 For starters - no equipment, shallow water, practice flipping an self rescue, launch and landing, learn your tipping point. . Things get different with equipment so practice that too.

 I love my Penn 85 for bottom fishing. Check out http://store.scottsbt.com/Penn-Parts-Home-Page-W7C1.aspx . Good place for parts.

                Thought provoking isn't it?                                      http://www.norcalkayakanglers.com/index.php?topic=77582.0

General Talk / Could Santa Cruz jetty be modified?
« on: March 19, 2016, 11:29:46 AM »
   Could the jetty or entrance be  modified using computer modeled sand flow programs so that the sand would bypass the entrance and land in front of O'neills?




 Took pictures of dead anchovies on the way out 0700. When I came back afternoon the launch ramp was closed. The white in photo is dead anchovies on bottom. Check the  website.


   Otherwise caught a nice vermillion, a blue, and three brown between 1/2 and 1/4 mile north of mile marker. Nice day.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Shark Deterrent Wetsuit

  Probably not what you would want to be wearing for swimming in an African watering hole.

  Fishing kayaks sure seem to be taking a disproportionate number of hits.  Would that be because of the fish finder or the faint chemical traces of violent fish deaths ,  a combination? Other? Coincidence?

    Dolphins use 75 to 150 hz approx.

    Fishfinder is 50 to 200 hz

     Gws hears up to 800 hz

    That's an adolescent GWS .

   What if a coastal strain of GWS  is  making a comeback after near extinction .Gill netting having been banned etc. The Monterey Bay before Europeans, for instance,  was boiling over with fish and the coastline was probably covered in seals . Why would  a shark  want to be anywhere else?

    That could mean that every year we are going to get a new batch of curious shark kids out to taste and learn everything. Getting sighted-in as it were.

Fish Talk / Re: Hundreds of Seal Lion Pups Washing Up on SoCal Beaches
« on: March 17, 2013, 11:56:04 AM »
  Only 20 percent of african lion cubs live to two years old.

  The sea lion thing may be mostly forage related, but I don't think  rescue operations are helping them as a species.

  Gotta get thru those first three weeks  and then it lets up, or at least that was about my time.

 It's a big deal, nicotine is very addictive.

    I read somewhere that sometimes when blues are attacking menhaden that are backed up to a beach,
that all that is left over is a sheen upon the water with flurries of shiny scales as tho a lawn mower had gone thru the school.
   Blues are a bit like piranhas .

  Read "Blues" by John Hersey if you run into it. Great book.

  Watch out for the little 8" or so reflection wave off the sometimes submerged sometimes above water rock wall  to the far right of the beach. Very speedy.It runs perpendicular to the beach.  I think how it works is if you have only a foot of draft beneath you then the kayak doesn't ride over the wave but takes the whole several hundred pounds flat on. Almost got me a couple times. Maybe it's just because it's so fast.
