A lot of punches are thrown and blood is sometimes shed out there....

When I used to go fishing with my friend at San Louis reservoir at Dinosaur point I would keep my striped bass and would give them to his mom when we got back to Gilroy because I didn't want to clean them but I just liked being out there fishing. I didn't use to keep them but she mentioned her son didn't share and she liked striped bass so the tradition was born.

My dad was an old school coon ass and ate everything because when he was young you either hunted/fished for food or there was no meat on the table so when I went fishing with him he would clean everything to eat I just never got into that aspect of it. Now if I could go Salmon or Ahi Tuna fishing it would be a different story...

Pics of the pond. It has a slope around the edge that goes down to 3 feet and extends about 4 feet out and then it drops again down to a depth of around 12-15 feet. We put the slope on the edge with the shelf in case the girls managed to get to the pond before we could stop them. Not an issue now but it also makes a nice bedding area for the fish so it is still handy.

that pond is amazing. im so jelly.

My friend and I ventured out of the bay into the ocean on Sunday. the swell was only 2ft but it was very windy, so fishing was tough. im surprised I didnt puke in the 2hrs we were out there, lol. the bay was more comfortable but still hard to fish due to the wind.

he caught 3 fish: 2 rockfish and 1 spotted bass. I caught 9: 3 calico bass, 2 small halibut, 2 mackerel, 1 spotted bass, and 1 sculpin. 2 of the calico's were barely legal (14") but we didnt keep them. the 1 sculpin got the hook through the brain, so we kept it. we should have kept the friend's larger rock fish. unfortunately, we didnt know if it was a protected species. we didnt want to risk it.

quite a few of our fish were caught on lure that we havent had any success with previously - a swimbait slug. you can see it in the pics. I love it when techniques & lures finally work out.

It is nice when I can keep it up the downside is it took about a week of backbreaking labor to get it looking like that. I did a quick maintenance weed whack around the pond Sunday and it was a good 2 hours of swinging that thing around. The pond is about 1.5 to 1.75 acres.

I am totally jealous of you being able to ocean fish. When I lived in Cali I didn't know anyone with a open water capable boat just went to the delta once or twice and other than that is was San Luis, Anderson, Calero, Chesbro and Coyote from the shore. Also did some fishing in the old perc ponds between MH and SJ at least until I got covered in ticks one year and it took months to get rid of them at the house. Caught my biggest largemouth at those ponds but it wasn't worth the tick hassle.

Im spoiled in San Diego for fishing. Heres my notable catches for the past year. Its probably 1/2 - 3/4 of all the fish ive caught. Lots are from shore. As you can probably tell from the map, saltwater fishing here is "find water, cast, catch fish" . Refining techniques has just increased our numbers, especially on days with poor conditions.



In contrast, I suck at freshwater fishing. Ive caught 3 trout and 1 LMB in 15yrs in San Diego. Ive never taken the boat on any of the SD reservoirs for LMB because its not free, I dont know whats up, and saltwater fish are just more hungry.

Im going to get a real ocean-capable boat one of these days. Ill make sure to invite people when that happens.

I have yet to catch a Durado. They come up to San Diego occasionally and would love to catch one.

Another fishing addict here!! Before two wheels took over my life a few years ago, I fished every weekend. Mostly bass fishing. Fished lots of tournaments and had a blast. Still love it but ride much more than I fish these days. I have a 1997 19’ Ranger bass boat and a 21’ Bayliner Trophey for the salt. As well as a 14’ aluminum for trout fishing! I love it all!!

Sunday was good to me with this 4.5lb monster Sand Bass, released.



The gf and I went out from 6-11am. She caught 10 fish - 9 bass and one lizardfish. I caught 20-25 fish - 3 halibut, 1 sculpin, 1 lizardfish, and the rest bass. 3 of the bass were keepers, 14", 16", and that monster which I forgot to measure. I kept only the 16".

She caught all her fish on 4" Gulp Swimming Mullet, a curly tail grub on dropshot. I caught all mine on Gulp Jerk Shad - a fluke-style bait on dropshot. I tried plenty of other lures with no luck other than a few bikes.

So I went fishing out on the delta a couple weeks ago. First time ever really fishing and learned a ton and had a lot of fun.

I now have 5 rods (2 baitcasters, 3 spinners) a few lures and I’m building out the rest of what I need. Sticking with freshwater for now, lakes and reservoirs, but my brother in law fishes from the beach fairly often so I’ll probably hit Poplar soon in HMB to try that.
