This is our hometown favorite monthly tournament. No big egos, just a small friendly tournament amongst locals and friends…. with a big cook-out at the end. This is a good way to connect with the local Orange County kayak fishing scene.

Sign-in on the day of the tournament directly at the shop. If you are launching on your own at a different location, please be sure to sign up before heading out.
Format is very simple: Entry fee is $10 with the largest legal fish taking all. No sharks, rays, skate’s, etc. Very simple rules: no sponsors, no raffles, no prizes, no points, NO HASSLE. An optional $5 big bass side pot is offered for those that are going to target bass.
Start time @ 7 A.M. with weigh-in @ 2 P.M. Weigh-in and post tournament pot luck at Pure Watersports. Parking will be available for those early launchers. Gate to launch will open at 6:30 A.M., and will close at 7:30 A.M.
Pure Watersports relocated our business earlier this year and will be testing how the new facility will work for this tournament. Parking is much better, but can still be problematic. Access to the new facility is through the Embarcadero gate off Dana Point Harbor Drive. There is a fee for this access and you will be able to use the commercial launch ramp and parking area. The alternative is to park in the “Employee/Retail” parking lot that is accessed off Golden Lantern in the harbor. Once you launch your kayak, check in at the store which is directly across the water.
Post Tournament Potluck
The owners of Pure Watersports host a potluck after the event with the main course always provided by them. They rely on us to bring drinks, sides and desserts, please no alcohol.
