california offshore challenge boats at two harbors

. . . the response for the reschedule date has been amazing!

The California Offshore Challenge has been called ‘The Super Bowl of Calico Bass Fishing’ since its inception in 2009.  The 2016 ‘COC’ will proudly be presented by ‘Bohnhoff Lumber’  with 50 of the most hard core anglers vying for supremacy at the only 2-day island based tournament of it’s kind.  Anglers equipment, endurance and will are all pushed to the limit as this unfolds for 20 hours of fishing and a combined 2-day weight format.  But it’s not all about just the competition. Based out of Two Harbors Catalina and a short channel-hop across the Pacific, you’re a world away from the mainland, and it becomes a true get-away weekend for the competitors. With a fun welcoming party on the beach when you arrive, and just getting re-aquainted with fellow anglers, to hanging out in the Harbor Reef bar for a game of pool, Two Harbors is the perfect venue for this special event. Basic entry fee’s for this event include: 2-nights Cabin accommodations, welcoming BBQ on the beach Friday, light breakfast both mornings of competition, Saturday night dinner at the Harbor Reef restaurant,  mooring cans for your skiff both nights, and angler commemorative gifts from the event. There are limited number of upgrade packages available, so please contact us for pricing and availability.
