Yesterday I witnessed a man catch a 30 to 40 foot whale in the immediate surf from Balboa Pier in the morning. He was very surprised when I told him his fish was a whale and that is why he wasn't going to be landing him. It was rather hilarious. Of course he lost his terminal gear, but he was excited about the story he could tell his friends.

It would have been an interesting dinner.

When I was poke poling at the jetty at Fort Baker on Dec 27 I saw a 20 foot whale swim right in front of the rocks about 6 feet away from me. Surprised the heck out of me. At first I thought it was a seal or sea lion but then I saw the hump and the fluke. It must have been a juvenile separated from it's mother.
