    The Coastal Conservation Association of California along with Dana Landing, Hobie Kayaks, Master/Rody, Fastlane Kayaks and Hookup Baits sponsored a Fun tournament in Mission Bay yesterday...It was a fishing industry invitational tourney to thank some of our sponsors and it was really enjoyed by all.

    This event was a different format from most other tourneys. We could only use stock out of the box Mity Might rods and reels spooled with the supplied mono. These set-ups and some extras were donated by Pat at Master/Rody.

    Each participant was also given a set of 9 Hookup Baits in 3 sizes from 1/16oz. to 1/4oz. along with a small bottle of scent donated by Chad and JoJo at Hookup Baits. That was it...no other terminal tackle or gear allowed...

    Some of the line needed a little coaxing to get it to stop the slinky effect…which the Hobie Googans said would be good to get the bait to bounce on the bottom…LOL…!

    The team from Hobie brought down a trailer full of fully rigged kayaks and Ron at Fastlane provided a bunch of Pro Anglers too. Many of the tourney participants only had to show up with their license and sunglasses... LOL!
    It was kind of weird to get ready for a tournament without prepping any fishing gear…

    There were 9 teams in the Invitational.

    The Hobie Googans, Master/Mity Might Mafia, CCA Cedros Compadres, Hookup Baits Holigans, Spotty Illuminati, “Really”…Salty Crew, Let’s Talk Hookup Radio Renagades, Sandy Eggo Anglers, and a last minute team from Dana Landing.

    Debbie Patanude from the SD Anglers brought a few boxes of the breakfast of champions…

    Steve Pinard from Dana Landing and a big supporter of CCA CAL, put some
    Tri-Tip on the Traeger grill that morning and by 1 pm we were having spicy tuna (Bonito) and poke (Bonito) as appetizers with some great Tri-Tip sandwiches and potato salad for lunch.
    And desert was...as usual... Debbie Lane's delicious Chocolate chip cookies...! Thanks Debbie and Ron...

    We used the iAngler app for another easy smart phone CPR (catch, photo, release) tourney with three categories...biggest bass...biggest "other fish" (no rays or sharks)...and a team division with the teams three longest fish counting as a total. Sondra Mote was our judge at the computer and she did an outstanding job with so many fish being submitted.

    You can go to the iAngler Tourney site to see the leaderboard and the results. It's a really cool system and I'm looking forward to using it again at the next 4 Battle of the Bays Tourneys. Watching the leaderboard develop during the day was another fun aspect of using the iAngler app.

    Team Hookup won the Team division and took home the Golden Rod award.

    …and the Hobie Googans were third...

    ...although the Hobie guys were winning most of the day until the very last hour when Chad caught two short Cuda and took over 1st place for team Hookup Baits.

    As usual... Wayne Kotow our CCA CAL executive director did a great job of coordinating the event and pulled together a few volunteers to help... THANKS to all of you... especially those from the San Diego Anglers club....THANKS for your time and dedication to the sport and CCA CAL!

    Pat Schlauch at Master/Rody has donated a stock of these Mity Might setups to CCA CAL for future events...this tourney was just a test and it was a home run…we’re looking forward to participating in some more of these fun tourneys with our members and our sponsors this next year.
