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.

lol

ok pole spear only ling cod is the target species for this comp and is it length and weight or just weight or just length ? looking forward to this

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.

I am in !
boats allowed ?
what format you have in mind ?

rsvp for one reservation on matt's boat  :D ;D

I also wouldn't turn down a spot on Matt's boat but otherwise I'm down for some kayaking.

Haha I can see a lot of these contests going like this... the few folks with boats are gonna make some friends/enemies.

I probably can't make this weekend, but if I can I'll drive up there just to get in the water and to see you guys stick some pig lings.

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

 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.
