Never heard of it. What's the elevation?

Only things I might add would be a fly rod (or a spinning rod and casting bubble) and some flies for super early AM and sunset. Hopper patterns sometimes work well in the summer.

Or some live crickets or mealworms.

Both of those sometimes work when nothing else seems to...

Nice work! Thanks for the report.

Been way too long since I pried my focus from salmon and bagged a halibut...

Coho also have a more "trout like" body shape. They have a thicker/wider caudal peduncle than a similarly sized chinook. That can be used as yet another check, as long as you have a little experience looking at (100% confirmed) chinooks.

Catching cohos up in Washington has helped me tell the difference.

If no one fesses up, I bet they wouldn't hesitate to ticket ALL the anglers on board.

Salmon season is insane! Have limited every time I go. Salty Lady and New Rayanne are the two boats I go on.

What's stopping you from chasing them from your kayak?

My skills... I'm new to kayak fishing and no where near ready to tackle the ocean. Next season, I will try, but for now I need to build up my skills.
Ah. Understood.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Launch Spots near SLO or Pismo Beach?
« on: August 01, 2017, 01:27:22 PM »
There are many good launch spots out there. Just down the street from Central Coast Kayaks in Shell Beach you can launch for rockfish and halibut. You can also drive out to the Avila / Port San Luis area and fish the sandy beaches for halibut.

Or drive out to Montana de Oro and launch from Spooners Cove - good rockfishibg out there. Or drive north a little and launch near the Cayucos pier - rockfish and halibut available.

Do it. That thing will catch fish.

I think it would have been very obvious if it were a thresher with that big floppy tail.

I'd guess great white or maybe a salmon shark?

Glad that ended OK, and nice work on that 37" butt!

That Classic Glass rod is actually pretty affordable compared to a lot of high end stuff out there. Less than $100 if I recall correctly. Don't get this one if you plan to use heavy 2-3+ pound lead sinkers - too flexible. Works great with a DD6 diver.

I also use a 7' Medium Ugly Stick Tiger rod. That thing will handle whatever you throw at it, including 2-3+ pound balls if you go that route. (I prefer not to drop lead on the ocean floor. It's not good for the environment, and it's expensive.)
