The first dorado of the season was weighed in at Balboa Angling Club July 12 by longtime member Clarke Smith — earning him the First Dorado flag. He and other members are getting ready for the Helen Smith Offshore Tournament, scheduled Aug. 2-3. Dorado, tuna, yellowtail and albacore are the species to catch in this tournament, using up to 30-pound line class maximum. Anglers will fish from 12:01 a.m. Friday to 4 p.m. Saturday, with weigh slips due at the club by 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4. An awards party is set for 5:30 p.m. Aug. 22. A kickoff party with a potluck is planned for 5:30 p.m. July 31 at the club, and everyone is welcome. The clubhouse is next to Hill’s Boat Service at 200 “A” St. For more information, call (949) 673-6316 or visit balboaanglingclub.org.
