Ah -- thanks for that reminder -- on the hookups.  I'm looking forward to that trip.  I may book a ride with Phil Glenn on Shellback one day.

Fishing - Report / Cabrillo 5-28 success!
« Last post by DaveTheSynthGuy on May 29, 2011, 01:18:40 am »
Had a great time at Cabrillo on the inside this afternoon in spite of the wind.   I caught my first legal halibut today  ;D (released), a short wsb (released), and a 17" spotted bay bass which I kept and ate for dinner.  I was OTW at 3:30 and fished until sundown.

The halibut was  22" and a smidge but I didn't feel  secure with my measurement on my homemade board slopping around in the wind and waves so figured it was better to release the fish.   I was gentle with it and did all I could to take care of it.

I caught all the fish on plastic swim baits with 1.5 ounce leadhead.    Basically I just put in at the boat ramp, drifted out towards the green buoy, pedaled back against the wind -- repeat.  I got bit every time and had several fish on that I didn't manage to land. I got the short wsb near the green buoy and I got the spotted bay bass right up next to the jetty in the kelp near the entrance to the marina.

This odd story, there was a little skunk wandering around at the tip end of the jetty by the boat ramp.  I pedaled over to take his picture and he decided to go swimming!  He started swimming right towards me and I decided it was time to pedal away!  :( I may have been chased by a skunk, but I certainly wasn't skunked.  What a great day, the the bas was quite tasty for dinner!

btw == I'm coming up to Eureka with my hobie on June 13-17.  I hope to fish Trinidad harbor and .. .. ??    :)

I like that idea, and I don't have any idea either about how hard it may be to do.   :)

If you build it, they will come!   ;D

I'm gonna start this off by saying I dont know much about computers or the internet.  So this is just a suggestion that I think would be cool, but I have no idea how difficult it is to get up and running or if its even an option.  I think picture tagging, like they have in facebook would be cool.  So when you click a picture someone posts, and you move your mouse pointer over the people in the picture you can see who's who.  So when you see someone in person, you already know their name.  So when you see me on the beach you can say, "Oh, thats that weirdo Shellback."  Just a thought.  Might be super tough or easy to do for all I know, which is why I thought I would throw it out there!  Take care eveyone!

Hey there everyone!  My name is Jeff and I just wanted to take a second to throw out there a brief introduction.  I've been kayak fishing and diving for just under a year now and have a full on case of the Madness.  I've been shore diving for Abalone for about 5 years now and absolutly love getting under the water!  The addition of a T15 about a year ago has been a game changer in my Ab diving and spearfishing.  I've been on NCKA for a while now, so if you recognize the "handle", yes, its the same guy.  I'm looking forward to getting back up to the lost coast, I was there for GS5 and had a blast!  I'm here to learn and spread what knowledge I have aquired.  I'm looking forward to meeting all of you out there!  See ya around!

Wind/Wind Waves still look good for tomorrow,,, but the swell is super fun right now,,, so if I don't surf, I'll be looking for y'all.  What time you meeting @ the launch?  With the late morning high tide, I might even fish and then surf later...
