Friday afternoon, met Fishunter and Otobepelagic at the HMB Kayak Company "camp ground" while the rest of the crew slowly trickled in. Weather was typical with wind and fog so we decided to hunker down and forgo launching out and setting traps. We built a fire and the party started. All I can say is lot's of beer, smoked salmon, man-chili and then dessert. Jim Beam was then served while we watched killer Kylo hump Red Dog  :grommit: And later, we were treated to NCKA's first dog fighting event. = Featuring Killer Kylo vs. German Jake!! (Video and pics to follow) The Jim Beam kept pouring till Chucke reminded us that we had to be up in a few hours = it was 3AM and none of us had a clue  :smt118

Saturday morning, more NCKA 'ers show up and the crab harvesting was on it's way. The wind and swell report was not exactly a "walk in the park" but the hardcore endured and many crabs were killed and the foodfest was on!!!

I'll let the others chime in and let the pics tell the rest of the story!!!

Congratulations to Eric B. for catching the biggest Dungie of the day and to Chuck E for the biggest Rock Crab!!!

Thanks to all that showed up!!!

Many thanks to Chuck E for getting this event going and to HMB Kayak Company and Promar for supporting our madness!!!!

Congrats to Eric B and Chuck for organizing. Really had a great time. Nice meeting new NCKA folks and watching Red eat crab shells.Reminded me of that movie Marley and Me.  Ended up with 6 dungies and a nice red. A nice end to my 2009-2010 crab season. Glad rockfish season is here because I am kind of tired of eating crab. Never thought I would say that. :-)

Guys,

Mark (now known as "yard sale") and I had a blast yesterday. It was great meeting everyone and putting faces to the names. Thanks for all of your generosity (the food and the knowledge)! We're looking fwd to getting out on the water with the crew soon...

Jeff (a.k.a. Steelerhead)
You should have seen the one that got away!

Sounds like a great time was had by all! I think Jim beam is very underrated and it is my camping beverage of choice. Stoked you guys got out there and made the best of the weather at hand!
