If you enjoy fishing and tinkering, kayakfishing may be for you. It's popular in Southern California and many other areas of the country. Guys are catching 50+ pound yellowtail in San Diego regularly.
And the opportunities to add crap to your kayak is sometimes half the fun - at least for me. A battery powered bait tank and fish finder lead the list of my electrified add-ons. Throw in some rocket launcher type rod holders, a homemade gaff and a club to subdue Mr. Halibut and you're on your way. So far, my best catch is a 29" Halibut, but Calico Bass, Leopard Sharks, White Sea Bass and Spotted Bay Bass also bite regularly. Not to mention the infamous 4 inch Kelp Wrasse.
I fish in and around Dana Point California, sometimes within twenty feet of shore at Doheny Beach (watch out for waves and lifeguards) or out to a mile or more near the kelp beds. I've got to get out on the water more - all work and no play makes Al a crazy boy.
