I was fortunate enough to be introduced to sailing before I can even remember, and some of my first memories are sailing a small cat boat my Dad built.

I've sailed the Great Lakes, small lakes in Illinois, many of NorCals lakes competitively in  the Santana 20 club, and the Pacific off SoCal.  Some of the best trips were sailing from San Diego to Catalina Island and spending the week onboard.

While I was in college a girl I worked with lived on a sailboat in the harbor, didn't sail it, just lived on it - I figured at some point I'd do the same, but have not, yet. Marriage (the other thing you don't want to own, lol, joking) and kids got in the way.

A few years ago, I started looking at auction boats in San Diego, thinking, that might not be a bad way to setup a vacation home, but then covid happened, and we ended up getting a travel trailer.

Wife doesn't mind sailing, but not a huge fan - so the thought of retiring to a sailboat doesn't fly with her.

I couldn't tell if you have a hobie Cat or a AI Tri.  Both are fun, the old school Hobie Cats are a blast on the water.  A friend had a prindle, and we'd sail it out of Mission Bay, under the bridge (had to fill the sail with wind and counter balance the boat to get the mast out without hitting the bridge), then we'd sail down around Point Loma and have the Navy helicopters chase us around.  Good times.

I still have a Zuma (small 14' boat) in the backyard, unfortunately, Sacto is terrible for sailing, in the summer the lakes will with motor boats and no wind.  We get about 2 hours a day, in the late afternoon/evening when the Delta Breezes come in, not a strong wind, but enough to sail on.

good luck with the Hobie.

Sailboats are one of the ‘Three Things’: horses, sailboats, and swimming pools. These are the Three Things you do NOT want to own, ever. You want to live next to neighbors that owns them.

I think you left one out :)

I'm in! thanks for doing this again.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Softbaits for bay hali

I always say there are only two colors in swimbaits, light and dark.

I've heard similar before, in fact one guide suggests only white - colors catch fisherman, not fish :)

White 5” swim bait in a 4oz head has served me well! 

you know, I've been thinking about that - I know folks use artificial (Lucky Craft) in place of herring/anchovy with some luck, but seems soft baits, on a 4 or larger head would work as well.
