    Fish in Paradise

    I dedicated my latest fishing endeavor to the late Eloy who fished the Richmond pier. First impressions are everything to me and Eloy was always warm and welcoming to me the handful of times I have fished Richmond. I will never forget the people who were kind to me in life. Never. You can...

    Northbay Action “Live” 06/08

    Rest in peace, Eloy. Condolences to his family. He was always cordial to me the few times I've been to Richmond and I will never forget that.

    A Picture is worth

    Wasn't my fish, but it was a nice 25-incher.

    Need some help...

    No garbage. No graffiti. No puke. No piss. No idiots. No poachers. That would be ideal, unfortunately, such a pier doesn't exist. It's the complete opposite here in Northern California. Is it that hard to carry around a pee cup? Really "pisses" me off when someone pisses on the pier...

    500 words. A 1000 if I didn't blur out the background.

    And I Thought It Was Over

    Once You're Hooked. You remind me of a member (FoggyCoast, most recently Multicast) from who was lambasted online for taking every single fish you catch. FYI. 27.91. GREEN STURGEON. (a) Green sturgeon may not be taken or possessed. (b) Green sturgeon may not be removed from...

    Finally A Hali Worth Posting

    You're watching a master at his craft. Embrace every letter that he types and pass that wisdom onwards to your kin. This is how humans evolve into better beings. Sharing. Let those songs linger, my friend. They're always in my head.

    Paradise Pier - Poachers

    I would have to disagree. These guys need to be called out for their wrongdoings. These guys need to be ashamed to show their faces in public. Nothing is more embarassing than having poacher affixed to one's name. If I were fishing with more like-minded individuals yesterday and we all...

    East Bay Halibut

    First of all, congrats on the fish. I wish you were with me yesterday because it's hard to constantly fight a losing one-man battle.

    Paradise Pier - Poachers

    The main reason I decided to remove most of my posts was not to enable poachers, and I've seen too many of them throughout the years. I'm going to call out some fishermen publicly to straighten out their ways. Met three regulars at Paradise: [1, 2 and 3] I don't personally know any of them...

    Berkeley Pier

    It's really unfortunate that neither Berkeley nor Albany can take advantage of their massive waterfront. Look at San Francisco and Sausalito's thriving waterfront. I've joked with a friend before that the city of Berkeley should first focus on fixing the roads leading to the pier before they...

    Throwback Picture from the Berkeley Pier

    Definitely the last fish I had caught before the pier got shut down. I was so shocked to hear the news of the closure that I drove back to the pier the next day just for confirmation. Probably not the last fish that was caught before the pier got shut down because I vaguely recall you writing...

    What's the significance of this picture? The fish was caught and released in the wee hours of 7/22/2015.

    How many read the articles? Too long?

    Ken, any well-written article is never too long. As with your case, your articles are perfect. Do not shorten the articles. As to which articles I have read and will read, I have and will only read what pertains to me. If anything, include more pictures of people and their catches because I...

    Weird bat ray — Mutilated when young? Genetic abnormality? Conjoined twins?

    Mr. Lucky

    Hahaha, I've seen too many guys like you. Reminds me of someone (BIG O) last year who pulled up a 30" hali in less than 30 minutes of fishing. Some guys have all the "luck."
