    thanks surfgoose. i'm a fanatic about safety, but always appreciate the reinforced message. can you expand on the current direction? so does the inshore current always mirror the tide direction, i.e. low tide will always cause current away from shore? if so would it be right to think that...

    Advice/Perspective for a newbie in San Diego

    thanks for the thoughts. i think your #3 is right on. i've mostly fished the sd fleet and have been spoiled by how well they find fish. doing it on my own now is actually most of the reason i bought a boat. doing it easily and consistently i'm finding to be a whole 'nother story.

    They'll get it done in 2 days because of the "odd" times. it allows the boat to get to the fish (while everyone is sleeping), to spend an entire day (from sun-up to sun-down) in the zone. afterwards, you go back to sleep and wake up at the docks. This is much more opportunistic then motoring...
