    fished out of dana piont early saturday morning, no yellows only bonita, and a water rescue on the way back, off dana piont, A kayaker had cap sized and was in the water. We picked him up and tied off his boat. The smart thing was the guy had a radio and a inflatable life vest. When he fell in the water his radio, evidently, sensored the water and called for the harbor sheriff. They showed and took over. They towed his boat and gave him a lift.

    I don't get it. Was he too fat to get back on the kayak? I'd imagine this is something you should prepare for? Self-rescue?

    If you can't swim and wear a life jacket to protect you from drowning and can't get back on your kayak/flip it over after tipping....... Wow

    There are all kinds of people doing dangerous stuff out there. My son and I were trolling the K20 area at Catalina a few years back and the wind really started picking up around 4:30 PM We see this lone kayaker paddling madly against the wind. We go over to check it out and the dude says he is trying to find his girl friend who was supposed to meet him out on the water.

    So we offer to take him into Descanso where he launched the yak. First of all he has no life jacket on, and when he tries to get into the boat, he falls right in the drink, narrowly missing his head. So he makes it on board and starts telling us how he is Tim from England, and his girl is supposed to rent a yak and paddle up to some campground. Never mind it's blowing 20+ knots at this time.

    Dude is wet and freezing, so I give him some whiskey to take off the chill. He finally gets some cell service and finds his chick is in Avalon still because the rental place had the sense to say no, you are not going out in the wind. So we dropped him off at the beach club and said good luck!

    That night we caught a 35 pound sea bass at Seal Rocks, that is now my BD avatar, so karma definitely came into play!
