Kayak Fishing U LA-Invitational.

I am going to host a CPR (Catch Photo & RELEASE... as in released "into the water") tournament Sunday Morning after PaddlePalooza. This will be a FREE tournament WITH PRIZES!!!! My hope is to introduce some of you who are not familiar with the CPR format before the IFA starts this year in hopes to bolster the IFA in our area.

All you have to do is sign-up on facebook as a person who “likes” KFU and I’ll notify you with the sign-up when the time comes. We will run the tournament just like the IFA with a token and a Red and Spec aggregate. Hope to see some of you try this great format FOR FREE!!!!

As for rulers you can use any mass produced manufacturers measuring board. 321fish, IFA, Check-It stick, etc.

I am there Choupique. CPR doesn't put dinner on the table but it's still fun to compete.

Sounds like fun. I'll be at PP8. Staying an extra day to fish a free event. You don't have to twist my arm. I'll see if I can extend my stay at Boudreaux's.

<snip>

Herein lies the problem.
I, for one, would be interested in a cpr format. That's what I plan on doing normally, anyway. But the whole facebook thing is a problem.
They have proven themselves time and again to be less than careful with personal information. I'll never sign up for that site. Ever. So, in this instance, I'll be unable to enter. It's a shame that such a worthwhile gathering, free or not, is dependent on one being willing to hand over personal details to an entity proven to be untrustworthy.

Something to consider not requiring for future gatherings.
Just an opinion.

Is the "gator grip" - I think this is what I have from Academy; considered a legal measuring device Choup?

Also, what about the 45 inch big white plastic ruler we got in the captains bags at FNT last year, can we use them?

Choupique, I can't make this, but I really want to fish the first IFA tournament in empire. Any chance we might be able to get together before then for a few pointers on procedure and how to's? I've got a few digital camera's but I'd be a little anxious taking them in the salt water. Is there any suggested camera for these events? Do you keep it in a dry box until fish is caught?

Choupique
03-21-2011, 12:45 PM
otterbox, pelican box, there are even camera specific bags for point and shoot cameras. I use a waterpoof olympus camera. There are several waterproof models out there that are pretty good for the price.

Check ebay for the Dicapac. It is a waterproof case/bag for a camera for pretty cheap. I used one until I bought my new Olympus and it works great.
