Launch was at 5:35am on the protected side of Trinidad Head. If you signed up before 7/01/17, you qualified as an “Early Bird” and you got a 20 minute head start! That means the Early Birds got to launch at 5:15am. Everyone had to be back on dry land no later than 2:00pm.

The weather conditions were EPIC! No fog, no wind, and swells were very manageable. However, the flies were in full attack mode. Some people protected themselves with gloves, hats & buffs.

The bite was a little slow overall, but that didn’t stop people from bringing in lots of fish. Lots of Monster Blacks and there were more Cabezon’s harvested thank Lings. That was a little unusual.

Biggest Fish Contest:

Lingcod: 32″ – Team Fishizzle

Cabezon: 25″ – Team Big Hammer

Vermillion: 22.5″ Team Fishizzle

Greenling: 16.5″ Team Cast-Our-Baiters

Black Rockfish: 21.5″ Tied Robert Bray & Dylan Taupe

Other Rockfish: This was a Copper at 19.5″ Team Screamin Reels

Barbie Pole Challenge:

To qualify you need a kids Barbie Pole, however, Batman, Superman, ToyStoy poles all qualify as well. You are allowed to upgrade the line and use duct tape where needed. No other enhancements are allowed. You also need to film the hookup, reel in, and measuring (without a break in the film) in order to qualify. The only exception is if you are only taking out Barbie Poles (no other adult rods), then you can take a picture of what you catch and turn that in.

Robert Brey won the Barbie Pole Challenge with an 18.5″ Black Rockfish – Prize $100 Gift Card to Pacific Outfitters
