    Post 'em up :)

    Mine:

    1. First fish: a catfish on the banks of the Delta with my folks and my brother. Such great memories. They tasted so good. The fish, not my family. :D (Almost at the same time was striper trolling the Turning Basin and just a bit later, trolling for trophy rainbows on Hogan. These are fond early memories, too. :) )

    2. Favorite fish to catch: ocean chinook (no disrespect intended to fresh water chinookers or fishers of other species of salmon, for that matter). I know that some species (even some salmon species) have more jump to 'em, but I just love the ocean in general, and the part along the Marin coast, in particular.

    3. Favorite fish to eat: ocean chinook (see parentheses above). Again, don't get me wrong: I love almost every type of wild caught fish. Lings, bottom fish, dorado, halibut, tuna-they are all excellent...but I can only pick one, so..

    4. Favorite shellfish to eat: Dungeness crab (although I really enjoy wild shrimp and abalone and clams and mussels and..., well you get the idea :D )

    Over to you. :)

    1. Giant kelpfish off the Dana Point jetty
    2. Yellowtail on the surface iron.
    3. Yellowtail sashimi
    4. I don't do shellfish much, but chocolate clams diced up with tomato, onion, cilantro, and jalepeño, put back in the shell, wrapped in foil and baked on the barbecue is pretty darn good.
