Title: ARW Halibut tournament June 17,2017 (Official Results pg.1)
Post by: Lost_Anchovy on April 05, 2017, 10:47:50 PM
Thanks to everyone  who attended the ARW 2017 tournament. It was a great success for the inaugural event, and we appreciate all those that came out to participate or just to attend the potluck and raffle.

Here are the  official results!!

First Place: (KING OF THE WALL)
Steve S. (29.5 inch halibut and 12 lbs)

Second Place: (QUEEN OF THE WALL)
Ako Culver (26 inch and 8 lbs)

Third Place: (POACHER OF THE WALL)
Rob Knoles (Racin Rob) (24 inch and 4 lbs)

I also want to acknowledge Anthony (Gearaddict) and Tiny fro stepping in and assisting us with event Logistics. Their help really made the even go smooth and enjoyable for all those involved.

Finally, the ARW organizing committee will be donating 2,200 dollars raised from the tournament to PIF!!
We look forward to organizing the 2018 ARW tournament, and with all the small halibut caught this year, expectations will be high for next year!

Victor, we are planning to purchase a Large cooked pig, fruit and drinks as the main dish for the event.
We would like to hold a NCKA style side pot luck for the event for those want to bring extra to share. If you want to purchase separate tickets for the lunch portion just send me a PM and paypal me $5 dollars. --Keith

That's ok, our event is geared towards Kayakers. Either way, we are going to have a great time with those that come out.

I will start posting the list of people who signed up when I get a little time. I'm gonna scope arw when the weather clears up and see what is the halibut situation is out there. There have been some halibut action at oyster point but a lot of small ones. There is a ton of bait all overy tho. Hopefully it is the same at arw. I'll scope out the halibut hotel and see if anyone has checked in and overstayed their reservation.  :smt001

Two launch locations. Launch your kayak from either boat ramp or the beach. Halibut are all over ARW.

Question,  i sliced the first 2 fingers of my left hand at work Wednesday.  I lost part of the first, the second took 14 stitches to re-attach.  I'm registered for the tourney but doubt I'm going to be able to paddle.  Any issue with my son utilizing my registration?  No kayak experience but a group event probably isn't a bad place to learn, plus it gets him out of the house and off the video games.

I'll show up either way but fishing is most likely not going to happen.

I haven't even fished the last four or five tournaments I've been to. If nothing else, go to meet a bunch of great people and eat a bunch of good ass food.

As far as the fishing, even though it's a tournament just about anybody there will be willing to answer any questions you have and share any tips to help you out.

Definitely go if you're interested.

Wanted to get some pro advice on this tourney. Never fished at ARW and never caught a Halibut. Been ocean fishing my whole life but new to fishing in California. Should I try it out? :)

definitely you should come on out.

Take a look at this page. It has some great information. If you have any additional questions, let me know and I'll try and help :)

OK We are coming to the final day of early registration. After June 5, you will not be able to get the ARW tourney shirt. It's a good one. Once it closes, i will be putting in the orders and it will be final.

The shirts will be delivered on event day. Ariel has taken care of the main course (Paid and awaiting delivery)
We will post up the PIF raffle prizes when they get collected and the ARW tourney trophy when it is done.

Excited to get this thing going. Can't believe it's been almost a year since Ariel and I considered putting this thing together. Gonna be a good one --Keith :smt001

1) First you tie up in the middle of a very large raft of fishing kayaks and drop your line straight down.

2) Follow instructions in video posted by Naoaki

Grrr, typed a response and fat fingers hit Esc.

The list shows me (Robert Lightfoot) instead of my son (Hunter Lightfoot).  I had a Dr apt today.  The meat they sewed back onto my finger isn't exactly mending.  They glued and taped it down and said come back in a month.  Worst case is they just cut it out and let it heal like the other finger.   Shots between the knuckles bring the major suck. :smt012

It doesn't say that now so I can't read it. Are you thinking about the registration with t-shirt cut off. I was told that the plan had been to register until the Friday before the event so I think we're talking two different cutoff dates. Nothing to get excited about. We can still attend, fish and have fun.

To: Registered Participants
From: ARW tournament committee


The tournament organizing committee thanks you for registering for the ARW tournament, and we look forward to seeing everyone on June 17, 2017.  Here are a few items to keep in mind before and on tournament day.

SAFETY

Safety is the top concern for us. We want to make sure everyone has a great time and come home safely. Remember to bring a functioning PFD, and VHF radio--these are mandatory items for the event. The personal floatation device must be worn at all times during the course of the event, and channel 69 is the designated communication frequency for the VHF. Please keep the channel clear for emergency communication.

WAIVERS
All participants must sign the mandatory safety waiver before launch. Jon (Crazyfisher) will be handling registration on event day.

Parking & Launch
There is limited parking space at the Encinal parking lot.  We recommend carpooling with a friend if possible, and arrive early for the event.  Participants can park in the designated parking spots and along the chain-fenced wall.

Participants can launch at the boat launch or the beach adjacent to the rock wall. Please keep one lane open for boaters.

PIF Raffle
Donít leave right after 2 p.m. ,there is a great lunch prepared and the Pay it Forward raffle! Many of our generous sponsored have provided great prizes for the raffle.  Remember all the funds generated from the event will be donated to help support victims and supporters of canceróour fellow friends.

RAFFLE TICKETS will be sold at the event and will be CASH ONLY.


Once again thanks for registering and we look forward to a great event!

Tight Lines,
Team Lost Anchovy

Knowing that it will be a last minute decision as to whether or not I could attend, I did not register. However, it looks like I will likley be there to at least mingle and show support. Not sure if I'll get there early enough to fish, but deffinatley in time to chill. Since i didn't register, can I make a donation somewhere?
I'll also try to bring something to the pot luck.
See ya there,

I still haven't receive a majority of the waiver form. I'll have a bunch at the event for you to fill out and sign before starting the tournament.

To save some time, if you can fill it out and sign it. Email it to jon@thelostanchovy.com or crazysupratt@gmail.com

Some of you sent in your forms however it was not signed. Once you check in with me, I'll let you know if you have signed or not. I do have your form so you don't need to fill it out again, just a signature :)

I'll be posted near the boat ramp with a laptop with my dog next to me. (I will be there at 5:30-6:00 am) If I can have everyone please check in with me so we know who is all out on the water for safety reason. If you have any questions let me know. 4 days and counting.

   I probly wouldnt bother but since this is closed to new entry I will. I am entered but it looks like I can't fish saturday. If there is somebody out there that really wants to compete and is not in, maybe you can have my spot.
If there is, maybe you could ask Lost Anchovie if it's OK. I could be there in the morning to pick up $25 if we get the OK. I'm 20 minutes away, I want to check it out anyway. The six year old reason I can't fish usually gets up around 7 on saturdays.

That is fine with me to transfer. There are a few people who are trying to get in and will more than happy to take your spot in the morning.

just a reminder to check in with me. As you check-in I will verify rather you signed the waiver or not as well as get your goodie bag and shirt.

The tournament safety meeting will be at 7:00. I will be checking in people until 9. If you do not see me, you can find Keith or Ariel. I will have 4 clipboards with the waiver on them out near the boat launch.

See you guys in a few hours. Let the big bootay win. Weather should be awesome. Looking forward to it :)

also there will be a white 65 qt pelican cooler out near the check in or around the Grey 4runner that will have water and gatorade for you guys. Help yourself :)

BIG Thank you's to Ariel, Kieth, Jon, Shifra, and everyone else that helped out. We had good conditions for the tourney and a lot of halibuts were caught. I only caught shakers and a leopard shark but it was a great day to be OTW. Thanks again guys!   :smt001

Awesome event,
Unfortunately, didn't get there in time to hit the water. But made it there in time to grab a clutch of raffle tickets and hit the chill. Got to see a few brothers (and sisters) I haven't seen in a while.
Enjoyed a sample of that delicious pig and a few other delectables. After catching up and enjoying the feast, had the opportunity to congratulate the top anglers, than came the raffle.
All I can say is ... I was VERY lucky and a big THANK YOU to Tammy at California Canoe & Kayak.
Looks like I'll be making a special trip to Oakland in the near future.

Sorry guys. I'll get a report up by tomorrow. All the organizers have been pretty tired today and enjoying fathers day.
Yes Rob got third and a very nice award. Lol.  I'm glad he got a flattie tho. Most were on the small size but we got
four contenders- Enough for first, second and third.

Still sorting through all the video and photo.
Feel free to post up your photos and post for anyone that wants to chime in. Great event!! We couldn't have been more happy with the outcome. NCKA at our finest. --Keith

Thank you everyone for coming out and supporting the tournament. A very big thank you to all the sponsors. It was definitely a long day going on an hour of sleep but it was totally worth it! I'm glad the fish was biting although all were small it was at least action! The leopard shark crashed the party it seem like but it provided some line tugging. Just glad some keepers were found! Congrats to all the winners.

Have some great footage and a few pictures that I took on the water. I'll be going through it and post it when I'm done.

Once again THANK YOU for coming out and looking forward to next year :)
