Pages: [1]
It's about time for our second annual Fish 'n' Cleanup, but this year it is all about the Delta!

10/25/2014 (Saturday)

Fees & Registration: None


Many will launch at sunrise and fish in the early AM (high tide and outgoing).  The launch is muddy and isn't particularly easy. Drysuits or something to keep your legs dry during launch is advised.

Cleanup starts at 10ish or earlier if anyone feels like being an extra good steward. 

Potluck starts around 1:00, and awards will be given during the potluck.

Shag Slough at the Liberty Island Rd accesses. This is a pretty central location and is both an hour away from Vallejo and Sacramento. For directions see link at the bottom of the page.

What to bring specifically for the event:  Trash bags, gloves & hand sanitizer and drinking water.  If you have a 5gal container of water please bring it to refill our hand washing station (there is no running water at this location).

Prizes: Headwaters has prizes for trash pickup (will be a surprise)!

Traildad has generously offered to bring a portapotty for the event.

Tim/Daleshark has volunteered to be the grillmaster for the day.
If you would like to let us know what you plan to bring please post up on this thread.

We are looking for people who can haul trash out from the event and to our dump location near Davis.

Available species are striper, sturgeon, crappie and black bass.
If you plan to target sturgeon please make sure you know the regs.
Don't hesitate to ask any specific fishing questions on this thread, or send racinrob a PM  :smt044

To celebrate Joel "Mooch" Lotilla's 1yr Anniversay, the family thought that it would be nice to have a Fish & Chill on Oct 11, 2014 @ Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay, Ca.

Joel was always fond of 'Fish and Chills' and what better way to remember/honor him than to just kick back, have a BBQ/potluck and remember the good times we shared with Joel.

Weather permitting, we will make a paddle out to the Green Can and pay our respects to our brother; maybe drop a line in and see who comes up with the biggest fish. Nothing to technical or eleborate in the way of a tourny or contest, just maybe alittle "Money Better Friends" for those that are interested; MBFs were one of Joel's choice of competition. And just to make it fun (and since there are many shallow reefs in the area), "handline" reels only are will be used.

Then return back to shore, fire up the grill and kick back by the fire, and Chill... I will be trying to acquire the use of the area by the Half Moon Bay Kayak for this event; however, with the recent landscaping this may not be possible. If this is the case, we will just camp and chill in the upper lot.

One of Joel's wishes was to create a charity for 'Kids with Cancer' to get them out on the water and fish; so we will be trying to organize a raffle (or silent auction) to raise some money for his request. Please let me know if you would like to or can donate any new (or slightly used) items that we can raffle/auction. For those of you who have had previous events/tourneys, I would be wondering if you can contact you sponsors to see if they would be willing to make a donation to the Silent Auction; your help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's the link for the Silent Auction: http://www.norcalkayakanglers.com/index.php?topic=59366.msg669668#new

On behalf of the SisMooch, thanks for your support and hope you can join us!
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.
