Bottomfishing superb, Halibut season opens

There is nothing more beautiful than the brilliant coloration of a freshly-caught vermilion rockfish as shown by Soon Ae Phillips of Brookings on a recent trip the author took with her and her husband last week aboard the High Hopes II out of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

Fishing for rockfish and lingcod continued to thrill Brookings-area anglers last week as flat-calm ocean conditions beckoned anglers to throw their favorite rockfish and lingcod lures. Most people were catching their rockfish and lings anywhere from Bird Island uphill toward Mack Arch, however the bottom grabbers were caught downhill toward Akin Point as well.

Limits were common, with a plethora of rockfish being caught. I had the opportunity of fishing aboard the High Hopes II on Wednesday, and the three of us caught a wide variety of rockfish species, including canary rockfish, vermilion rockfish, black rockfish, and even one large yellowtail rockfish.

Bruins finish 4th, miss qualifying for state

Lancer sweep leaves Bruins in 3rd

Bruin David Freeman slides in safely at third base during a 10-3 loss in game one of a doubleheader against South Umpqua on Friday at BHHS. The loss ended the Bruins hopes of a 2nd-place finish in the Far West League.

Entering Tuesday’s home-finale doubleheader against the South Umpqua Lancers, the scenario for the Brookings-Harbor Bruins was a simple one to follow.

The Bruins, down two games in the standing to the Lancers, needed to sweep the twin bill to claim the No. 2 slot in the Far West League and secure a home game during the play-in round.

A loss meant the Bruins could do no better than 3rd-place.


Lady Panthers win with a walk-off, again

The never-say-die attitude of the Gold Beach High School softball team served them well once again.

Less that a week after earning a thrilling, extra-inning, walk-off victory over Waldport, Lady Panthers second baseman Brandy Allen belted a bases loaded single to score the tying and winning runs in a nail-biting, 7-6, victory over Myrtle Point on Tuesday at Buffington Park.


May is surfperch month

Roy Liles, left, and Jason Cottingham, both from Brookings, were surf fishing a Brookings-area beach last week when they caught some very large redtail surfperch on small pieces of raw shrimp. May is traditionally a great month for surfperch angling in the Brookings area.

May is the month when the big, female striped surfperch and redtail surfperch start putting on the feedbag and begin putting on some serious poundage. It is also the month when you will likely be catching the larger of the surfperch.

Redtail surfperch are one of the largest species of surfperches and can attain sizes up to four pounds, so the following statement will knock your socks off.

The standing International Game Fish Association (IGFA) world record redtail surfperch weighs 1-pound 4-ounces and was caught by Steven M. Wozniak on Aug. 3, 2013 on a beach near Orick, California.

Ladies and gentlemen, I know for a fact that I’ve seen larger redtail surfperch caught in Oregon on numerous occasions. The aforementioned fish is a world record that is just begging to be broken.
