Howdy NCKA!  Iíve been reading this board off and on for the past several years, and figured it was about time to join.  I grew up on the east coast, and moved out to NorCal about 10 years ago.  I have been fishing my whole life.  Back east it was mostly freshwater for bass, trout, bluegill, and such, with the occasional trip to 1000 islands for walleye and pike.  I bought a SIK soon after moving out here and got a few fish in the Russian River every now and then, but never took it out into the ocean.  I learned quickly that shore fishing the big blue can be frustrating, and good spots are found by putting the time in to find them. I started freediving/spearfishing about 2 years ago, and really have been getting more into it this summer.  Now Iím ready to get out on a SOT yak (as soon as my budget allows) and really get on some fish.   Iím sure Iíll see some of you out there doing the same.    -Mike

Welcome Mike!
The 2 concerns you mentioned below could be easily addressed/shortened by the experts on this forum:
   1. Shore fishing the big blue can be frustrating, and
   2. Good spots are found by putting the time in to find them.
   3. Along with finding your next SOT yak.
Keep logging in and posting.

Going Fishing?
Winds from the south, hook in
    the mouth.
Wind from the east, bite the least.
Wind from the north, further off.
Wind from the west, bite the
    best.

So true. Just getting a few hundred yards from shore in a kayak opens up a whole new world of fishing, at least for rockfish and lingcod.
