For those teams with the ???, PM me your team name whenever you can.  Thanks!
I have had several questions about immersion gear, radios etc. so I want to be perfectly clear about this... You are all responsible for your own safety. This is a dangerous sport and you must be appropriately prepared for any situation.


Registration is still open but we are past the clothing deadline so you would not get a free t-shirt

All registrations must be completed by Sept. 7th at midnight to receive a tournament t-shirt.
All clothing orders must also be completed by Sept. 7th at midnight.

We are past the clothing deadline so no t-shirt, sorry

The theme of the tournament is simplicity... old school kayak fishing. Nothin' fancy, just the angler and his/her gear, testing their skills.

 To that end I am gonna level the playing field by limiting each angler to one rod and reel and four lures (provided), everybody fishes the same lures, no bait, no scents.  No mechanized propulsion systems, no sails, no fish finders, no GPS, just a kayak, a paddle, a fishing rod, landing gear and safety equipment. This years raffle will benefit our own Amos Foreman. As many of you already know SuperVato aka Amos was injured a few months ago by a falling I-beam. Those of you who know will surely know that Amos is pretty tough and not likely to feel sorry for himself. As such it may not be apparent that he has been unable to work since the injury. After a bit of arm twisting he agreed to be the raffle beneficiary on the condition that he not "profit" from it, i.e., he will only accept enough to replace what he has actually lost. Of course I agreed and I asked him to chose a charity to receive any overage. He has chosen the Brain Injury Network. The Brain Injury Network (BIN) is the first brain-injury-survivor-operated, international and USA national, Survivor of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), nonprofit, advocacy organization. (Founded 1998.) This nonprofit organization is for and by the brain injury survivor community.

Feel free to PM me or post on this thread if you have something you'd like to donate to the raffle.

About the White Seabass
The white seabass (Atractoscion, nobilis) is not a bass but a member of the croaker family and is related to the California corbina. White seabass (WSB) occur from Juneau, Alaska south to Baja California. They are usually found in areas of rocky bottom and around kelp beds. White seabass are present in California waters all year long. They spawn in kelp beds in the spring and summer. In the fall they form large schools and feed on spawning squid. In the winter they head off-shore following the squid and other baitfish. They can swim 300 miles in 2-3 months. White seabass feed on anchovies, pilchards, herring, and other fish, as well as on crustaceans and squid. The average weight of a 28-inch fish is 7 1/2 pounds. The all-tackle record is 83 pounds, 10 ounces.

The white seabass is a fish that has been much sought after commercially and by anglers. Its dense flesh is white and tender and highly valued, but it spoils quickly without proper care. White seabass landings have fluctuated considerably over the past century, with the commercial take ranging from a high of 3.4 million pounds in 1959 to a low of 58,000 pounds in 1997. The white seabass are making a tremendous comeback after years of pollution and gill netting took their toll. United Anglers assisted in getting legislation passed which now prohibits gill nets within three miles of the coastline. The Hubbs-Sea World Research Institute operates the white seabass hatchery at Carlsbad.  The researchers and volunteers have raised, tagged and released approximately 413,000 juvenile seabass into the waters of Southern California since 1986.
