Slam’n Salmon derby set to cast off this week

Fishing enthusiasts from around the globe will be competing at the 11th Annual Slam’n Salmon Ocean Fishing Derby this week at the Port of Brookings-Harbor.

The derby, which has attracted participants from as far away as Switzerland and Austrailia in previous years, is considered the largest fishing derby on the West Coast, with an estimated 600 contestants vying for $16,000 in cash prizes, and the coveted derby ring, which is awarded to the derby winner and is designed and donated by Harbrook Jewlers.


Fresh faces bring new hope

The Lady Bruins work through several drills while practicing Wednesday at BHHS. Head coach Samantha Greenlee hopes a new attitude will help change Lady Bruin fortunes.

Rebuilding a program is never an easy task. One often hears of professional teams rebuilding through a draft or free agency or a college program through recruiting. It can be argued that it is much more difficult to rebuild a program at a public high school, where there is no draft or recruiting from which to pluck top-tier talent. 

That’s exactly the situation in which the Brookings-Harbor High School volleyball team finds themselves. Having won just one Far West League game in the past two seasons combined, and having lost eight seniors from last year’s squad, the Lady Bruins are young and poised to move past previous setbacks.


Crop of talented youngsters attend camp

Athletes of the camp were taught various skills by top level coaches as well as current BHHS volleyball players during three days of practice at Azalea Middle School.

Twenty-four aspiring volleyball stars took to the Azalea Middle School courts Aug. 18-20 to learn from some of the best volleyball coaching minds the Brookings-Harbor area has to offer at the 17th Annual Bruin Volleyball Camp.

“It’s really fun and you learn a lot about volleyball,” said Phoebe Eldridge, a seventh grader at Azalea Middle School who has been attending the camp for the past three years. “The first time I came to the camp I didn’t really know anything about volleyball, but after playing I really like volleyball now.”


Rockfish and lingcod fishing phenomenal

Mary and Bob Ballman from Vancouver, Washington, (left) joined Mark and Cathy Watkins from Eugene for several days last week and caught limits of rockfish (shown) and lingcod plus a few nice Chinook as well.

Salmon anglers, be aware that the ocean coho season south of Humbug Mountain to the Oregon/California border is now closed, so be sure you know the difference between a Chinook and a coho, because some of the coho that are being hooked are now approaching strapping Chinook sizes.

Chinook salmon between 18 and 25 pounds were being caught on a 270-degree heading from the whistle buoy, with anglers dragging their baits close to the bottom in depths ranging from 90 to 120 feet.


Fall Sports Preview: Soccer team eyes third straight title

When your team is the top dog in a league, you have a figurative target painted on your back.

Every team is out to beat you and plays their best game against you. A team is not awarded such reverence overnight; it comes from winning and often dominating a league, season after season. 

It’s bred from accomplishment.


Fall Sports Preview: Camp forges focus, solidarity in Bruin runners

From July 26 through Aug. 1 campers trained for the upcoming cross country season by competing against 68 other athletes in activities that tested their will and forged their solidarity.
