Lady Bruins split at Central Oregon tourney

Lady Bruins pitchers Hailee Murray (left) and Courtney Kay are establishing themselves as the aces of a young BHHS pitching staff.

Four games in two days is a daunting task — even for a young team looking to gain varsity experience. 

The Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins softball team traveled to Bend to play in the Central Oregon Tournament, where they were tasked with playing doubleheaders on consecutive days.

Several Curry County track and field athletes gave impressive performances at Tuesday’s Brookings-Harbor Icebreaker meet, competing against teams from Del Norte, Rogue River, Illinois Valley and Castle Rock Charter.


Anglers hauling in huge lingcod and surfperch

Dale Patrick of Harbor went fishing with a friend on Tuesday and put the royal hurtin’ on some mighty big black rockfish and hefty lingasaurs while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

When I moved to Brookings 34 years ago from southern California, the biggest surfperch I had caught were the ubiquitous barred surfperch.

Then I took a walk on the beach and saw what appeared to be humongous barred surfperch with red-tinged fins, the formidable redtail surfperch, and I instantly became an Oregon surfperch addict.

They go by many names. Some call them redtail surfperch while others call them pinkfin surfperch. But call them whatever you want, for some reason they have been schooling up in copious quantities in Gold Beach area beaches, and some of them have been monsters.


Lady Bruins make big strides after big loss

After suffering an eye opening 14-0 defeat at the hands of the Phoenix Pirates on Wednesday, the Brookings-Harbor High School Lady Bruins softball team rebounded with a 5-2 win over McKinleyville (California) on Friday.


Bruins drop two straight in CA

The Brookings-Harbor Bruins baseball team lost two games on Thursday at Arcata High School, dropping their early season record to 1-2.

The Bruins fell in the first game, 10-2 against the Fortuna Huskies and lost the second game by a 9-2 final to Arcata.


Bruins sweep Panthers in opener

Brookings-Harbor pitcher Christian Edwards throws out Gold Beach's Morgan Ryan during the Bruins 5-2 win over the Panthers on Tuesday at BHHS.

For fans of Curry County hardball, Tuesday was more than just a day to wear green.

Tuesday marked the beginning of the spring sports season, with the Gold Beach Panthers and Brookings-Harbor Bruins facing off on both the baseball and softball diamonds.


Track season opens with annual Icebreaker

It was a perfect day for the beginning of track season — sunny and clear, and a crowd full of supportive spectators. Brookings-Harbor High School hosted their “Icebreaker” meet, welcoming six other teams from Oregon and California to open the season.


County’s all stars shine

Some of the southern Oregon coast’s best basketballers competed at the Bay Area Sportsman’s Association Big Mike South Coast All Star Game on Sunday at Marshfield High School, and Curry County athletes shined bright.


Fish, fish and more fish

Tom Nusbaum of Grants Pass holds a freshly-gaffed lingcod he caught on a herring while fishing with Captain Jim Bithell from Charthouse Sportfishing on Sunday out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

It’s one thing to see limits of lingcod getting filleted every day at the Port of Brookings Harbor cleaning station.  It’s another to experience it directly, live, one-on-one with people catching them like they were bluegill in a lake. But that’s exactly what happened to me last Sunday when I fished with captain Jim Bithell of Charthouse Sportfishing.

The most common phrase uttered that day was, “Not another lingcod!”

Jim had a couple of clients on board, neither of whom had ever caught a lingcod. All I can say is when inexperienced fishermen can catch lings to the equivalent of shooting goldfish in a barrel, fishing has definitely been taken to the ultimate level.
