About time to post this here I guess.


The Sunset Bay Angler Of The Day Kayak Fishing Challenge is an annual human powered kayak only fishing competition held on the ocean near Coos Bay Oregon. This year's 14th annual tournament is set for Saturday, August 10th, 2024.

Stephen Hatler has reserved the Bastendorff County Park group site campground. I'm not sure there's any campsites left, but let Steve know if you're interested in camping. Arriving Friday the 9th and leaving Sunday the 11th. Maybe Tuesday the 13th if at least 10 commit.

SBAOTD 2024 Rules:
We have a perfect safety record and want to keep it that way.

• Pre-registration is required to compete. All participants must have registered with the event coordinators, signed the liability waiver and receive a poker chip to participate. The entry fee is $35. The first 35 participants who sign up will receive a Captains bag. The registration cut-off will be for 50 competitors or at a date determined by the event coordinators. Contact Erik at browneyesvictim@yahoo.com to pay your entry fee to Erik's PayPal. Use PayPal "Friends & Family" mode when making payment. Alternative payment method can be arranged by emailing Erik at browneyesvictim@yahoo.com.
• Only human powered kayaks will be allowed to compete.
• Compliance with all applicable State and Federal regulations is mandatory.
• Proper immersion gear and flying a safety flag are mandatory. Competitors must wear a Coast Guard approved PFD while on water.
• Radio communication is required to participate. If you don't have a radio, fish with a buddy who does. Marine VHF Channel 69 is the designated communication channel for the event and will be monitored by event staff ashore should an emergency arise.
• Minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult/guardian while on the water.
• Stay within the tournament boundaries. The launch site is at Sunset Bay State Park. The fishing area is from Baltimore Rock to the north down to the south end of Simpson Reef.

All entries must be measured to qualify. You must check-in even if you are not measuring any fish. Be on time. Don't make us call the Coast Guard to search for you! All competitors will be liable for any costs incurred for their search, rescue and/or resultant medical care.
• Point-based competition with points per inch values assigned to each species. Only the largest fish of each designated species will be counted. Bring your largest fish of each species for official measurement when you check in. The Angler with the most points wins.

I’m excited about this! It would be way cooler if I still had the freedom to take a week or two off work to camp, pick summer chanterelles, spend time nailing chinook at gold beach, and pre fishing for the tournament 🤣
I’m excited to come for the weekend though
