Finally got around to some maintenance on the cart and took some pics.

Some carts I assume already have straps attached, but mine didn't so I zip tied on some dog harness/collars from the dollar store. Straps can adjust for kayak width. Seems to work out decently so far. Metal D-rings rusted so were replaced with zip ties.

Also, lightly sanded the axels and applied some silicone lube.. hopefully the wheels won't stick while so much for a bit during removal for hull storage.

Introductions / Back into kayak fishing times

Trip 1: Limit of rockfish at the fort. Easy peasy, fine day.

Trip 2: Bolinas, one hali.

Trip 3: Muir skunked 8 hours on the water, not a single nibble. Launch/landing was cool :) > A plethora of beachgoers, a couple gave me kudos at being their entertainment for the day... I wondered if they saw me taking a leak out the drysuit.

Trip 4: My humbling and harrowing tale. Not having exercised much in the past few months and feeling out of shape, I decided to give a go for some water time therapy and fish. Said my prayers.  No swell and light to moderate winds. Made it out near the dux reef and where the boaters were fishing. Drift was pretty fast but got some rockfish and a couple good unseen fish-on that came unbuttoned.
Wind was picking up and I had just recently gotten the good hits, so I thought one more drift... drifted a little past the south end of stinson. Oh boy, the paddle back was kinda rough.  After about 30 minutes? I was noticing little to no forward movement progress. Anxiety was creeping and whitecaps had formed, I could feel the bonks coming on, and sciatica was flaring. I thought about a quote I had learned in back rehab therapy -once you think you're done, you can go further. Well, shortly thereafter I said no way and went in to land at the southerly end of the beach.  Unbent the back, had a stoge, and ate and orange on provided lawn chairs. Call an uber? The shame.

Looked at my watch, and sundown would be in like an 1-1/2 hour. Crap better get moving. Relaunched and the wind had died down.  Still a steady into the wind and my body was feeling it hard.  Thought about triathaloners, 13 hours benghazi, mariners of old, and the good Lord Almighty. Land ho! Arrived back at the launch shortly before sundown. Thank you Jesus!

Got hit major today on the way to the coast.. **Speed trap shortly after Monte Rio on River road where speed limit signs transition between 35/55mph**.

Wasn't driving anything excessive but they were there pulling cars over quite a bit it seemed. I respect LEO's but got shafted hard by what came off to me as a major *%$!@. Officer Jimerson? Left a bad taste in my mouth. You prick.

Also heard that there's a jazz festival goin on for this weekend... so just a rant and heads up. Any traffic attorneys out there?  :smt012
