Play the fish trifecta for free fishing weekend

With inclement weather predicted this weekend, you might think about throwing a Pineapple butterfly trap at the Brookings Harbor crab pier like seasoned veteran crabber George Davis did on Thursday.

As of Friday, the National Weather Service is predicting that northwest gale-force winds between 15 and 25 knots will continue hammering the southern Oregon and northern California coast this weekend and well into next week.

Until those winds abate, that pretty much puts the kibosh on salmon, rockfish and lingcod fishing in the ocean; however, it does open the door for a wealth of other fishing opportunities, particularly the fishing trifecta.


Robotics team wins racing event

Members of the Brookings-Harbor High School robotics team pose for a team picture after winning the Power Racing Series event at the Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif. They are the only high school team to ever win the event.

The Brookings-Harbor High School advanced robotics class didn’t know what to expect when they attended last month’s Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif. They were there to enter the Power Racing Series, an event where engineering teams make an electric race car on a $500 budget, using the body of a child’s Power Wheel vehicle. It being their first time ever competing in an event against professionals and being the first high school team to ever enter a car into the series, their event organizers, competitors and spectators weren’t sure what to expect either.


Local sailor to compete in trans-Pacific race

Gary Burton of Brookings stands next to his 1973 Westsail 32 sailboat as he makes preparations for the Singlehanded TransPac race from San Fransisco to Hawaii.

For the past four years, local yachtsman Gary Burton has had a goal to sail his boat more than 2,100 miles across the Pacific Ocean, all for a belt buckle.

Burton will soon depart on the “Elizabeth Ann,” his 1973 Westsail 32 sailboat, en route to San Francisco to compete in the 19th edition of the Singlehanded TransPac Race set to begin on June 28.


Free fishing weekend happening this weekend

ROSEBURG – Oregonians can fish, crab and clam for free during Free Fishing Weekend, June 7-8, when fishing and shellfishing licenses and tags are not required.  Events held around Southern Oregon give families an opportunity to try their hand at landing a trout.


Anglers haul in Chinook despite winds

Dave Marrone of Eureka fished with the author on Monday out of Del Norte Harbor in Crescent City and limited out on four salmon from 20 to 25 pounds.

Announcing how well Oregon ports did last week in salmon fishing on the ocean is not much different than calling horse races at Santa Anita.

*BELLS RINGING* And they’re off!

And it’s Brookings Harbor breaking out of the gate out on top leading by a length with Depoe Bay second on the rail. Newport is showing some speed as well, with Bandon trailing by a nose in fourth. Charging down the home stretch and gaining ground in fifth is Charleston with Garibaldi on the outside sixth.


Both Gold Beach teams suffer playoff losses

Gold Beach pitcher Dustin Carter allowed just two hits while striking out seven in his five innings of work.

Both the Gold Beach High School softball and baseball teams suffered playoff losses on Wednesday, ending their season. 


Track athletes honored at annual banquet

BHHS sprinter Sophie Landau hugs head coach Jim Keys during the BHHS track and field team's annual awards banquet.

The Brookings-Harbor High School track and field team had a season worth remembering. The 55-member squad sent nine athletes to the state championships, earned four top-five state medals, one state champion, two school records broken and 66 names placed on BHHS’ all-time top-20 lists in different events throughout the season. Quite a banner year for a prestigious program.

Brookings-Harbor High School senior Ronnie Manley has been throwing a javelin for approximately three-and-a-half months. The multi-sport athlete didn’t decide to try out for the track team until just before the team’s opening meet on March 18. He is sure glad he did, because now he is the 4A State Champion in the javelin.


Great showing for area track athletes at state meet

Several Brookings-Harbor and Gold Beach track and field athletes competed at last weekend’s OSAA State Championship meet at Hayward Field located at the University of Oregon.
