Great fun and great food. Met some new friends on the way up and fed them breakfast on the side of the road before going on. They were very appreciative.

Oh no... " the dreaded two spots for reporting of event..."

 Here goes the cut and paste with a little extra...

Great Turnout, Weather was Nice...

Fish took the day off, little slow,
 but what the Hey, it's fishing and we were able to so in some great conditions...

Thanks SBD for a making it Happen, Albion looks like a Great Venue for us now, Think I'll be going solo next year though as to enjoy the Full effect...

A Healthy Ling and I think I would have been in the Money!!!! 

 Just a nice Cabbie for me and various small Rockies....

 ConGrats to the Winners!!!  Which was everyone there....... 

   Great to see all that I had time to talk to and see ya soon....... 


the extra...
 Looks like 2 dudes in a small aluminum power boat ran into a rock during the tourney, that's what the sirens where about. They were rescued by the Coast Guard with their boat being a total loss. They were banged up pretty good too..

 guess there is a boat out there with a motor on it somewhere...

 Congrats to the winners, thanks to Sean for putting on the contest, and thanks to everyone who participated. Special thanks to Fishing-Jay for sharing meds and Hojo for the killer pics dvd. Here are a few pics and a question for Danglin. Did the boat run aground over by the Gap? I saw the coast guard cutter over there for a while. I also saw some NCKAers shoot the Gap earlier. Crazy. These pics were all taken close to shore. The swell and chop was worse outside, especially towards the end. I had a great time catching and releasing but no contest contenders for me. Next year..... jim

A lot of us are just now getting home I think. Jack, the food was off the hook. I had my camera on the wrong setting and almost all of my pics turned out to large for this format now.So I have to figure out how to re-size them.Here,s our host and mc

Congrats to Kiel and Craig for first and second place.
Fishing was pretty slow for all.
I am going to have to say that this was the best NCKA event to date.
The facilities were perfect; easy launch, indoor hot showers, indoor plumbing, plenty of room to stretch out. Jumping from camp to camp and visiting and just hanging out was the best.
Got to say hi to some old friends and got to make some new ones.
Camped next to Don D on one side and Darius with the Utah posse Ed and Allen on the other side.
Great meeting you guys and hanging out.
There was so much to do for everyone who showed up it was ridiculous.
Becky, Adrianna, Anita and Theresa paddled up river during the tourney. Jelly and CHUB hung out together going after dungies off the dock Saturday evening. There is just so much to offer for everyone who shows up. I hope this location is the venue from here on out.
I ended up in 3rd place. Couldn't get a legal ling to save my life but I did get some cool parting gifts; a plaque, a Ben Williams original. a new VHF radio, a blunt tip dive knife and won the MBF pot of $170. Thanks for all who entered that and also to those that didn't.  :smt044 Mahi had a bigger rockfish.
It got pretty sloppy OTW towards the end but in the morning the conditions were great.
Thanks Sean for putting together another top notch event.
I am going to take a wild guess and say this was a lot easier for you than setting up Elk.

Many thanks to Sean for putting this together. Also, many thanks to my camp neighbors Bob and Mary. I enjoyed your company. :smt006

question for Danglin. Did the boat run aground over by the Gap?

 Have no idea, just know the Coast Guard dropped them off by truck right next to me where their car and " Empty " boat trailer were...

they were scared up pretty good, don't know if they swam to shore or were rescued.

Sean: Thanks for setting up the event--sounds like you got a good turnout and much fun was had. Glad to her Jelly was out there too.

Tote: that pic of the gap ahead looks like a nice soup to shoot into in search of game--makes you feel like you sort of earned the fish eh?

When I look at the other kayak communities and forums versus this one I see one big difference: the community here is like nowhere else in the kayak fishing world that I have seen. We have our differences on some issues, but NCKA is still a great community for us all. Thanks to Sean (and his family as I know they helped) and all the others for helping create these great social events--its great to see even for those of us who don't have the flexibility to get up there for them.
