Rye Phillips, a Brookings-based charter boat captain, helped a client catch a 482-pound halibut last week in Alaska, where Phillips guides in the summer.  The halibut would count as a world record with the International Game Fish Association had it not been shot and harpooned.

Meanwhile, much smaller but equally fun-to-catch salmon, rockfish and lingcod are being caught on the North Coast.

Learning from the big kids at Warrior Youth Football Camp

The annual Warrior Youth Football Camp wrapped up on Wednesday after 32 kids between third and eighth grade (with the exception of one 5-year old) spent three days under the tutelage of 21 varsity and junior varsity players.

From the get-go, the player-coaches took charge of the camp.

“(The coaches) organize things and give them an outline of what to do,” said Warrior coach Mike Coopman, who was in charge of the camp. “The player-coaches pretty much took it from there... They drew up their own practice plans and then they impose their own technique, which they have learned at the high school level.”

Slowpitch softball games underway at Pykes Field this week

The slowpitch softball season is back in Crescent City as 12 teams, six each from the men’s upper and lower divisions, played their first regular season games at Pykes Field on Monday.

The upper division has six teams this year while the lower division has 10 teams. There are also 11 co-ed teams signed up this season. The co-ed regular season kicked off Tuesday.


Roller derby's junior division brings families together

Since the inception of the North Coast Roller Derby, Tsunami Sirens head coach Jack “Coach Old Xchool” Gollaher has been the patriarch of NCRD’s most visible roller derby family.

Coach Old Xchool’s daughter Danielle “Ragin’ Reg” Arispe is a founding member and former captain of the Sirens, and her husband Joe “Sloppy Joe” Arispe began helping to coach and eventually practice with the Sirens while skating with a men’s team in Ukiah.

Skating with family is an everyday occurrence for them.

“It isn’t any different than life has always been,” Ragin’ Reg said.

Warrior Memories: 2014 Hall of Fame class filled with stars

This year six former Warriors will be inducted into the Warriors Athletic Hall of Fame. 

Dee Sullivan is a former  teacher and coach who did so much for Del Norte students, especially the girls. She gave girls the chance to develop and demonstrate their athletic skills long before interscholastic sports for girls started. As a student at Eureka she was a world class athlete and qualified for the 1928 Olympics. She taught at Del Norte from 1956 until retirement in 1973.

The Del Norte Golf Course was flooded with 116 golfers, mostly from Del Norte and Redding, for the annual Bill Speer III Memorial Sweepstakes tournament over the weekend.

Golfers competed both individually and as teams in a best-shot format. Local golf enthusiast James Haban shot the lowest score of the tournament, a 7-under par 135, to take home the individual championship by gross score after finishing second last year.

A strong salmon bite is back for the coasts of Crescent City and Brookings, just in time for  throngs of tourists and ex-pat Del Norters back in town for the Fourth of July.

Rockfish and lingcod ocean fishing  has been pretty good, as usual. Other local opportunities to wet a line include trying for surfperch from coastal bluffs or trying for a cutthroat trout in the Smith or Chetco rivers.

King of Clubs: Why don’t you become the first?

During my time working for the Del Norte Triplicate, I have come across numerous businesses with advertising tag lines directed at our youth.

Some say, “Make a difference: be the first in your family to graduate from high school or college;” or, “You can be the first of your family to get a higher  education.” 

These are wonderful messages and probably inspire a young mind to dream. But what if you struggle in school? What if you don’t have that 4.0 GPA?

Reel Deal: Boats out all week as ocean calms

This past week was probably the first time this June where the ocean was calm enough for a full week of fishing, but that doesn’t mean that king salmon were always easy to find out of the ports of Crescent City and Brookings.

King salmon fishing out of Eureka was reportedly off the charts this week, but further up the coast, the salmon bite was more spotty.  Thankfully, the rockfish and lingcod bite is always prime on our rocky coastline.

Warrior Memories: Eckart is a special coach for Warrior girls

As a very avid Warrior fan of all Del Norte High School activities I look forward to the start of the 2014 school year and the many fun things that take place. One fall sport that I don’t get to watch but love to hear about is girls golf.

While many might say I favor football, I am the father of two girls, so girls continue to have a special place in my heart. The Warrior girls golf team is coached by the type of coach that all parents hope for. Allison Eckart is that special person. Allison is an English teacher at the high school.
