Thread: C'mon Kayaks! Anchor Point King Derby

    Default C'mon Kayaks! Anchor Point King Derby

    Kayakers! If there is a derby that a kayak can compete on equal footing with the powerboats in the ocean, this is the one.

    The 21st annual Anchor Point Calcutta King Derby.

    I fished the 17th derby with the "gal next door" and she manages to catch her first king salmon EVER off a kayak during the derby. It also was the first kayak king ever entered into the derby!

    I entered the 18th derby, landed a king. Only to have the derby called due to bad weather that day and I couldn't fish the make up day. Bummer.

    So far, I know of two kings caught off kayaks between Stariski Cr and the southern border of the derby (Dimond Cr?). So the fish are there!

    Here's the king from the 17th derby!

    The video though its 15 minutes long it really shows you how fast a king can tow a kayak. Its also good for a laugh or two as neither of us had any clue really on how to land a king from a kayak.

    The official rules:
