I talked to Snookie yesterday and she told me a story about an funny incident from Thursday. She and her friends were fishing on the Balboa Pier, and catching a few fish, when a group of young men came out and watched them fish for a bit. Finally one of the men ambled over and in all seriousness asked, "when do they stock these waters," as though someone is going to stock the ocean at Balboa with fish. Snookie gave a wink to her friends and said, "they stocked it yesterday, they stock it every Wednesday." The young man seemed pleased with the information and returned to his friends where he passed along the information. Snookie's group had a chuckle and figured the men must be from an inland area where the only fish you get are from a lake or stream that has been stocked.

And yes I know that salmon, stripers, white seabass, etc. have been raised and released into ocean waters (usually streams or bays) over the years.

That's hilarious! Very Happy

Kinda like telling people the barking heard by the docks is that the dogfish are biting!

lol

seriously though people here in the Bay Area are unexposed to the outdoors. Places like San Diego, you walk around with a rod and reel, you fit in.

Here they think your'e a freak.
