new members come out and have fun with us. Welcome Mike Santos and Chuck White. Well it was slow, and I mean real slow, but we all know who's game that is. Time and time again he tells us what he did to catch the fish, and I can put money that there isn't an person in the club that doesn't sit there and go "What is Rex Thompson doing?", even though we already know. So you can guess how this turns out. Congrats to Rex for not only first place but big bass also. He had a total weight of 12.47 and big bass of 4.58. On the Co-Angler side was none other than his partner Nick with a total weight of 7.53. Now, isn't this something, the Angler and Co-Angler winning first in the first tournament of the season. 
   
    The club as a whole weighed in a combined weight of 46.99 lbs. There were 26 fish weighed in and released. 


    A friendly reminder to all members the Annual Classic Championship will be December 14th at Little L, our monthly meeting will be December 19th as well as our End of the Year party, followed by the monthly tournament December 21st at Little L.

Until next time.

The Morning Of.

posted Nov 16, 2019, 12:15 AM by Tony Dominguez   [ updated Nov 16, 2019, 4:54 PM ]

That good ole annoying sound of the alarm goes off at 230a, but then you realize it’s tournament day. You do your morning routine, full of excitement, you hitch up the boat pack up the gear you prepared the night before and head out. You meet up with the rest of the gang at the usual meeting spot to get last minute supplies and for the carpool ride to the fishing spot. Whether that spot is 20 min or 2 hours away it’s the longest drive of your life. The anticipation of what’s waiting for you out there, what lure are you going to give a whirl first, did you have your bowel movement before you left your house, or did you forget something. Those are some of the many thoughts that cross your mind before you ever get on the boat. You finally make it to the ramp, remove the thousand things you have holding your boat securely to the trailer, you have your non boater or some other non experienced fellow back you down the ramp. You hear that sweet splash of the water against the hull of your boat, scream at the guy in the truck and fire up that engine. There’s nothing sweeter than the sound of the engine purring at 530 in the morning. You start to putt out to the take off location, and that’s where it sinks in, that’s where you have that little feeling, that’s where you say your prayer to keep everyone safe and that’s when you realize you left the lure you wanted right on the kitchen counter. The Tournament director sends off all the boats one by one. Your number gets called, and you pin that throttle and take off like a bat out of hell. 50 plus mile an hour wind pounding against your face, fighting the wakes of the other boats, and just hoping no one is going to your spot. Finally you arrive at the destination right as the sun is peeking over the horizon, you bend down launch the trolling motor, grab your first rod. This is where it’s all worth it, this is when it’s peaceful, this is when you get that damn birds nest, this is when nothing can go your way, and this is the exact reason you wake up 3 hours earlier to fish than to go to work. 



There’s a little entertainment before the tournament report later.

2020 Season

posted Nov 6, 2019, 4:23 PM by Tony Dominguez   [ updated Nov 11, 2019, 3:42 PM ]

First I would like to extend my congratulations to Rex Thompson for Angler of the Year and Nick Sanchez for Co-Angler of the Year. I would like to also extend a thank you to all the members of the Homestead Hawg Hunters for nominating me as their VP/Tournament Director. I look forward to this season.

Just a little re-cap of last season, we fished from Aerojet Canal all the way up to Lake Kissimmee. Everyone had their share of wins and loses, good times and bad, and we've also had a bunch of great memories along the way, from Co-angler Battles to Angler battles, nonetheless the season was outstanding. We as a club weighed in 467 fish, to include one of Rex's trash fish, and only had 11 dead fish throughout the season resulting in 97.64% live releases. The total weight was 1030.82 lbs and as "Gunny" said big bass from this season went to Chris, which weighed in at 7.73lbs, out of the Falls, and no it wasn't a Peacock.

Again, looking forward to this new season, not only as VP/TD but also as an Angler, so Nick you can have this season also!

See you all at the next meeting on November 14th at the VFW in Homestead at 8pm. If you want to assist the VFW, come out a little earlier and enjoy their steak night!! This will be followed by our tournament out of Slims from 6a-2p on Saturday November 16th.

VFT Saturday

Members and volunteers,
    Attached is the itinerary for the Vet Fishing Tournament on Sat. Please be prompt with the times. Captains ensure you have ice and pick up water at ramp for your boat. Bring atleast one spinning rod for each Vet on your boat, cause most don't know how to use a baitcaster. Each boat should have 2 Vets unless we have less show up. Thanks.
