Ocean anglers get back to sea for two calm days before wind returned on Friday
After almost two weeks of windy weather and high seas shut down most ocean fishing on the North Coast, there was finally a break in the weather this week, allowing ocean anglers to get back out on the rockcod and salmon.
For over two decades, Crescent City native Buck Pierce has had a helmet on his head as he prepares for the upcoming football season, but 2014 is a year of change for the former Canadian Football League quarterback.

It’s a common occurrence to have the wind and resulting high seas put summer ocean fishing on hold for a few days, but this is ridiculous.
High winds have kept most of the North Coast angling community from fishing the ocean since last week and gale conditions are expected to continue across much of the northwest California coastal waters through the middle of next week.
It’s the longest stretch of windy weather that many anglers have seen in years.
Warrior fans from this era have really enjoyed following the football career of Warrior graduate Cody Hoffman, who recently graduated from BYU after an outstanding college football career then signed with the Washington Redskins.
As a very longtime Warrior fan, when I hear the Hoffman name I fondly look back at 1946 Warrior graduate Teddy Hoffman. Teddy was Cody’s grandfather and was an outstanding four-sport athlete as a Warrior.
