 "A venturesome minority will always be eager to get off on their own,
and no obstacle should be placed in their path;
let them take risk, for God sake, let them get lost, sun burnt, stranded, drowned,
eaten by bears, buried alive under avalanches -
that is the right and privilege of any free American."
--Edward Abbey--

"Adventure is just bad planning."

Yes, I'm still alive, and yes I am still having the Sunset Bay Angler Of The Day Kayak Fishing Challenge!

This year will be a throw back to the early days since I didn't get off my ass soon enough and gather as many sponsors as before. A full time plus job really puts a damper on things like fishing, or planning a fishing tournament... The top spots will still pay pretty good!

So join us on August 22nd, 2015 at Sunset Bay in Coos Bay, OR for the 6th installment of the Sunset Bay AOTD tourny. There will be prizes, money, food and most importantly, a lot of fun!

You can sign up the morning of the tourny at the launch or come by my house on Friday evening and do it. If you want to send a personal payment to my paypal, that is ok too. My paypal is r.marcum@charter.net

For anyone that hasn't ever been, Sunset Bay is a newbie friendly launch...Well usually, except when I have my tourny... ;) But seriously this is a great area for newbies and old salts alike, so if your new or never been on the big blue, you should really check it out!

I am excited this year because Dana "yaksurf" has graciously offered to help do the dirty work so I can actually fish it this year..Stoked!

Check out the facebook page for more info also.


Hope to see a bunch of you there!

30 Jun 2015 - 2015 Humpy Kayak Classic

For the 2015 Humpy Kayak Classic
Use the Paypal Link Below to make your payment for the Tournament.
Use Waiver Link Below to fill out/sign and mail your waivers or you can email to dino@northwestkayakanglers.com Waivers must be received by Aug. 6th or brought to the Check-In Station on the beach at Dash Point State Park on the tournament day prior to launching/fishing. Tournament fees must also be paid prior to launching/fishing. Waiver link is at the bottom of this page.


Looking forward to this year, when the temperatures start to warm a little and the weather settles, the first thing I always think of is my home fishing grounds I'll go back to. Just like last year, they're gonna be fun and they will produce, but even more exciting are the road trips and new adventures that lie ahead. Whether it's the Oregon Rockfish Classic or just a weekend excursion to the coast, the way to stay for a lot of us is to camp....

A video review is worth a thousand words!

There are many ways to catch Spring Chinook in Portland’s waterways. Many big fish are taken locally using various techniques
such as drifting eggs, trolling cut plug herring, Quick Fish, Flat Fish and Salmon Spinners.  However, my personal favorite and
most deadly technique is using Prawn Spinners. They are  deadly for much of the springtime run, and their efficiency in taking
large salmon, increases as spring passes through.

The first time I saw this little grey box in a store I thought it looked interesting but just couldn’t imagine good video coming
from a tiny little camera. And then it didn't have a LCD screen? Deal breaker I thought. That was a few years ago and since
then GoPro has really made some great improvements.  I got to meet one of their representatives and when she handed me
the camera I was sure it was going to be a little gimmicky thing that really wouldn’t measure up to what we as kayak
fishermen want in a camera. Boy was I wrong!

The Rig
The job of this rig is to get your bait down to where the salmon are and allow your herring to spin freely.

Kayak trolling can be a real drag….  No, not that kind of drag.  Rather, the kind of drag that makes you wish you had a rudder and
outdrive.  While 6oz of weight and a spinning herring
are manageable, the addition of a flasher or dodger can easily prove to be too much.  Enter the KoneZone flasher.  With its slow roll and
reduced drag, the KoneZone flasher is perfectly
suited to kayak trolling.
