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.”

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.”

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.
