Every year, Englund Marine Supply Co. in Crescent City Harbor bestows a rod-and-reel setup to the two anglers who catch the largest lingcod and the largest salmon of the season.

Just two days after the largest lingcod of the season was weighed in at Englund Marine, a 36½-pound ling was brought in by Kelley Thurmond, of Crescent City, on July 13.

The largest salmon caught so far weighed in at 30½ pounds gilled and gutted and was caught by Ted Lowe.

Crescent City ocean fishing

Ocean salmon fishing out of Crescent City has been pretty slow going, according to Keith Richcreek of Pacific West Coast Ocean Fishing Guide Service. There are lots of silver salmon, which cannot be retained, out there but hardly any king salmon to be seen.

Bottom fishing for rockfish and lingcod is almost always consistently good out of Crescent City and this week was no exception.

Training camp for Redskins, Hoffman

DN cross country starts Aug. 18

The Del Norte High School boys and girls cross country teams will begin practice for the 2014 season on Aug. 18 at 3 p.m. on the track.

“If kids aren’t planning on playing a fall sport, we would love to have them give cross country a shot,” said assistant coach George Hartman.

Reel Deal: Englund Marine has new lingcod mark to beat

The largest lingcod caught this season thus far for Crescent City Englund Marine’s rod-and-reel contest was plucked from the Pacific last week by an angler aboard Tally Ho II Sportfishing charter boat.

John Passmore, from Grants Pass, caught the lunker of ling weighing in at 33.5 pounds on July 11, putting him in first place for Englund Marine’s annual contest.

On the ocean, bottom fishing for lingcod and rockfish is as good as ever, but salmon are a bit tougher unless you go to the Klamath River, where fall chinook are starting to show.

Sirens get win over happy Storm City team

The bout was somewhat different for the members of the North Coast Roller Derby who made the trip to Ridgefield, Wash., over the weekend. All the Roller Derby rules were the same, but the atmosphere felt somehow unique for the Tsunami Sirens’ 161-135 victory over the Storm City Roller Girls.

“They were fun,” said blocker Adrianna “Full Metal Jackie” Stefko. “They were super happy to have us. They were a very welcoming and hospitable team.”

Warrior Memories: DN hoops great also made mark in classroom

This is the second of six columns about the 2014 Del Norte Athletic Hall of Fame inductees.

Kim Kellenburg is a 1965 Warrior graduate who excelled on the football field, the basketball court and the baseball fields.

While Kim was good at whatever sport he played, it was on the basketball court where he really left his mark.

The Del Norte Golf Course was packed to the brim on July 5 at a little extra Independence Day celebration for the Second Annual Bob Rice Memorial Golf Tournament.

The tournament attracted over 80 participants, making up 20 teams and spanning three divisions. Each team had four golfers with the exception of one five-player team playing in a scramble format.

“Eighty-one golfers is a lot, especially for Del Norte Golf Course, which is only a nine-hole facility,” said Cris Rice, son of the late Bob Rice. “We were a little bit slow on the golf, but it was definitely a success.”

In keeping with the spirit of the weekend, the divisions were Red, White and Blue.

“I have always seen it as a good way to celebrate the Fourth of July,” said Cris Rice. “My dad was very patriotic, he liked golf and he definitely liked the youth in the community. So we wanted to center around those things, and after the first year we felt really good about it and I think we are still excited after this year.”

King of Clubs: Open Championship showcases honor of game amid changing golf landscape

Today is the first round of the 143rd Open Championship being held in Royal Liverpool Golf Club Merseyside, England. The Open Championship is the oldest golf tournament in the game and  prized by some as the pinnacle of the sport. 

In honor of the Open Championship, I want to use this edition of “King of Clubs” to talk about the history and longevity of the game and its, believe it or not, questionable future.
