Looks like another great NCKA's hookup.   Sorry I can't make it due to work commitment.  Thanks for the reports and pictures guys.

NCKA's first ever CRABFEST was a lot of fun THANKS to all who attended.  Special THANKS to the Halfmoon Bay Kayak Co for hosting the event and donating the sweet Ascent Paddle as a prize.  THANKS also to Promar our prize sponsor who's already committed to go big for our next CRABFEST this November.

Congrats to EricB for winning our first NCKA Kayak Crabbing Derby with his big dungie!

Below are pics of:
-  EricB and I with the top dungeness and red rock crab
-  A Pile of cooked crab... and that's just the leftovers from lunch

CONGRADS to the NewKingCrabby!!   and RockCrabChampChuck!!   the smell of that boilling crab made me think i was walking FishermansWarf.

it was hot on friday when i got there.....so i took a nap. The wind was blowin pretty good and the water surface was almost capping. We b/s'd, grubbed&chilled into the late night(= I departed at 9pm.) Only to return with Mrs.FH in the morning. The crew was out dropping traps and Mooch was chilling, surrounded by others, like a Rockstar telling war stories.  :smt002

I ate a claws worth of crab(it was all i could handle) and it was good. The mandogs were the only reason i showed up.  :smt003  and the chowda' was VERY GOOD TOO, both of them(O2B & EWB knows chowda!!  :smt004 Can't wait for the next one!!
Barb got her first severe sunburn of the year, maybe one day she'll listen to me. :smt011

Allen "O2B" and Eric "EWB" competed in the chowder cook off.  Allen made a traditional clam chowder (picture on the right below) while Eric made a crab chowder.  Although Allen's chowder was loaded with lots of clams and potatoes which I preferred, Eric's chowder broth was off-da-hook delicious.

I think the real winners are the those who got a chance to sample them both!!!!

Ram Tube and that multi-colored bimini should not be used in the same sentence.  :smt004

I forgot to mention that's to PROMAR for the brand-new TR102W. 

And if the paddle and trap wasn't enough, ChuckE also hooked me up with another free subscription to WON.

Not a bad haul for one crab!

Oh, and special shoutout to Lino's wife, for the delicious mini cupcake macaroon things...  Those were delicious.

If you missed our CRABFEST this weekend... everyone will have another opportunity when the when the dungeness crabbing season re-opens Saturday, November 6, 2010.

The one change I propose is that we start the derby on Friday, November 5th to allow contestants to drop their traps early for maximum soak time.  No pulling pots before midnight.  That way if you sleep in Saturday morning after partying at camp the night before. :smt003
