Buddy has a new, small Boston Whaler, 16'. No sonar or anything yet. He wants to putt around shore and do some local fishing. Not asking for your sweet spots, just wondering if there maps or sites that point out local reefs and kelp beds? Maybe even some regular aerial shots or something, just don't want to motor around aimless. Thanks all!

    If in Long Beach, work breakwall, oil islands and all jetty rock piles.
    You can drift and troll.
    Watch where you anchor inside.
    Navigation channels=No Anchor.
    Fish around Nachos👏🌭🌭
