WCW 2015 The Three Kings

Same rules apply to 2015!

The 3 Kings


yellowtail, white seabass and California halibut

Free to enter and a very simple format this year, catch the biggest fish and reign as the king for as long as you have the biggest within the species submitted. There will be custom trophy steins handed out for the biggest yellowtail, white seabass and halibut caught in 2015. Awards and get together to be determined, taking place in January 2016.

All fish must be hooked, fought and landed from a kayak and brought to shore without any physical assistance.

To submit your catch it must be heavier in weight by 1 pound or more than the previous reining leader. We are rounding down weights, so a 40.8# fish is submitted as forty and a fish will need to weigh 41# or over to knock them off the podium.

Each anglerís submission must be accompanied by one photo of the angler with the fish, preferably on the kayak.

In addition, for each fish submitted, the weight needs to be supported by photo of the fish on a measuring tape showing its total length in inches. The fish must be weighed on an accurate scale. Reported fish weight will be compared to length to verify accuracy. As an alternative, the angler may submit the fish with weight obtained from the certified fish weigh-in station - certified weigh-in stations (Dana Landing, Fisherman's Landing, possibly your local tackle shop with certified scale). When submitting a fish with weight obtained from a certified scale, no tape shot picture is required. The weigh master should give you documentation, or just snap a photo of the weight showing on the scale.

Let's get this started!

This starts today January 1st and runs through midnight December 31 2015

There is no time limit other than midnight Dec 31 2014, but I would rather reign as king for a day, a week or month and not hold out only to miss out on my Warhol moment!

there should be a submission date set, something similar to the the previous WCW tournaments:

Competitors are allowed upgradeable submissions monthly with midnight of the last day of the month as a deadline. You can submit your best of 1 of each of the 3 species.

Very different format this year and I like the possibility of toppling the reining king at the buzzer. I also like the fact that someone could hold onto a submission too long and miss out on holding the title for at least a little while. Play it however you like, but I would post em in a timely manner

Under this rule, all mothership fish are ineligible.

I had thought about amending the original wordage to include mother-ships eligibility, but decided to keep things simple and easy to adhere to the guidelines, mothership trips are not eligible submissions.

Hey... I had this thought... it wasn't a deep thought... Not deep at all.

But... I was thinking that there might be a reward of some sort for the biggest fish of each month submitted. No I don't know what that reward would be... but make it something that gives just a little nudge to at least win the "month" competition and then obviously at the end of the year, all of the monthly winners are compared for a yearly winner.

To discourage the "snipers" make it to where anything submitted after November 15th is only in the running for the yearly bragging rights/reward.

So that if you don't win the yearly WCW award, then you can at least have a smaller "monthly" title. Kinda like a second place thing.

Or as my stepdad would say... "First loser award"

What about a category for The Triple Crown? Each person's combined weight on one each of their big 3: yellow, wsb and butt

WCW suggestion

I know keeping track of points is a pain in the ass, but to keep things simple and fun, and keep things going all year, instead of everything happening at January 1, 12:05 am...also to get more people to participate in the WCW. I have a pretty simple idea....

It's probably too late to suggest this but how about a 12 point system, one point per month of the year. One point to the member with the biggest fish for that month. The member with the most points at the end of the year takes it. If a different member wins every month then the biggest fish during the 12 month period wins.

I like this because a single lucky large fish cannot knock everyone out for the year, only for that month. So everybody would have to fish hard all year to try to make a point for that month....The competition would be fun!


I do like the triple crown Idea too, that would be awesome.

Ken one of our neighbors at Las Encantadas was telling about two WSB caught from yaks over the last week in the 30-35 lb class. This was on the evening of 31st of December.

The following morning, 1 Jan, 2015 at 9:15 am. Loud and clear over channel 68 comes this:

Makobob, Makobob this is Chuck come in. Remember talking with Ken last night? They are here. How big? Over 30!

Fishing the FULL MOON anywhere can be good, Baja can be AWESOME. These fish will be in the neighborhood until March-April and some 50 pounders will be caught. San Felipe, Puertocitos, and Gonzaga will all produce for those who brave the winds and waves. Repalas, Youzoris and IRON all produce. Gentlemen, start your engines! Become an IRON MAN!.
Get a couple guys together, drive down south and Live the dream!
