2014 AOTY/DOTY Entry

Pages: [1]
You may be aware that the Santa Cruz Harbor plans to severely curtail or close salmon fishing within the harbor.

Their current proposal would allow fishing from the Harbor entrance jetties only, with “in-harbor” fishing constrained to specific “approved events” only. Only an incoming tide of public opinion can sway the Port Commission before their decision meeting on July 21.

That’s why we are asking you to email the Port Commission Public Comment and register your support for continued fishing within the harbor, for those several weeks that the king salmon may be congregating there. It provides a rare opportunity for many youth and anglers without a way to get out on the Bay to experience fishing for king salmon and to bring something nice to the family table.

Please email your comment supporting this awesome resource- King Salmon fishing in the Santa Cruz Harbor to:


and CC:


Feel free to use any or all of the following message in your comment:

We urge the Santa Cruz Port Commission to adopt regulations that will allow continued fishing for King Salmon within the Santa Cruz Harbor, particularly the North Harbor area.

We feel the fishing can be managed and regulated to minimize impact on the Harbor resident population and infrastructure, and remind the Commission that funding sources are available to support this effort.

Fishing for salmon is a part of our culture and a reason early settlers came to the Monterey Bay. These fish play a large role for the Harbor also.

And, no one can put a price on denying a shore angler, especially the kids, the magical and momentous experience of catching a big King Salmon. Please take the offer from members of your community to formulate a collaborative plan that can help minimize the problems for the Harbor, while maximizing our salmon fishing opportunities.

BEANIE ($15)


Welcome back to The Albion Open 2014. This year if anything like last year will be an amazing time with lots of fish and good times. There will be cash prizes this year. All of you who have participated in the past four years have helped Joel and Marv immensely.  Joel is only with us in spirit now and it just won't be the same. Ever again. Marv has beaten cancer again and is working and doing well. We love you Marv! Here is how the prizes are going to work:
1st place $1000.00 cash
2nd place $500.00 cash
3rd place $250.00 cash
 The registration fees and the small profit from the clothing sales will fund the prizes and help to pay all the event costs. I hope. This is based on entries of at least 100 anglers. If we get more the cash prizes will grow and carry down a few spots. Hopefully down to fifth. It takes a lot of money to run the event. I again profit nothing.

The raffle will include a kayak and a whole lots of other great prizes from Ocean Kayak, Kokatat, Werner, Outdoor Pro Shop and a lot of others. The raffle will benefit Alex/ Alien's son who is currently dealing with kidney failure. All the proceeds after prizes bought and donated will go to him. My only hope is that we can brighten his day just a bit. He is only eleven years old. If you have something to donate for the raffle that would be very much appreciated.

Registration with clothing purchases have to be in by June 30th. Registration only to be in by July 20th. There will be on site registration at the event site on Friday July 25th from noon until 5 pm. The event will be at The Albion River Campground. www.albionrivercampground.com The clothing will be Navy blue for the sweatshirts and navy or white for the T shirts.

 If you have any questions or comments please PM me or ask here on this thread.

 God Bless you Joel wherever you are. We will always remember the fun and good times. We will give you a big shout.

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.
