    My buddy had never kayak fished from a Hobie, so I thought he could use the spare hanging in the garage. Grabbed coffee and breakfast burritos and the fish were biting. We released a few calicos, over a dozen rockfish, and missed the opportunities on big lingcod eating live mackerel but ended up with some fish for him to clean.

    Just curious, do you launch out of somewhere other than the la jolla shores park?

    Yes at the south end of WindanSea beach, down the walkway near the end of Winamar Ave.

    And, only because its two blocks from my garage.

    Out of an abundance of caution though, I do not recommend this location unless you are a very avid waterperson and can judge surf conditions very well. Only an easy launch when the waves are FLAT or during a summer windswell, otherwise you may be dealing with 6 to 10-foot waves, mountains of whitewater, and an army of local surfers. Even when its flat and the sand is "out" on our end of the beach, your kayak needs to clear the 10+ foot drop from the cliff down to the sand, and sometimes just 6 feet deep in soft seaweed on the rocks to launch from.

    So from that perspective it's a "rough neighborhood' (for kayaks). See?

    I used to launch out of Marine St, swim out over the waves and pull my yak to me with a rope. Not an advisable thing to do. seguridad no es un accidente..

    Yeah, I'll stick to the shores. I was hoping there was somewhere as easy that's not so far from the fishing spots

    I have honestly caught more and bigger yellowtail by pedaling North from the La Jolla Shores launch starting this time of year. Do some research, maybe look through old Fall (Sept-Nov) kayaking photos on this site and others and you may be very surprised at what you'll realize ... I'll stop there.

    OK,first clue

    Yep.. personally I prefer fishing yellows off the OB/MB areas... Bigger YT and less crowded water
