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

Kayak & Accessory Reviews / Farmer John & Radio
« Last post by DaveTheSynthGuy on June 30, 2011, 06:15:30 pm »
After not quite a year in this sport -- I bought my first farmer john wetsuit today because I'm thinking about moving out of the bays.  I got a 2.5 mil NRS "Farmer John"wetsuit and some "booties" that seem appropriate for walking over rocks or sand. Most of the folks who fish down here in SoCal wear waders when they fish but I've only seen the ones who fish on the inside.  Since I seem to be traveling around a bit and I want to venture "outside" more .. time to get a training, a radio and a wetsuit.

 I have my surf launch and landing "lessons" booked for next week and I'll be learning on the "outside" at Cabrillo here in SoCal.     

Finally the question -- I did not spring for the Cobra Marine MR HH90 radio.  It's $54.  That seems like a reasonable price.  It's got a switchable 1/2 or 2 watt output.  Anyone have any opinions on that radio?

ps -- last week I did some fishing out of Santa Cruz.  Didn't do any catching, but still had a great time and met up with a few local fishermen from NCKA who were really nice.

Dave :)

I'm 50/50 on having to work tomorrow,,, but if I don't I'll see ya there.  Forecast doesn't look the most promising, but definitely worth a check.  Cheers, Adrien.

The current forecast calls for SW wind becoming south - I doubt that it'll turn into much, but you might not want to get all the way up north just to have the wind against you.  Either way, it sounds like it's going to be a great day OTW. 

Might see you up there.  If the crew and I end up at Trinidad I think we'll launch very early.   :)

Swell ~6'+: staying behind head
Maybe catch a fish or two as well- Chris
