There is an inn by Shelter Cove launch, maybe your wife would appreciate that!  I heard the Inn Keeper is a fishing fan, not to mention fabulous and reasonable facility.  And THE local guide .... top notch!

Donít believe the hype. :smt003

Love the San Diego tuna trips! Been a couple of years for me.

Amazing score! Need to spill a little blood on the deck soon.

General Talk / Re: GWS attack at Gray Whale cove
« on: June 28, 2021, 06:10:00 PM »
The guy who got attacked at Gray Whales was a surfer.

I've heard that they hang out near the surfline looking for seals...and probably why we often hear about attacks on surfers. Their pinnipeds looking silhouette doesn't help either. I tell myself that I'd be safer if I was out further out in open water, but no guarantees...SS always.

You know, so few people die. But the experience is the stuff that our deepest nightmares are made of. If I were hit by a Polaris attack or had a little chew on the leg in the surf zone I'm not sure what it would take for me to go back again. To those of you on this forum (Innkeeper) that have seen the landlord and continued to launch their kayaks, hats off!

General Talk / Re: Stinger hook recommendations
« on: June 28, 2021, 06:02:42 PM »

The ER doctor remarked how this hook was so much harder to cut than the usual hooks he sees as he was trying to remove it from my hand.  ;)


That looks like a pretty clean cut for a seal or sealion.
I had the same thought.

Great report and very nice king!  Fat for its length.  Big congrats, and enjoy thinking of that prize every night when you go to bed for at least 3 months!  If you're a super well rounded and down to earth dude you'll hang up the fishing rod now and not obsess with getting the next one...   :smt005

Everybody here is well rounded. That's how we made it to this forum, right?

Hit the water by 8:00 AM. Had to make a run to Bodega Bait and Tackle and that made me later than I would have liked . Launching was easy. Went under the bridge in about 10 fow at a span that must have been 40í up. The water gets deep under the bridge and then comes right back up.

Got bit right before the bridge. Lost it - no stinger. Wonít do that again because it happened a second time as I was pulling into paradise.

Trolled up to paradise beach/the pier then started a slow drift back to Tiburon yacht club. The wind went from 9-10 mph to well above 15, at least the gusts. Wind chop was too much to handle and had to head straight in. Hugged the shore line and crossed just east if Corte Madera.

The ride back across was a little wiggly. Well, a lot wiggly. But no where near as wiggly as it would have been had I retraced my outgoing route by the 40í(ish) span.

Pulled up about a quarter mile from shore at San Quentin, kept close to shore and went under the Richmond Bridge at the first span. I def had to put my rod and net down. The distance from the water to the underside of the bridge was less than six feet. Thanks for the heads up SteveS. Disaster averted.

Iíd do this again on a less windy day. But, I wouldnít do an eight mile plus out and back.  And, I would probably turn towards China Camp not head to Paradise. If Paradise is your target, just go to the pier and suffer the hill.

The launch is awesome. Iíd suspect itís a no go on a negative tide. I suspect itís a mud walk on tides lower than 1 ft, actually. But anything above youíll be ok. Might have to paddle a bit through two fow, but doable.

Many, many times from that launch.
If you have rods vertical you'll either need a low tide, or move out till the bridge rises enough.
There's a good hole under it, and a nice shelf on either side.

In a big outgoing it can be hard to get back

Going out tomorrow in the AM. Looks like itíll be a lake for most of the AM.

Isn't this open to club members only? There's also a nearby beach launch at Jean & John Starkweather shoreline park.

The launch at Jean and John Starkweather is actually what Iím referring to, but most of the posts here refer to it as the Marin Rod and Gun Club launch. Have you done this launch and if so, do you head under the bridge when you do? Wondering what itís like under there and if itís safe.

Dumb question. When yíall launch from here, do you go under the Richmond Bridge? Is it freaky?

I never knew there was a saltwater version of Loch Lomond until I joined NCKA
I always think of the fresh water reservoir near Scotts Valley
Where I caught my first fish, a bluegill :smt044

Makes funny things happen with Google maps.
