So my tech mogul daughter and son in law were down from SF for a long weekend and wanted to go fishing. SIL gets seasick watching Victory at Sea, so I had him take a Meclizine the night before and two more when he woke up. It worked. This was not a serious fishing trip as much as it was a three hour tour—that turned into a 6 hour one. We cruised up PV, sightseeing and hitting the usual spots for a fish (or 5) here and there. Sometimes all three of us were hooked up, as conditions were ideal with a strong uphill current and slightly off color 68 degree water. Nearly all the fish were calicos, but we managed a goat too. SIL had never been in a small boat before. Fun watching him get excited seeing porpoise and a 6’ (not counting tail) thresher shark who circled the boat a couple times. This guy works with elite Artificial Intelligence programmers. It was cool showing him something new. Anyways, we made it as far west as the golf course before heading to the shoe. On the way to the shoe, we stopped on a birdnado, but like Lal saw the day before, it was just macks pushing up bait. We should have stayed at PV, cause fishing at the shoe was s-l-o-w. We bagged it a little after noon. Totals: Thirty or so bass to 3#, almost all calico. We weren’t really counting. No fish on the jigs, stick baits or spoons. They all wanted the Kman Special plastics. Some got bit on the drop, but most fish were caught near the bottom on a slow grind. Unlike previous trips, we never found THE SPOT. Once again, we didn’t sink the boat or get arrested or towed. It was a great day on the water with family. Oh, I kinda punked my SIL. I showed him how we lip bass and de hook them. Between what he caught and what I handed him, he probably lipped 25 or so bass on that virgin thumb. On the ride home, he was mentioning how tore up his thumb was. It was then I said “You know, we have special thumb tape on board for lipping fish”. Hazing complete. Hopefully the Trailer Trash’s next trip will be with live bait.
