Then they would just through them further up the shore to let the birds eat them. Why kill something if you are not...

    Tidelands 10-12 evening spotties

    I left work early and headed for the tidelands on the yak. Launched at around four oclock to sunny skys and light wind. The tide was heading out strong and I was not anticipating a wide open bite. However, the day was nice and it beats being at home working around the house. I started my...

    LJ 8-22-06 morning

    Met Troy at the beach this morning and we launched the yaks into unpredictable surf. It would have been a dry launch if I hadn't been in such a hurry. Slung the yak toward me and gracefully mounted and rolled right off the other side.:o (Dumb ass) I got back on the yak and off I went. Nothing...

    La Jolla 8-1

    Met up with my buddy Troy and hit the cove this morning to look for the yellows. Launched in total darkness at about 4:50 am. Paddled out to the can and was there for first light. We should have hit the pier for bait as the outside was barren. Fishing was slow as we moved out to the 100 foot...
