California for now
Hi, new guy here. Wondering how many of you take your kayak out on the ocean? I have fished the East Cape out of Rancho Leaonero many times and I fish up and down the California coast. Just wondering how many of you ocean fish and what you chase?

Not me amigo but welcome!

Mostly out here in North Texas (Dallas/Ft.Worth area) most guys fish lakes, ponds, or rivers.

Some do go down to the Gulf and chase fish. But I will let them share with you as I have not done it myself.

What do you fish for in Cali? I am from LA myself and used to fish Calicos and the like... the usual suspects of onshore fishing in So Cal.

On my kayak
I fish inshore when down at the coast. I would like to go BTB but when I take a trip down to the coast the wind is always to bad for it. I think there are only like two days out of the year the wind isn't bad at the Texas coast. Reds and trout. This forum is mostly freshwater and north Texas fisherman.

I've fished East Cape, but not the same one that you do. roflmao Plan to fish it again this fall for snook, trout, red fish, tarpon, and triple tail.

It’s been a long time since I have been offshore or Beyond the Breakers, BTB in a kayak.

There’s a lot that do go offshore. People go off Crystal Beach/Bolivar for bull redfish and sharks. Action is usually pretty close to shore and comes on soaking chunks of bait.

Lots of people troll lures for king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, jack Crevalle. A few places have oil rigs close enough or other subsurface structures to go after ling. Snapper, spadefish and the like.

There’s Tarpon and tripletail in close, close enough for a kayak.

This forum as it has been mentioned is not one with a lot of saltwater folks.

Just got back from btb just south of Bob Hall pier. Son caught a lemon and I had a run on a ribbon fish that broke the line. Get used to how your kayak handles, which way it wants to turn in waves. Magicseaweed.com will give you info on surf conditions. Your looking for under 2 ft with greater than 3 second period and winds under 14. Strap or tie everything down. You will turtle at least once. Go with someone the first time.



I fish on a 14 ft piece of plastic.
