RE: Fishing is all about the experience

in #fishing11 months ago

That's fantastic. Some of my best memories are back with the fam on camping trips. My dad used to deal with my tangles. 🤣

Those days inspired the love for fishing that I carry with me to this day. I love screaming line on big yellowtail here off the SoCal coast. I also love being in a river with a fly rod.

Best of wishes to you and your grandson! 👍👍

Very nice thank you 👊
I would love to fish out on the ocean. Do you hit the shore or go out on a boat?

My old man was a doc here in the Tri City area of Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista, California. North San Diego county. We used to go on trips to Mammoth during the summer where he got good at untangling my line!

He was never really into ocean fishing, but one of his patients took us out on a small craft and we caught big bonito. I was around 12 or so and I was hooked. It wasn't until I was 19 though that I met some friends who also loved fishing offshore.

I even worked on a boat called the Electra out of Oceanside for a season and a half. Just shouldn't have waited to do it til I was 43. 😁 Ocean fishing is something else but it's expensive.

Gotcha! I'll bet you can do pretty well on the shore. I went once many years ago outside of Petaluma. We hiked out on the rocks. Caught some cool looking rock fish. I caught my biggest fish there- a leopard shark
