Norcal Hunters lets show some of those southern boys how we hunt up in here in Norcal! The lack of great vis and rougher water makes our backyard more rich in fish than anywhere in Cali. Last fall my brother shot a 27 pound ling in 15 feet of water and the week before I shot two  over fifteen pounds in under 10. It is all about luck and a little skill making it possible for anyone to win this comp, hope this motivates some of you to sign up and help out the RFA and SCAN.

You pick up another donation for SCAN.  I'll add link to the NCSD group list and see if we can get any additional action.

Thanks

I believe Jason's exact words were, " Man, after that day, I'm totally ruined" -I don't think that, but it's pretty hard to beat that one!! way to go guys
if you kill it, you eat it.... don't be a dick

Yeah, but that day we got out of the water and Jason had 2 20 pounders.  I'll never forget the looks from the guys on the beach.

Jason and I are so stoked, we ended up with some awesome prizes thanks to Owens hard work on this event. The way it worked was just like the triton X where 1st place picks first and so on in order. Well Jason ended up with a brand new banks board and to my surprise I got a Brand new Omer 7mm open cell free-dive suit for taking 3rd place nice !!! I highly suggest you all consider this comp next year.
