Baytubers Monthly Halibut Tournament - 09/12/21 - Cabrillo Beach - RESULTS

Post by Bellcon »

So we had 8 anglers show up for the latest Baytuber Tourney
Where the hell were you??? :lol:

The players:
1. SandyBeach
2. Theluckypig
3. Roby
4. Caden
5. Gregandrew
6. Grego
7. Paintnfish
8. Bellcon

My story?
I decided to not buy bait (small sardines) and stuck with the green backs for NADA :(
The old Big bait = Big fish thing hasn't worked for me at Cabrillo lately, but one of these days! :mrgreen:

It was great to fish the regular crew again and awesome that we had a couple newbies show up... Hopefully they stick around they both seem like nice guys and showed a lot of potential :mrgreen:

Apparently someone won a big jack pot :evil:
But I never seen the fish so... :roll: Ain't my story to tell :lol:
:mrgreen:

The newbies... took them forever to get ready :lol: they'll get the hang of it

Seriously... (maybe)
It was so cool to see these brothers back in the saddle, its been along time since we have fished together
Hope we get to share the water again sooner than later!

Those are some good-looking Macs, a shame they didn't produce. It looks like a nice day on the water -- Congrats to Grego for breaking the rollover streak with a win!

I was the Weiner!!!!! :lol: $600 Pot :P

I don't have any pics, as I was more focused on making sure my kayak didn't sink and I didn't fall off. I think my seat straps shrunk because it was very hard to get it clipped on. I went with minimal gear just in case something went wrong. Everything worked except my wash down tank that had a leak. It was kind of funny because I had to actually think of what I needed to do to land the fish, rather than it being instinct.

It was a whopper!!! 24.5 lbs.....I mean inches :lol: verified by the DFG statistics volunteer. That place has potential, kelpy places and drop offs like I remembered. I stayed in close to the launch with Ron and fished the shallower waters. I was telling the guys it's been about 6 years since I been on my yak, but I think it has been more like 8 years! I found this post https://baytubers.com/viewtopic.php?f=1 ... it=lifepo4 as I was searching right now because none of the LifePo4 batteries I got from Greg worked, which wasn't a surprise since they hadn't been charged for 8 years. I remember buying them thinking I was going to get back into it, but never did so I got 0 seconds of use out of them. The weirdest thing was my old SLA batteries that hadn't been charged either for 8 years actually worked for at least 4 hours. The 6V died after about 4 hours, but the 12V was still working. Maybe it was the lithium chargers that are broken and not the batteries?

My arms are so sore, but it really felt good to be on the water. My son was not happy at all that I went without him, he started private swim lessons again today after school because he wants to start kayak fishing so bad. I think I may end up being a cabrillo regular because it's a safe place to get him started at 6 years old, so long as I stay in close specially on windy days.

For all of you who participated in the tourneys that led up to the big pot, be happy and proud that the monies went to Tony's mom to help her financially with anything she may need....funeral costs, etc... All of you guys are hopefully putting a smile on her face as she knows what good friends he had surrounded himself with.
