October Surprise!  Dave and Jessica  at Kayak Connection have been swamped all summer.  but, they still want to go with the resurrected "Roots" Derby this year.  So~ we're gonna do it right at the tail end of the season.

We call it the Roots Derby because it is the first, and the original northern California Kayak Fishing Derby.  Kayak Connection in Santa Cruz was sponsoring yearly derbies for a number of years before anyone else had even one derby.  Hearken back to the Old Days, when the crowds were small, hopes were high, we were all just learning the what how when where of kayak fishing.  Man-Dog style BBQ included of course, and proceeds go to Monterey Bay Salmon and Trout Project, as usual.

Oct 18, Sunday. Ocean Kayaks will provide a new Ocean Kayak (Or Old Town Predator) for first place winner. Second and third place prizes to be determined.

I will gather the entry and rules details and post here later this week, but mark your calendar now.......

Largest Game Fish Takes It!

We'll have weigh-ins and BBQ at 1PM back at our shop at 413 Lake Ave, right along the harbor.  We'll also have several fishing kayaks for rent, as well, be sure and call the shop to reserve yours if interested.

The entry fee for the derby is $35 - all profits will go to benefit the Monterey Bay Salmon & Trout Project.

Rules are posted below:
1) All fish must be caught from a person powered kayak, no motors or sails, or other boat assistance.
2) Fish must be legally hooked, fought, and landed (solo) by individual angler.
3) Must have a valid fishing license and adhere to all DFW regulations.
4) Launch and landing from public launch docks of Santa Cruz Harbor only.  Travel to other areas for launching and fishing is not permitted.
5) 1:00 PM is the cut-off weigh-in time.  Anglers must be present and in line for weigh-in by 1PM to qualify.
6) Heaviest weighed sport-fish wins.
7) Leopard and thresher sharks included, but no other sharks or rays qualify.
8) If two fish have exact equal weight, then the longer of the two wins.
9) Final decisions on any controversy will be made by Derbymeister with input from participants.  Derbymeister decisions are final. (Ed Note:Meister reserves right to be capricious and arbitrary in all decisions-Ed Note)
10) Waiver forms must be signed and entry fees paid prior to launching on 10/18/15.
