#12231, "Oh the places you'll go"


  

          

Reflecting today on all the places fishing has taken me. I can't help but be hyper-focused on catching fish, whether it's taking my boys to the local pond or fishing a 400 boat tournament. But more in the recent years I've taken time to look around and soak in the beauty of the places fishing has taken me.

Here's a list of all the places I've been over the years. Some highlights. And a few places I'd still like to make it to.

Best Of
The backside of Cedros Island is a special place in the world. Watching huge yellowtail crash the surface was a heart pumper.

San Pablo in the early 2000's was astounding. Big giant bass, and so many of them.

Don Pedro 2005. Bass so hungry for a swimbait we switched to smaller hooks.

Slammer fishing at Coyote before they stopped planting trout. Big sloppy bass eating big topwater. I can still hear the sounds of the blowups in my head.

Clear Lake on the a-rig

Catching 60 stripers in a day on the Delta. Cast after cast on the all white BH.

The madness and agony of night time beach sriper fishing

"The Point" at Huntington Lake, for sentimental reasons

Wide open barracuda on the Horseshoe Reef on the stardust. Tady A-1.

Sunny day halibut at goleta beach from the float tube

Catching a 13 in a tournament at McClure and an 11 in a B-n-T tourney at Coyote & Rancho. Big bass by themselves are fun, big bass in tournaments add to the adrenaline.
