Save the whistle buoy

Jim Custis of Brookings played the daily double on Thursday and caught rockfish and Chinook salmon out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The Whistle Buoy desperately needs your help and it needs your help now. Also known as the Whistler and the CR Buoy, it is without a doubt, the single-most relied-upon AtoN (Aids to Navigation) that boaters (commercial, sport fishermen and sailboaters) use to find the entrance to the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Now, the United States Coast Guard is planning on dismantling the Whistler, erased from existence (and the charts) forever.

Chinook action hot in CC

The author caught this large Chinook salmon while trolling a chartreuse-colored Bechhold Bullet and an anchovy in the ocean outside of Del Norte Harbor in Crescent City on Thursday, June 12.

It was another disappointing week for local-area salmon enthusiasts who were craving to be on the water out of the Port of Brookings Harbor, but were beset with gusty northwest winds and sub-par salmon water temperatures again preventing fishermen from crossing the bar and trolling their favorite setups for Chinook salmon. But as the saying goes, when the mountain cannot come to Muhammad, Muhammad must go to the mountain.

So last week, many Brookings anglers who had the foresight to follow that famous old adage, as well as predictions made by the National Weather Service, loaded up their boats and made the trek to Del Norte Harbor on Thursday, a day where mild seas and winds less than 5 mph were predicted to occur.
