2017 AOTY/DOTY Entry

Pages: [1]
Registration is now open for GS11.  I've revised the qualifications sheet and the rules recently, so check it out.

This just in (as of 1/25/17) - We WILL have a new kayak as part of the raffle.  Our own RacinRob has confirmed a Wilderness Systems boat again - thank you, Rob!!  Each participant gets an entry toward the Grand Prize kayak.

While some details are still up in the air about the shirt and ink colors and the format of the raffle, most of the other Gimme Shelter traditions are part of this year's plan as usual.  We'll have Gyotaku fish printing where kids 15 and under will print for free and possibly win a cash prize.  We'll have a potluck and raffle awards ceremony hopefully at the campground pavilion as it's been the last few years, and I think KayakJack and his volunteer army will bring back the awesome Tack Shack.  We'll have a safety meeting down at the ramp where my laptop might fly or my vehicle may instantly become disabled!  We'll have a fishing tournament where I've added a species - starry flounder, just to keep it interesting.  We'll hopefully have great diving and pre-fishing water and beautiful sunny days to enjoy the Lost Coast and each other in the world class setting of Shelter Cove.

I've added to the application and qualification sheet, and I appreciate everyone being patient about complying with what still amount to very basic paperwork requirements. 

Registration fees have remained unchanged since GS4.  Shirt prices are the same as last year, but I'm only offering a zip hoodie this year - they're more pricey at $50.  They'll be cool, and I know at least Won's gonna buy one.  :)  Also, I learned from the hat production last year.  The hats will be high quality and are $25.

The bottom line for this event is celebrating the NCKA community.  Prizes and commercialism have been identified as secondary priorities.  I plan to make the event everything that it's been leading up to this point, and my goal is always to enjoy it immensely at the same time.  I look forward to spending time with my NCKA family.  :smt001

Discussion can continue at whatever pace is desired.  I'll likely get revved up now and then over the coming months and do some pic dumps and video archive revivals of past GS's and Shelter Cove stuff from over the years.  Please feel free to do the same. 

Part of what has become my GS Scheme is to tone down the buildup, and that way hopefully only those who really want some GS will be the ones to attend.

Thanks - please post questions on this thread, and I'll keep it checked and updated.

Probably won't maintain an updated roster this year, so be sure to get in touch with me if you don't get a welcome email.  Anyone ever not gotten a welcome email?

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.
