Here's a quick video and photo form the 2007 gathering at Elk. I had a great time and can't wait for next year!

Cool vid and photos..  whew, foggy!  Thanks Mahi!

But c'mon... what a tease!  I am so jealous.

Bring on the reports already!  I'm glued to my lappie.  Don't make me call 911.   :smt009

Can't wait for the full report.
It looks like the swell was low enough that you didn't have to walk all the way to the other end of the beach to launch.
I hope is was as good coming back.
I sure missed not being there, but I sure am not missing the drive home or the clean up.
It is still all worth it.

I'll let others chime in about the fishing since I don't want to steal the thunder.

I will, however, report that the real winner of the weekend was the Coastside Fishing Club.  

Two years ago our raffle raised $800 and we were very proud of that. 

Last year the raffle raised $1600 and we were blown away. 

This year our prize list was larger than any we'd had before and I felt confident that we could up the ante and break the $2K mark... boy was I wrong!

As it turned out, NCKA emptied their pocketbooks and must have done everything short of selling their children to the gypsies to raise an unbelieveable $3,015 for the Coastside fishing club!

Way to go!!!

Oh, and Randy is the man who walked away with the new custom rod.  Congratulations Randy!

Thanks again to all who donated to the raffle, including many personal donations from tourney participants.  This wouldn't have been possible without all of you!

Another great event...thanks to all who came, fished, cooked, ate, cleaned up etc.  We had a great time!!!

The weigh-in had lots of excitement.  Fuzzy Tom had the early contender, but his 13# fish was bumped to second about midway through by Danglin's 15# fish.  Danglin's fish hung in until the bitter end when JTF showed LATE in the game with a 16# unit that bumped him to 2nd. SOOoooo

JTF takes 1st and walks away with a new Marauder from Cobra Kayaks and GWKC
Danglin takes 2nd and won a new all carbon Accent paddle from GWKC
Fuzzy wins 3rd and brings home a Okuma yak rod from the guys @ Outdoor Pro Shop


The raffle and potluck were NUTS!

that was a great event, raising that kind of money for coastside is incredible, we should be proud to be part of such a special grass roots organization! the raffle was incredible, now randy can say he owns a $3000 fishing rod, because that what we all wanted, it was sweet!
lots of good people there, i would like to give an honorable mention to;
mudshark and his bud [sorry, forgot your name, too much tequila] for the sickest kayak trailing yet, complete with a fish cleaning station with lights and a beer cooler!
and chuck's deep frying prowess; my wife said "how come it does not taste like this when you cook it?"-ouch

oh yeah, the fishing report. lots of wind and fog  the water was rough on the outside of the bay, nice in close.  lots of blues and blacks, a good amount of lings, some reds. even some cabs.

Anita and I had a blast! Great folks, beer ,tequilla, and lots and lots of food.
I got on the water at 6, caught a 23ish ling right off the bat, released and caught an assortment of legal and protected, all released, JTF gave me a nice keeper ling and showed me a fishy reef he knows-I forgot my battery and transducer, fishing blind!!!- nothing for a while then at 12:45 I hook up with a big swimbait, landing a pissed off big ling, and while he's thrashing and snapping between my knees, he throws the swim bait in the water. Frank is right next to me and wants to know what color swim bait and when I pull it in, there's a BIGGER ling on it.
So frank gets JTFs ling and before I even land this one, its 1:00. Half an hour to paddle in and get my ass up that hill. Left the yak on the beach, Anita was there, she carried the poles and I ran the fish up with minutes to spare.
And at just under eight pounds, I was like 10th? Should have taken my time up that bear of a hill...Congrats JTF, much thanks to Sean and his family,Bill and his and all the folks we met, happy fishing!
