"Yes, the New Year is just around the corner and the passing of another year! Once again I have maintained my youthful appearance and physique while the rest of my friends and cohorts have deteriorated and aged terribly."-Bigsur

This is the 8th year officially for Big Sur's New Years Day Tradition and I invite everyone to stop by Metcalf Bottoms picnic area off Little River Rd between 12:00 and 4:00 pm Wednesday, January 1st, 2020 New Years Day, throw a line and get your fishing karma on for 2020. This is the very description of unorganized and unsponsored by any group, just fishin fanatics and friends gathering for a minute of casting, telling tall tales, outright lies and recounting the last year's escapades.

As usual no event would be complete without a competition, and as tradition demands we will be competing for whoever catches the largest fish, uhh...make that any fish! Once again the winner will receive the coveted Herb's Welding Shop hat and braggin rights for a year, where he or she will than have their picture taken in the hat, which we immediately take back cause it's the only hat we have! In addition the winner receives a six pack of Armour's finest Vienna Sausage {DISCLOSURE: Armour denies any affiliation with this event and asks that we change to Hormel Potted Meat]
"As we speak Duckypaddler is again hard at work in his secret underground lair creating the Big Sur's New Years Day winners 2020 plaque."

Someone asked what to bring,...if you have never been to
Bigsur's New Years Day Tradition food is a big part of it. Just like every year in we provide hot dog's on the grill with fixin's, and hot coffee, we bring 10 x 10 pop up canopies for those of a weaker nature to huddle under again! Why even the Mr. Buddy heaters may make an appearance again like last year. We just ask you to bring a side item or dessert to share along with your beverage of choice. We will have multiple grills and some have brought soups and chilli.
