Cabezon season opens, salmon in KMZ ports­

Jessica Pearson and Kevin Pearson, both from Redding, California slew the fatted Chinook on Wednesday while fishing with Jim Bithell of Charthouse Sportfishing.

Cabezon aficionados were in seventh heaven last week when the season opened last Tuesday, July 1, with plenty of large cabbies being filleted at the Port of Brookings Harbor’s cleaning station.

I have a lot of cabezon stories, all of which are pretty boring, so one day I swore to myself that I would never tell another cabezon fable again as long as I lived.

Ryan Girard and Tammy Walker are not your average couple. The Gold Beach duo, who co-own Wild Rivers Acupuncture and Massage in Brookings, appear normal enough except for one glaring characteristic. They are the strongest couple in Oregon after they both won their group at the United States Powerlifting Association’s Oregon state championships on June 14 in Newport.

Hirt’s team, the Crabby Crew, improved in its second attempt at the grueling 214-mile course through the Cascade Mountains starting near Applegate Lake and ending at the Curry County Fairgrounds in Gold Beach.


Braided lines for deep salmon

Daniel West of Klamath Falls limited out on some huge black rockfish and caught a few lingcod to boot with a couple of friends while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Last week, the fillet tables at the Port of Brookings Harbor were once again abuzz with the humming of electric fillet knives, as anglers carved up a smorgasbord of briny delights caught out of Davy Jones’ Locker.

Fishermen were whistling a happy tune as a combination of redtail and striped surfperch, black rockfish, lingcod, Chinook salmon and a few coho salmon were being filleted or steaked out.

It has been long said in the sports vernacular that championships are won in the off-season.

The dedication and hard work that athletes put into improving themselves and their team during their off time can be the difference between a championship run or sitting at home during the playoffs the following season.

In its own way, the Brookings-Harbor High School “Beat the Heat” summer basketball tournament is the high school equivalent of a pre-season or spring training.
