Some of them looked like PRIME estuaries to me, and looked as though they would have massive amounts of gamefish at least part of the year. I was just wondering if any of you folx had experience fishing those areas and if they were productive.
Oh, and after seeing San Diego, why in the world does every body want to live in LA and not in SD?
I only got to fish off of the Shelter Island Pier while I was there, and found even that pier to be quite enjoyable. Caught only bratwurst sized mackerel, but I have never had any fish move like that when pulled out of the water.
My parents have property in San Gregorio (northern Cali) on the coast. Yes those waters hold fish but you have to hike away from the coast a couple miles to get them. Small during the year and larger when the runs hit.
