Dee Shurtleff and Neil Rodgers of Brookings fished just outside the whistle buoy out of the Port of Brookings-Harbor Wednesday and nailed limits of lingcod and rockfish.
 

The action-packed salmon fishing out of the Port of Brookings-Harbor that has brought anglers 20-minute limits in the past few months has suddenly taken a nose dive, however there have been a half-dozen nice Chinook being filleted every day at the port’s cleaning station.

Most of the kings have been averaging in the 20-pound category, and almost all of the fish have been caught less than 20 feet from the surface.

Sophia Bauer, left, and Ashleigh Strain dispaly some of the trophies they’ve earned racing professional go-karts on dirt tracks around the state.

Sophia Bauer and Ashleigh Strain seem like your typical, American grade schoolers. Both are polite, somewhat shy and soft-spoken — but they have something in common, a specific trait that is atypical of most girls their age. They have developed a case of “lead foot,” that has transformed them into two of the fiercest go-kart drivers in Southern Oregon.

“We call them the ‘Girlz from the Beach’,” said Sophia’s father, Chad, who used to race sprint cars with a group dubbed, “Boyz from the Beach.”

Youth golfer takes 1st in competition

Golfer Lucas Vanderlip, who attends Kalmiopsis Elementary, exhibits the swing form he used to earn four first place ribbons at a recent Drive, Pitch & Putt qualifying event.

When he was barely old enough to remember Lucas Vanderlip, now 7-years-old of Brookings, would hit golf balls against a metal shed and practice putting in the family room at his father Chad’s domicile in Gold Beach.

“One day I was cooking in the kitchen and kinda keeping an eye on him,” Chad Vanderlip said. “Out of the corner of my eye I would hear him swing but wouldn’t hear the bang of the ball against the shed. I went over and watched him and he’s standing there and he opens that blade (of the golf club) and takes a full swing and the ball was just gone. He was hitting the ball over the shed and into a lot where a new house was being built and I said, “Whoa, great shot! Don’t ever do that again. He’s got a knack for it. It came pretty easy to him.”

Lucas has proven his father’s words to be prophetic as he combined technique, talent and mental fortitude to sweep every blue ribbon at the Drive, Chip & Putt qualifying event held on July 14 at Emerald Valley Golf Course in Creswell.

When the going gets tough, the tough go deeper

George Clearwater of Medford caught this 20-pound Chinook while trolling an anchovy outside of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Tuesday.

Soft velvety fog blanketed the ocean outside the Port of Brookings Harbor on Tuesday morning. The sea was as flat as a sheet of liquid mercury, and the wind was quieter than a church mouse. Droplets of Oregon mist glanced upon the faces of three salmon warriors. Their eyes were filled with the hope of salmon dreams to come, but the outcome was yet uncertain.

Straddling a combination of glassy-flat travel lanes and furtive rip currents, colonies of murres could be heard flapping their wings, as their blackened beaks bobbed for baitfish near the California/Oregon border. 54-degree water was omnipresent. More idyllic ocean salmon conditions have never existed.

Had it been any other day in July, it would have been a safe bet that almost every angler would have been experiencing the thrill of a line-peeling, thumb-burning king salmon at the end of his rod.

But being an Oregon State Beaver fan, I know that there is nothing so uncertain as a sure thing.
