2016 AOTY/DOTY Entry

Pages: [1]
update 7/18...  FORMS UP.


Geeze.  I am Lagging!!! Sorry. Here's forms and contact info for KC

1st prize will be a new fishing kayak, most likely a Predator.  Thank you Mike Mowrey and Johnson Products!!

The workable date KC came up with is August 13th.  I know this will not acommodate everyone who wants, but that is the target.  And unlike many derbies, having a lot of entrants is not the primary aspect.

Having fun and hanging with old and new friends is what it's about.  Details will follow, and I'll post here on this fist enry, as I get them.  Probly mid-week.

It's roots.  Launch from Santa Cruz hrbor, make it back by 11am weigh-in, and then go BBQ.

August will also mean more and better fish.  We're still waiting for halibut to really come in this year, so mid-August might be prime time.  I hope so!!!

Hey Gang,  here is the link to the signup page for this year's Trinidad Rockfish Wars.  It just went live today!


Hope to see you all there!

One F

Here' the sign ups so far for TRW6.  Remember, it's ONLY $25 and that includes a T-shirt if you get signed up by the cutoff date.  Just follow the link at the top of the thread and get 'er done!  It's going to be a fun time and the prizes are shaping up to be epic again this year!

... At Ocean Cove Campground.

Tournament central is at group site one just like last year. Camping is $26 per night, per vehicle, but unfortunately they do not take reservations for individual campsites. If you can put together a group they may have other group sites available to reserve. The cost of the group site is $520 for two nights for up to 10 vehicles, additional vehicles are $26 per night, per vehicle. Their telephone number is 707-847-3422

The tournament will be held on Saturday the 24th. I will post more info regarding registration, rules and prizes soon.

Fish on,
 :smt006 Here are the registration forms for 2016 Albion Open. More details will come later but I had to get these up now as time is running. Sorry for the delay. A lot of life events have taken place in the last year for us. The Albion/ Little River Volunteer Fire Dept. will be the beneficiary this year of the event!

There will be three choices of colors this year. Black, white and a sea blue. The lighter colors will show the artwork the best. Prices are on the registration form. Please remember to circle the size, list the quantity and color choice.

Fill out the waiver please. You will not be able to compete without it.

There will be a huge raffle again this year. Tickets will still be a buck. Prizes will be shown on a separate thread.

The rules are the same as last year. Four specie in the group. Lingcod, Cabezon, Rockfish and Greenling. Out of these four specie you may choose three. No duplicates in the bag. The total weight of your three fish will be your score. First through third will win a painting by Linda Koons. First place will be the watercolor painting that is our logo artwork this year. There will be a special 100.00 dollar prize each for the heaviest salmon and the largest Dungeness crab. Any questions please PM me. Thank you all for attending Albion Open 2016 Craig and Linelle

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.
