Title: Comp this weekend 12-17-17?
Post by: Rob102 on December 12, 2017, 11:46:54 PM
Sunday looks ok for a dive day. So far the wind is not an issue and 4-6’ but no south swell although it might change as the day nears.

If it’s good, how many would want to dive Mendo?

Maybe a Pole spear Ling Cod comp out of Noyo?

Post up if you are interested.

Boats ok unless there are good objections.

No format yet.

I have 3 pole spears. All have rotten rubber and I’m out of that rubber. If you want to tie them up you can borrow mine.

$20 entry fee. If you buy a pole spear from Subsurface Progression and show me the receipt I’ll waive entry fee. Balance of entry fees will purchase a prize for the winner.

I don’t have waivers for you to sign, but on no uncertain terms, you are on your own. You assume the risk and are responsible for your own safety.

Dive time. Pay up at 8am weigh in at 2pm.

Shotgun start.  Fish where you want.

Matt, we will need your scale.

Am I missing anything?

Excellent Matt. Can you bring enough for everyone, please?

Size limit on Ling Cod. Minimum 19 3/4lbs.  :P

What is the minimum size in California?  We can add a few inches to eliminate the snake lings, but I think you guys go shoot fish and the biggest Ling wins. I think it would be great if it were pole spear only, but you guys can shoot anything not being entered with a gun. Any Ling submitted can only be shot with a pole spear.

This is a great opportunity for guys to perfect their stalking technique.

I think pole only is the way to go... no guns on the boat or yak allowed

Ok.

Pole only, no guns.

Since it’s a one fish meet, let’s do the only measurement that matters... Weight only.

Hi guys,
This is a last minute thing, my apologies for any confusion.

I am hosting a pole spear only, big Ling competition.

$20 entry fee.  If you spend $50 (or get a pole spear) at Subsurface Progression I will waive the entry fee.  The money collected will purchase a prize for the winner.

We will meet at 8:30 to 9:00 at Subsurface Progression to sign waivers and to get any gear you might need.

It will be a shotgun start. You can dive wherever you want, by boat, kayak or shore dive.

No use of gps, bottom finder is ok. No bait, no spearguns.

Weigh in at Subsurface Progression at 2pm. Winner will be determined by weight.

Let’s get out there and beat Matt’s 19.5 lb record! 

Get one extra point for bringing in a limit of purple urchin. You can donate Ling Cod if you want to, but you keep the urchin!

Hope to see a lot of you there,
Rob102

Post by: Rob102 on December 14, 2017, 01:34:21 PM
 Slight change in plans guys. The wind is kicking up a little but the waters not too bad. We are going to start things a little differently. I will be at Subsurface by 7:30 AM. As soon as you get there and sign your paperwork You can get in the water. I think an earlier start is better due to the wind and it allows more time for paddling. But I’ll be there at Subsurface for all the people that come in later.

Not sure the weather will calm that much overnight but it is nasty today and the wind is howling.  Probably a good decision to cancel. 

I got some nasty cough the last couple days and have to get over this before I can get back out.
