Hello Fellow Northcoast Anglers
My name is Charlie Holthaus and I am a volunteer with the Samoa Peninsula Fire District which serves the Humboldt Bay Peninsula area of Humboldt County.  I am an avid fresh and saltwater fisherman and free dive for abalone quite often.  This is my first post on this forum and wanted to intorduce myself to the group.  Having grown up in Trinity County I consider myself primarily a river fisherman but since moving to the Humboldt Bay area over 15 years ago, I have adapted to all the various fisheries the northcoast of California has to offer.  I perfer to fish from powerboats but do enjoy a kayak outing when conditions are right. 
I started this thread bacause I thought there might be some interest in our upcoming fishing related event.

On July 30, 2011 we will be hosting the 2nd Annual Perch'n on the Peninsula Surfperch Fishing Tournament and BBQ Fundraiser.  There is a $20 entry donation fee and you must register prior to fishing.  Fishing is allowed anywhere in ocean waters including Humboldt Bay and the check in deadline is 3pm at the Peninsula Elementary School in Samoa, California (located across the street from the Samoa Cookhouse).  Pre-registration is available at several local businesses (see flier), pre-registering allows you to go directly to your fishing location on tournament day, if you don't pre-register you will be required to register at the School in Samoa before fishing on tournament day.  There will ba a Juniors Category (under 16) and a Seniors Category (over 16) with cash prizes (5% of entry proceeds) awarded for the largest surfperch in each category, the more participants the higher the prize value.
The BBQ Fundraiser is open to everyone and admission is only a $5 donation (Free for Tournament Participants and children 6 and under).  BBQ Lunch will be served from noon to around 3:30 PM or whenever everyone gets their fill.  There will be some great raffle and selent auction prizes available that were donated by many local business sponsors.  The Tournament and Raffle prize presentations will begin at 3:30 pm.
If you have any questions or want to make special arrangements for pre-registration please contact me at 707-499-7088.
Thanks for reading, Tight Lines and Happy Perch'n
