Angler’s Club Visits Miami Dade Fire Rescue Marine Operations
Participates in All-or-Nothing Bass Fishing Tournament
The Anglers Club visited the Miami Dade Fire Rescue Marine Operations facility and took a boat ride aboard a 50' Air Vessel Fire Boat. They learned what it takes to safely run a mission and how to become certified to work for the department (which currently employs 63 CCHS alumni). The visit was made possible by Lieutenant Miguel Rauseo ’96 and Mr. Dukes. Special thanks to Robert MacKarvich '04, who gave them a tour of his Florida Fish and Wildlife Contender boat as he was patrolling the waterways.
Also, 38 club members participated in the 1st annual All-or-Nothing Bass Fishing Tournament. The winners were: Mario Hernandez (freshmen, largest peacock bass), Kenneth Romeu (freshmen, largest largemouth bass), Luis Perez (sophomore, largest peacock bass), Luis Sanchez (junior, won both categories), Matthew Patterson (senior, largest peacock bass) and Andrew Alonso (senior largest largemouth bass).
Special thanks to Ignacio Borbolla ’80 who invited the Anglers to the Florida Wildlife Conservation Foundation for their Christmas lunch where they had the opportunity to engage with many FWC officers and learn about efforts to protect patrons within its parks and on the waterways.
