CHULA VISTA — It turns out the Helldiver that was a "Beast" to fly also is a monster to lift. That's what divers are learning about the World War II SB2C-4 Helldiver that has rested at the bottom of Lower Otay Lake since it was ditched there by Navy pilot E.D. Frazar and Army back-seater Joseph Metz on May 28, 1945.
I learned how to fish from my dad teaching me how to fish at Lower Otay with a Zebco and a bobber when I was around 5 or 6 years old. Those are some great memories! . I may have even roped a catfish in that exact spot, but I know I at least snagged a Crappy. Dad taught me early on and I love it to the day...
Damn, those were some great times. Back when Chula Juana was small, and Dad would take us boys out to Procter Valley when it was raining, let us ride his enduro and let us shoot for a good hour or two. Back then it was just BB Guns, but Proctor Valley RULED! I remember snaggin' some baby Crappy from the stream and naming them when they plopped in the fish tank. Good fuggin' times! The best!
