Welcome to the Ninth Annual Gimme Shelter Kayakfishing Tournament.  If you've never attended or followed the history of the GS series, then please spend some time reviewing past threads.  It's a lot of reading, but there's invaluable amounts of information about what we've done over the years - amazing fish caught, awesome diving, excellent competitions and camaraderie, great parties...  Just give it some time, and if you're serious about knowing what's up do this:  go to the "Fishing Events, Tournaments and Trips" page on this forum.  Look at the top blue line that says "Subject / Started by" - look over to the right where it says "Replies / Views" - click on "Views"- the screen will reset to show all posts in that section of the forum in an ascending list of total views.  So click "Views" again and it'll give the descending list, and all of the most viewed posts will be listed right below the pinned posts.  Like this:



All of the history of past GS events is there.  It comes down to this - you can ask questions here and look like a newb (no prob -  :smt001) or you can read all about the past to fill yourself in for the most part.  At least spend some time with a friend (your sponsor...) finding out what the basics are.

The format has changed a bit this year.

We will still have a scoreboard for people to keep track of the usual species, but AOTD will be a Pro Division where only Lingcod, Salmon and Halibut will score - most total inches wins, up to four fish can be entered with no more than two of any species, and the Pro Division entry is $10 more than a basic participant entry.  The cash pot consists of $10 x # of Pro Division entries, and it'll be split among top scorers if it exceeds $500 - TBD by Tournament Director.  Rockfish are out of the competition.  People will keep plenty of rockfish, and that's fine.  The competition will only be focused on the big 3 mentioned, and most prizes will be part of a weighted raffle where you're able to put tickets in the bucket of the prize you want a better chance at - raffle to benefit charities TBA.  The exception to that will be the grand prize - Old Town Predator XL - it will be raffled, and each participant, both basic and Pro Division, will have an automatic entry.

The focus this year is on gathering to enjoy each other and the Cove.

Read the attached information and forms, and ask questions here if you have them.

Im in, but confused, so if I have 3 big fish (ling, sal, butt) doesnt mean that I already won correct? since the main prize will be raffled? I am in total dark here.

Halibut season should be set in early february, I'm guessing that May is the last month they'd take away from us though.  Also, salmon season won't be set until later in April, hopefully we get the full salmon season again south of 40 10 too.

Looking forward to another great time in the cove.

Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.
Mental?  perhaps
