Dozens of booths compete for the title of Best Oysters of 2012 .

Semi-automatic constitutional fun for kiddos young & old: Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse—“The CDC, CNN and Fox News can’t all be wrong.”

Sushi, anyone?

Don’t like oysters? How about organic Humboldt hot dogs?

Fish Boy

 Today’s take aboard the Mighty Toad—two good chinook salmon, about 11 and 17 lbs . . .

 . . . caught within 15 minutes of each other, on the 58' line 4 miles south of Trinidad, in 147 feet of water.
The First Fish of 2012, caught Saturday on Toad’s first trip, a sweet 12-pounder.
