     I am expecting another great Bart Hall Show and hope you can come out and enjoy the show.  If you can attend, please stop by the 976bite.com booth to say hello, take advantage of the show specials on web site subscriptions and maybe pick up a t-shirt or two.  It is a chance to get show specials on our goods and services that are still available at pre-covid era prices.  I have a brand new insulated fish bag for sale as well.

     All the details about the show are at the Bart Hall Show web site at https://hallshows.com/ and you can buy your tickets on their web site as well.

     I hope to see you at the show!

     Thanks very much,

The Bart Hall Show in San Diego is at the Del Mar Fairgrounds from Thursday, February 15, 2024 through Sunday, February 18, 2024!

     The Bart Hall Show in San Diego at the Del Mar Fairgrounds is back again in 2024!  The show begins on Thursday, February 15, 2024 and runs through Sunday, February 18, 2024.  Show hours are noon until 7:00 PM on Thursday and Friday, 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM on Saturday and the show goes from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Sunday. 

        The Hall Shows have traditionally been the greatest fishing and boating shows in the San Diego area and there is every reason to think that this year’s Bart Hall Show will live up to that same high standard. I hope you can attend and share in the fun!  The Del Mar Hall shows have been known for a casual and relaxed atmosphere where exhibitors have time to talk with customers in a non rushed atmosphere.

    The Bart Hall Show has something for the whole family with plenty of things for kids to do including a free trout pond.  Kids 15 years old and younger get into the show for FREE with a paid adult ticket and can fish for free at the Mammoth Lakes Kids Free Trout Pond!  Other great kid’s activities include the Ultimate Air Dogs presented by Turner’s Outdoorsman, the Jon Petty Goldsmith and Convict Lakes Resort American Duck Races and the Okuma Bass Tank.


     I hope you can come to the Bart Hall Show in Del Mar and if you do, please stop by the 976-Bite booth to say hello and take advantage of the show specials on web site subscriptions, pocket t-shirts and men’s and ladies tank tops.  We offer a fantastic deal prior to factoring in the show specials as we have maintained our pre-covid era prices on all we offer!

      A tip to help you avoid a possible ticket line is to get your tickets ahead of time over the Internet at https://hallshows.com/ . Their web site is loaded with information about the show including directions.

     The cost is $17 for a regular adult ticket and as stated above, kids 15 years old and younger get in for free with a paid adult.  A ticket for someone with a valid military identification is $15 and it is also $15 for a senior’s ticket (62+years).  The military and senior’s tickets must be purchased in person at the ticket window showing valid identification.


    The Hall Shows are always fun and informative and this year should be no exception.  Come see the latest in fishing tackle, boats, RV’s, vacation offers and much more. 

     There are numerous free seminars during the show and there is information about seminars on the Bart Hall Shows Facebook page at www.facebook.com/barthallshow. As the show approaches they may also be posting a schedule of seminars on the https://hallshows.com/ web site. The four seminar stages are the Accurate Stage, the Okuma Bass Tank Stage, the Daiwa Stage and the Mammoth Lakes Stage.

     At the 976bite.com booth I will be offering special incentives on web site subscriptions and renewals that are still at pre-covid era prices. I will also have high quality 976-Bite pocket t-shirts and men’s and lady’s tank tops for sale at bargain prices.  Included in the t-shirt offerings are a limited number of the “old school” 976-Bite logo only shirts.

    Even if you do not need to renew your subscription to 976bite.com right now, we can add the time to your existing subscription so you can take advantage of the pre-covid era pricing and the show specials.  If you are not ready to fish right now, you also have the option of buying your subscription at the show to get the show incentives and having me activate the subscription for you at a later date of your choosing.  Even if it is just to say hello, I really enjoy seeing you in person!

     The Del Mar Bart Hall Show will symbolize the beginning of the new fishing season as anglers gather to gear up for the fishing season that lies ahead.   It is time to think about and prepare for the upcoming fishing season and I hope to see you at the show!

     Sincerely,
     Bob Vanian

Thursday June 29, 2023 —Notice From Port of San Diego concerning Shelter Island Launch Ramp’s West Side Floating Docks Being Closed Due to Structural Damage

    Today I got notice from the Port of San Diego that the west side floating docks at the Shelter Island Launch Ramp are closed for repairs.

     Below in italics are cut and paste sections from the notice:

West Side Floating Docks at Shelter Island Boat Launching Ramp Closed Due to Structural Damage

Port is Expediting Repairs, Requests Patience as Boaters Use Boat Launch Over Upcoming Holiday Week

For public safety, the Port of San Diego has closed the west side floating docks at the Shelter Island Boat Launching Ramp due to structural damage. The Port of San Diego’s engineering department and consultants are working quickly to assess the cause and extent of the damage, determine what repairs are needed, and to schedule repairs

In the meantime, the Port urges boaters to use caution when using the boat launch ramp. The Port also requests patience as only the east side floating docks are accessible at this time, which may cause backups and delays, especially over the typically busy 4th of July holiday.
 
The Port will release additional information as it becomes available and will keep the public posted on when the west side floating docks are anticipated to reopen.
 
There are four boat launching ramps on San Diego Bay provided at no cost to boaters. In addition to Shelter Island, they are located at Pepper Park in National City, at Bayfront Park/J Street Marina Park in Chula Vista, and at Glorietta Bay in Coronado. For more information, go to

* Location       near the Tonga Islands  RECOMMENDED ACTIONS——————-Actions to protect human life and property willvary within tsunami advisory areas. If you are in a tsunami advisory area;  * Move out of the water, off the beach, and away from   harbors, marinas, breakwaters, bays and inlets.  * Be alert to and follow instructions from your local   emergency officials because they may have more detailed or   specific information for your location.  * If you feel a strong earthquake or extended ground rolling   take immediate protective actions such as moving inland   and/or uphill preferably by foot.  * Boat operators,     * Where time and conditions permit, move your boat out to       sea to a depth of at least 180 feet.      * If at sea avoid entering shallow water, harbors,       marinas, bays, and inlets to avoid floating and       submerged debris and strong currents.  * Do not go to the shore to observe the tsunami.  * Do not return to the coast until local emergency officials   indicate it is safe to do so.  IMPACTS——-Impacts will vary at different locations in the advisoryareas. If you are in a tsunami advisory area;  * A tsunami with strong waves and currents is possible.  * Waves and currents can drown or injure people who are   in the water.  * Currents at beaches and in harbors, marinas,   bays, and inlets may be especially dangerous.  * Some impacts may continue for many hours to days after   arrival of the first wave.  * The first wave may not be the largest so later waves may   be larger.  * Each wave may last 5 to 45 minutes as a wave encroaches   and recedes.  * Coasts facing all directions are threatened because the   waves can wrap around islands and headlands and into bays.  * Strong shaking or rolling of the ground indicates an   earthquake has occurred and a tsunami may be imminent.  * A rapidly receding or receded shoreline, unusual waves and   sounds, and strong currents are signs of a tsunami.  * The tsunami may appear as water moving rapidly out to sea,   a gentle rising tide like flood with no breaking wave,   as a series of breaking waves, or a frothy wall of water.  ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND NEXT UPDATE————————————– * Refer to the internet site tsunami.gov for more information.  * Pacific coastal residents outside California, Oregon,   Washington, British Columbia and Alaska should refer to the   Pacific Tsunami Warning Center messages at tsunami.gov.  * This message will be updated within 30 minutes.
