OK fellas you wanted it, you Got It! The KOP is back! Please fill free to join the Sac Crew both otw and/or for food and drinks afterwards at Round Table Pizza. This is STRICTLY a FNC and NOT an Official Event or Tournament. There will be a $10 MBF side bet among the anglers who wish to do so. If you don't know what MBF is, figure it out.

If you seriously plan on attending this FNC, please say so and I'll add you to the Roll Call list. For the MBF, the format will go like this: Your two longest Fish, Striper or Salmon Only, total combined inches of both fish=your score. Best three scores takes the 50/30/20 pot. That's it, that simple. We will go over the MBF SB again the morning of and I'll collect frog skins then. If you have any questions regarding the MBF SB, then please PM me and not post on this thread.

We will be launching at Sunrise, and calling it quits around 1230. Afterwards, we will pack up and take over the Round Table Pizza at the South Port Town Center 2105.

See ya guys there... :smt006

Well, here it is.
I'm finally hitting the BIG 50.
My wife has been trying to figure out how to celebrate with all my friend, while still allowing me to get some water therapy. 

So here's the plan;
Since I didn't have an event this year (way too many anyways), we decided to have have a fish-n-chill instead.
Format will be the same as my events, except .....
No Competition, No Trophies, No Prizes, No Worries ... Just Fish'n and Chill'n (and maybe a souvenir of the day).
Angler of the day will be just that ... "Angler of the Day" 

If this sounds like your kind of fun (and you want to help celebrate my B-Day), make your reservation at Turner Cut Resort on the Calif Delta for Sat and Sun Nov. 22/23, 2014.
(tell them you're with the kayaking group so they can keep us together)

I will bring the usual for food and drinks, but bring on the pot-luck and as always,

Hope to see ya there,
Eric / Yakhopper

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.
