    Sounds good I tried for years to have 3 places paid as I was coming in 2nd quite a few times. Also, a yak category will sure get those brave souls out there.

    I know of at least 3 kayakers I have spoken with who should make it. One of the issues is we have our own little get together at the end of May. Still this is a great derby! Lots of fun. Glad it didnt go the way of the dodo bird.

    Fished it with a friend in 2011 off a kayak and my friend entered the first ever kayak caught king. In 2012, I entered the derby. managed to land a king only to learn later they called the derby off for bad weather. Bummer.

    I'm hoping our final tally is 7 to 10 kayakers! We have full intentions of winning this derby! lol.

    So far out of about 4 kayakers trying, we've managed two kings in the derby area and the chickens are starting to show as well. We are ready!!!!

    just bringing this back up, the derby is this Saturday May 16th!
    Cardinal was going to post all the info here, but he put it in the kayaking forum instead.
    anyway, weather is looking good and there are certainly some fish around!

    just saw that!!! though NOT terrible, sure is a lot more fun when the water is flat. I have seen you out in worse conditions!!!
    heck, we had 4 or 5 waves swallow the motors and a break into the boat last weekend!!! That was not kayak weather for sure!
    Only wish I had a vidio of a 20# king screaming away only to fly out of the top of a wave and find himself 6-7 feet in the air!!
    With an easterly blowing on sunday i think we will be safe, if they do decide to cancel on Saturday.
    see ya there!!!

    Unfortunately no. But we did pretty well for ourselves. Only three kayaks entered. Weather forecast scared folks away. Amazing thing was we launched into flat calm waters not knowing the derby was delayed two hours due to the powerboats being unable to launch off the tractors. +1 for the kayaks! It was a king derby but the three kayaks from what I can tell entered two kings. Also had two limits of halibut and a sea run dolly.

    The chickens were everywhere. In an hour I must have caught 5 and saw a few more follow my bait to the top.

    Here's a video of my fish. Not very good. Camera pointed the wrong way. I'll let the other posts there stuff.
    Oh, another kayak came late and was not entered into the derby. Landed four kings in a an hour. Kept two with a proxy. Fishing is great!

    We had a blast!!! Thanks Anchor Point!!!

    Friends posted this
    53 Fish called in, 51 were weighed at the launch.
    Top fish was over 42#, and top boat was paid about $3200.
    Second largest fish was around 33#, but hadnt entered the side bet.
    Second place side bet winning fish was 28#, won roughly $600
    Average Fish was 18.50 lbs, and the winning average fish was 18.55# and this side bet earned $300.
    On the order of $6000 was the total gross proceeds, so the remainder after prizes went to the Chamber and youth fishing, etc.
    -- > I Only know of three non-power boats, one SUP and our two Kayaks, which delivered 2 fish to the weigh-in. Probably average for success per rod, but we didnt hit the big money fish, but probably had more fun all the same!

    Here's mine off my SUP. Rudy was able to film mine and there's some pretty neat underwater footage. All in all a great day. I'll try figure out how to post the video later otherwise Rudy you can post it.

    I might have to look into photo bucket, cause I can no longer transfer pictures, but what a fantastic day it was!
    Good to see you yakers out there!
    We ended up with 15 to the boat and lost multiple fish, our biggest was 23.4.
    the 53 fish for sure set a new record in the 14-15 years that i have been fishing it anyway!
    will try to figure out the pic thing and post later!


    tight lines!
