HMB – Kayaking to Victory!

Aaalllrriightty, and that brings us to the kayak trip with Calvin!  Weather had finally calmed down to 2ft of combined swell.  A mite windy @ 6-12mph, but definitely doable.  In fact the wind was down most of the day until we started making our way back in!  Was a nice day on the water:

How To: DSI Transducer On A Kayak

Guide on how to mount a DSI transducer/skimmer on a kayak is up! No drilling of the kayak required.  Here’s the video version as well:

 

This can be found in the How To section.

How to section!

Its been a long time comin’, but I’m finally getting it started!  We’ll now have a “How To” section.  I know I had to do a lot of scrounging around to learn a lot of the things I’ve picked up over the years.  Sometimes it was a lack of information, other times I found things weren’t a perfect fit for me and I had to mix and match.  You can reach it from the top of the page (“How To’s (Rigs, Set ups, Poke Poling & More!), and hovering over it will show all the sections once they’re live.

 

After years of trying to piece things together and make things work for me, I’ve garnered a great respect for people who selflessly take the time to share their experiences and strategies with everyone else.  Today, I’m finally following in their foot steps.  I won’t be able to flesh out every section I’ve outlined in the “How To” section, but I’ll be sure to finish at least one or two articles tonight.

See a section you’re interested but isn’t live yet?  Comment!  Email me!  I’m flexible on the order these come out at.  Don’t see something you want? Let me know about that too!  Maybe it never occurred to me, maybe I don’t know but could do some research!  Let me know what you want.  This blog was started with the intent to share my knowledge with other avid anglers :]

Crappies and Giant Goldfish

So Friday 9/7 I ran out to the South Half Moon Bay jetty to see if I could catch some rock fish off the jetty and maybe some rock crabs for a nice meal.  Turns out I couldn’t find either, and instead found a ton of dungeness crabs.

Trout fishing Mono County

So…I’ve managed to fall waaaay behind on updating unfortunately.  So we’ll start way back on August 28th with our fishing adventure on June Lake.  Going to keep the three trips as separate posts so they can be organized properly (grouping of posts and what not).
Just to back up and give myself a little bit of excuse (heh ^^) I’ve been pretty busy @_@  Reason for this one not being on time is we were on vacation that week, and I didn’t have access to my computer.  Soon as we got home we had to clean up the house since we had it fumigated while we were gone.  Also the morning after we got back we had a Farallon Islands rock cod trip scheduled, and that was just exhausting…and so it goes d=  Anyhow!  On with the June Lake fishing report!

Here’s a short clip on our way out there from David Walley’s in Nevada.  My mom wanted my Dad to take a picture of I think Mono Lake if I remember correctly…

Anyhow, we scoped the place out the day before and saw some cool stuff.  There were 2 boat rental places and we decided to go with Big Rock Resort (a word of warning, never rent from them…you’ll find out why later).  So we headed back to our place after wandering around town for awhile and got ready to come back the next morning.

All dressed and ready to go!

Next morning rolls around and we hop onto a 14′ aluminum boat.  Was pretty amusing leaving dock since my dad was having trouble controlling the boat d=  If you’re wondering where the fish are, head to the left of the Big Rock Resort buildings (while facing it).  Go past the reeds and don’t stop until at least you reach the little dock sticking out after the reeds.  Shouldn’t be more than a 5-10 minute drive.  Anchor off shore if you can, and fish the ridge between you and the shore.  All along the coast from here on out seemed to produce.

We were using 1/2oz of weight on a carolina rig with power pait marshmallows (rainbow colored).  This will probably depend more on the day, but the fish we caught were all suspended about 3/4 of the way down.  My brother and I fished towards shore, my mom fished away, and my dad was tossing lures in every direction from the back of the boat.

Before I forget, this is how we fish XD

Pretty stylish right? It feels nice too!
