Went fishing in Monterey Bay.  Launched at the Best Western off of 1.  Surf wasn't to bad most breaker were coming in around a foot or a foot and a half with sets of 3 to 5 getting close to 3 feet.  Caught 2 nice rock fish, released 1 and had 2 really nice hits and one other bite.  Only fished for about 3 hours and I'd never been there before so all in all not bad.  Also caught lots of bait.  Had a whale breach about 40' from me and scare the crap out of me.  First whale I've seen at least twice my height on the water and two to three times the length of my kayak, and that's just what I could see coming out of the water.  I would have been cool with if I I'd heard it coming, but the first breach was right beside me.. I made a b line for open water.  Anyway it made for an extremely eventful day.

I saw 4 other yaks fishing so if anyone is in the area and wants a fishing buddy message me.

I'm new to the area.  you could go a few more miles by land and launch at the wharf.  wouldn't really change paddling distance much(i paddled back towards lovers point) but it would/ should give you a wave break.. but you have to pay to park there.
