    Yes I've been targeting halibut off Z jetty and in front of the C bridge and catching a lot of PITA spotted bay bass but fun fun fun. Sandies starting to bite good in the main channel between the sub base and ammo pier deep in the channel. Keep your head on a swivel I had to blow my whistle at a yacht to avoid a collision. No Joke he was texting while driving. Gilligan. Plan on later this week. Catching a lot of sculpin's also and one nicked the back of my calf ouch but little swelling. Hurt all day and was stiff. Good sized and great fight. Robo

    I like San Diego bay. I drift with the incoming tide usually 2 to 3 hours prior. The trick is finding structures and shelves where it drops off. I like the drop shot on the bottom along with underspin's. It also makes sense to use a little scent. I will pour a little in the resealable packages they come in. I know this old guy who pokes his soft baits with a pin head and he does score some nice halibut. If I don't pick up a halibut in a particular area I will make a move. If I hook up with some shorty's I will peddle back over a spot with the hopes of catching a keeper. I do have a big game clip that works out well. My Hobie PA 14 has a front storage hatch that I will place a bag of ice from the 99 cent store in hopes of success. I've been branching out exploring new spots and having lots of fun. I hope to see you out on the Big Bay. Robo

    I started out with a Lifetime Stealth 11 and upgraded to a Vibe Sea Ghost 130 that I still have for visitors from out of town. I always had admired seeing the ease folks had in Hobie Yaks and decided I would treat myself with no regrets. I did a Colorado float camping trip with my Vibe last Jan. It has a shallower draft than my PA and I'm still not that skilled with the mirage drive coming back in. Just a minor down side that I have to adapt to. Not long ago there was a huge sea lion guarding the entrance to SI boat ramp so I just went amphibious on the little beach next door. I had a couple of lap dances by big halibuts in my Lifetime until I learned to stage them forward between my foot rests. Great morning tides this week and into the next. Enjoy your Yak.

    Hobie pa might be out of the question for me but if been looking into the old town predator pdl hopefully have one by next season, even though paddling is good exercise I would rather have the near effortless joy of fishing a kayak lol. You gotta do what you gotta do lol. I started late in the year for fishing and already lost my 1st legal of the year due to very light line on my bait rod gotta get my redemption lol

    I am. I just picked up my neighbor’s 8ft Vanhunks Whale Runner. I did a morning session on Friday at Liberty Station and scored four spotties. My first time out on a kayak and I’m stoked!

    I know, right! I’ve sailed and fished most of my life and didn’t know how much I missed the water. I’m thinking on buying my neighbors kayak. I hope he gives me a good deal.

    It’s always been shore and piers for me, I’ve been catching more and also been having better chances at better quality fish as well, I’m able to cover more water and also at a faster pace than walking the shore
