Obsessed with fishing

Anybody else obsessed with ocean fishing? I can't get enough, since the age of 5. I get seasick on a boat in any swells over 4 feet, yet I just bought a 24' PNW fishing boat. I stare at the swell and wind reports every morning. I'm also obsessed with fishing from shore for huge Lings and rockfish. It's like a sickness..........I'm thinking of trading my 08 R6 race bike for a small 14-16' aluminum so I can self launch......

I had a boat in FL. Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean is the number one thing I miss the most from FL.

Heck yeah, I'm all about the salt water. I can't catch anything more than crawdad in fresh water. I will catch 1-2 salmon a year but dungeness and lingcod are my go to. I fish all over the Sonoma coast.

Just cause your piece is at the gunsmith, it doesn't mean you're not a gunfighter. You need a back-up piece. ↔ russ69

yes, yes I am. the San Diego bays have 3 species of bass, sculpin, and halibut that are amazingly fun to catch and eat.

I have a 12' inflatable with a 15HP outboard that is great for 2-3 people fishing in the bays. a few months ago, I was going 3-4x a month. Harbor Patrol just opened up recreational boating as long as everyone is from the same household. so ill probably go this weekend.

shore fishing in the bays is still closed.

im probably going to sell my race bike this year to buy a larger boat.

Very nice!


I’ve never caught sand bass before, they must be further south from where I live and fish.

Sand bass are def plentiful from Santa Barbara south. DFG says they live as far north as Santa Cruz - didn’t know that one.

a buddy and I caught ~25 fish on Sunday from 8 different species, including 2 keeper sand bass. we dont frequently catch that many species, so that was really cool - sand bass, calico bass, spotted bass, mackerel, lizardfish, sculpin, halibut, and sargo. I bought 3 new lures and they all caught fish immediately. unfortunately, I lost one of them 20min after reeling in a keeper

these sand bass arent legal. I tend to fish 2 poles and caught both of these nearly at the same time, lol.

I love fishing so much I had a pond built in my yard. I have it stocked with largemouth bass, many kinds of bluegills and catfish. It is nice after work to being able to hang out by the pond and catch some fish. I hate cleaning them so I catch and release but if I get a big enough bass I will call up family and neighbors and see if someone wants it.

During the SIP here in Louisiana I have let some of the kids my daughters know fish the pond to stave off boredom. They can fish but have to stay down at the pond and let me know before they come so I can make sure the family stays inside.

I really like to eat ocean fish and would love to go out but need to befriend someone with an open water capable boat.......

I fish for sport. Flyfish for trout and bass, lure fish for largemouth bass etc.
Now, my wife is a carnivore. She wants to keep everything. It can get pretty serious. When we fish together in a boat, I suddenly develop a serious case of Butterfingers when I catch a fish. "Oops! Sorry honey. It just slipped out of my fingers"
A lot of punches are thrown and blood is sometimes shed out there....
