Change in Forum Security Settings

March 26th, 2012


In an effort to tighten security, the Coastside BOD has enacted a change to the forums registration process.

Moving forward, users will now be now required to fill in key fields in their profiles:
1) The name of our sport (this has always been a requirement during initial registration)
2) Your name
3) Your location

All new users are now required to fill in the above. For existing users, you have 30 days to make these changes and update your profiles. We will notify you after April 1st if those changes are not made and ask that you do please do so.

How do you do this?
For New Users: A window to enter required information will pop up for the three fields requiring entry.

Existing Users: Please go to the top right corner of the screen, select the [Settings] option. On the next screen, midway on the left side you will find under “My Settings”, an option to [Edit Profile]. Select and make the updates on the screen that comes up. If you entered the “our sport” question at initial registration, you may not see a field for this. Name and location will be the only ones available for entry. Update those.

Coastside Trip with Baja Pirates April 2012

February 26th, 2012

Here is an offer too good to refuse from Baja Pirates.  A Coastside informal derby down in Baja!

Chime in on this forum page La Paz Trip if you can join us or have any questions.

Hi Rick,

We had talked about a Coastside fishing trip in April toLa Paz. I have had several Coastsiders asking about this at theSacramentoshow so I thought I would drop you a line. A good time in April, Moon phase and all would be April 18th thru the 22nd. This is a Wednesday thru Sunday deal, fishing 3 days, 2 people per room and boat. Pricing covers boat,license,hotel, breakfast on fishing days, lunch, water and soda on the boat, vacuumn packing and freezing, free use of our tackle(Avet reels/ugly sticks) and daily transportation to and from town. Dinners, bait and tips are extra

2012 Price for the package is $850.00. If we get more than 8 I’ll cut the price to $800 and throw in a full on pig luau on the beach for the last night.

Now flights. We handle those as well. Normally we fly our Northern California Customers to Los Cabos and then transport them toLa Pazvia 12 person vans. This is about a 2 hour drive each way. Normal van ride cost is $65 per person round trip. These are private vans so you can stop for Beer, etc.

I checked on direct flights today and they are around $530 SFO to Cabo on those specific dates. Flights are beginning to go up so the earlier we book the better the prices are.Alaskais the big carrier flying to and fromCSAto Los Cabos.

Let me know if this will work for you guys!

All the best,

Eric Lundahl
Baja Pirates ofLa Paz

Special Kids Division (under 16) – Free Entry!

The goal of the Kids Division is to teach children that fishing can be funClick photo to enlarge! and that it is also fun and good to release fish. Kids entry is FREE and all they have to do to be entered into the Kid’s Division drawing is to catch and release any fish (any species, any size). We will draw names from a hat full of all the kids’ names that released a fish for the prizes.

With the help from sponsors (including Coastside Fishing Club) there will be enough prizes so that every kid goes home with something! Last year we had 56 kids entered and the goal this year is to have 80 kids registered.
