    San Diego - Mission Bay advice

    thanks guys! I will have access to a kayak, but I'm an inexperienced fisherman, and haven't been in a kayak for 25yrs, so i'm not sure i'm ready to put the two together - do you think it'd give me a big advantage vs. fishing from the shore? What sort of size egg weight would I need? I've not...

    fishing Lake Arrowhead (Big Bear)

    Guys, looking for some advice. I'm going up to Lake Arrowhead hopefully to show my 5yr old boy what snow looks like at the end of this month. The place I'm staying comes with a pass that allows me to fish on Lake Arrowhead (I do also have a CA fishing license) - i included Big Bear in the title...
