General Talk / Re: Fish Descender
« on: Today at 09:03:25 AM »

I carry a descender with weights attached on my kayak, as shown below.  I had numerous discussions with CDFW staff, and they all accepted it as meeting the requirement.

Paul
I'm currious, exactly like that or did they say it has to be attach to a fishing rod?

They never told me it needed to be attached to a pole. If they did, I would respond that it would not be safe in a kayak.  Since I have already attached the weight, I could argue that it is ready for immediate use.
Since it is the first year, confusion and issues might need to be resolved.   Please let me know if anyone gets a citation or warning for not attaching to their fishing pole from a kayak.  I will discuss this with the CDFW staff.

Paul

I can message you the officers name if you like. As i mentioned, she was the only one that stated it needed to be attached to a pole.

Since you were on a boat, I don't want to escalate now.  I want to focus more for kayaks at this time.

General Talk / Re: Anyone fish in a tandem?
« on: Today at 09:00:04 AM »
My wife and I have been using Hobie Oasis for 7+ years and love them.
I am not familiar with Feelfree kayaks.  I have several friends with Compas Duo, and they like them.  If you don't get an opportunity to try Feelfree Lure 2, I would stay with Hobie.
The price of a used kayak will come down in the fall, and you might have to increase your search area. 

You can see us fishing from our tandem kayak: https://youtu.be/p-Y43IAmWj8?si=KMsb9HHgMCE54PnI

This is the exact wording from the regulation:

"No person shall take or possess any federal groundfish as defined in Section 1.91 and all greenlings of the genus Hexagrammos from any boat or other
floating device in ocean waters without having a descending device in possession and available for immediate use to assist in releasing rockfish to the
depth of capture (§27.20(b)(1)(D)(2))."

Thanks for the report. Sounds like you guys had a great day.
Yes, we did.  I hope you can join us next time.

Happy to report it was a great day on the water! The water stayed flat, and the fish weren’t shy. Thank you Paul and Eddie for a great day, looking forward to going back out soon!

It was nice to meet you and fish with you.  Thank you for helping me carry my kayak.

Thanks for the report.

A friend got a verbal about a having a descender but wasn't readily available, meaning not attached to a rod.
I don't recall anything in writing saying that we need to have a dedicated rod for descending purpose.


This is the exact wording and needs to be available for immediate use.

No person shall take or possess any federal groundfish as defined in Section 1.91 and all greenlings of the genus Hexagrammos from any boat or other
floating device in ocean waters without having a descending device in possession and available for immediate use to assist in releasing rockfish to the
depth of capture (§27.20(b)(1)(D)(2)).

As I was driving toward FR, I checked the ocean condition, and it was a lake. Met Logan, Eddie, and Eddie #2.  We launched close to 8 AM and headed to my go-to spots.  The first spot was slow, I had one 28" ling but it jumped off from my net.  We moved to the second sport, and I got several ling bites from the start.  Brown rockfish were huge.  At the end of the day, I got a limit of lings and rockfish (Browen, Copper, China, Canary).  Got 20+" yellow eye and released using a descender. 

As Eddie and I were heading toward the landing spot, CDFW boated approached and checked our fish and licenses.  They were very friendly, and we chatted for several minutes.  They informed us that they issued a citation to a boater without a descending device today.

No, I haven’t ever launched from Ft.Ross before.

Logan
Hi Logan
It would be best if you had a beach wheel to launch and pay for $10 parking using an envelope.  After unloading your kayak, you have to park at the parking lot and hike down. 
If you have any questions, please let me know.

Paul

I have not fished that spot and hope I can join you at a later date.

Have fun.

Paul

I look forward to seeing you all at 7!
I'm camping at Timber Cove on Sunday night, others are also welcome to join me there.

I am looking forward to meeting you, Logan.
Have you launched from Fort Ross before?

Paul

Eddie and I have been discussing heading to Fort Ross for some time.  Finally, we have a good weather forecast and plan to chase some lings and rockfish on Monday.  Other members are welcome to join.  We plan to arrive around 7 AM.

I have attached parking and weather information.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Petrale Sole
« on: July 13, 2024, 09:53:29 AM »
I’m pretty sure I caught a couple Petrale Sole in Mendo last trip. DFW flatfish identification site didn't even list them, so I was unsure. I caught them on large frozen sardines trying for halibut in about 120’ of water. I released them but should have kept at least one- you can fillet them like halibut to get small clean fillets. I imagine they must be like sand dabs without dealing with the bones. I think bouncing smaller anchovies would probably be the way to go to target them specifically. The larger 19” one fought like a shaker halibut. These seem like a worthy fish to target.

Here is the flat fish identification information I carry when I target them.
