I’m very excited to be writing for you. BD Outdoors has asked me to write a twice weekly column aimed at those of us who fish with the sportboat fleet of Southern California. I am one of you. I came here to Southern California awhile back (longer than I care to admit). I grew up in the Seattle, Washington area and fished the southern end of Puget Sound for rockfish, flounder, perch, and occasionally salmon.
When I came here, I was one of those once or twice a year guys.
Maybe 6 or 7 years ago, I decided I wanted to get back to fishing and learn to become proficient at doing it here. I eventually started my SoCal Salty blog as an on the water diary to keep track of fishing trips…in case I did something right and wanted to replicate it. I found an audience that appreciated my reports and now I get to share my observations here.
Beginning next week, I’ll bring you a recap of what happened on the boats over the weekend on Tuesdays. Fridays, I’ll give you some ideas of where you might want to fish and what you can expect to have a chance to catch.
The season is really heating up and all our top gamefish are in play right now, so I hope you follow along and catch a trophy.
