hi folks, thanks for the nice board to read about the local fishing expeditions on your kayaks. my wife and i love kayak fishing and i really enjoy freediving from the kayak although til this past year all i had to go in the water was my old boogie board. i have been diving with alain and ron (the folks in the pictures) for a while now and we mainly go to monterey and the north coast depending on seasons that dfg has set upon us.

the first day going out on my own kayak i was hooked because i caught a nice 39 inch halibut in monterey drifting along cannery row in about 50 feet of water. nothing else to say but hooked! all on my little trout fishing pole with only 100 feet of 20lb test line on it. from that day on i look forward to each day i can go out on my kayak . even better is my wife who catches ling cod like mad. she always manages to hook them no matter where we are fishing.

i hope to learn more about fishing from kayaks since i am new to this stuff.

here are some of our local fishing pictures and even one of our guinea pig... i think he's grown some by now though.

have a good day!

Nice Butte John Welcome aboard.

Yes, I agree.  Cuy is damn good.  I ate a couple while at Banos, Ecuador and thought they were the best BBQ meat I've had in a long time.  The meat was juicy, smooth and velvety with a very delicate flavor.  mmmmmmmmmh 

I told my wife I wanted to raise some and she put knew exactly why I wanted them and thus said "No".
