    Re: SALtwater float tubing

    Kayak is a fun way to go, I have gone everywhere from Big sur to up North. Caught everything up to a 40lb haibut in Big Sur, that was fun to land. BUt you better know how to get thru the surf before you go. Tie everything down

    Sorry to hijack this thread, but if you're interested in Kayak fishing then you should definitely check out this website/forum. The link is to the forum. And if you need a little bit of help deciding whether or not to get a kayak for fishing then you MUST check out the second link!

    Enjoy!

    PS - all the fish caught in the Big Fish thread were caught from Monterey to Elk (just south of Ft. Bragg), CA.

    Re: SALtwater float tubing

    Oh and not trying to make up another fish story but the image of Great White I saw from Pacifica Pier few years back...

    Just by looking at it slowly moving in the water chilled me to the bone and made us back off from concrete wall 30 feet above water. The sheer size of it...... :o
    Being on a kayak definitly won't protect you from those but it would be much less likely that it will think kayak as food then a pair waiving legs with fins on it, I think.... ;)

    Thanks for the info ;)
    My wife and I both have Ocean Kayaks but we are just slow to get out with fishing gear and try more than just paddling for fun

    I can not agree more with Blue Crush on this.

    There is boat rental shop on Capitola Pier and they rent out fishing Yaks as well. I think it was about $65 for hole day.

    Where was the picture taken with all the kayaks? My wife has been wanting me to take her kayak fishing and I need to know where to go.

    Re: SALtwater float tubing

    Looks/sounds like a bobber set up for great whites . I dive in No. Ca but I'm sure not going to climb on my float tube and just let my legs dangle in the water for hours . GET A BOAT !!!

    Re: SALtwater float tubing

    these over tubes are faster and still
    high on the fun meter...
    and you can troll and cover ground better..
    but for localized fishing tubes are fun...

    I use an old 12' windsurfer board with a milk crate
    screwed to it and net on it and it's awsome....
    and it only cost 5.00 at a yard sale.... ;) :D

    Re: SALtwater float tubing

    i've been contemplating rigging up my long surfboard for fishing. surfboards may not be as stable/comfy as a tube, but they're infinitely more mobile. then i remember my boat and get over it.
