    Pink Czarinas and Chameleons?

    I don't know if there is a practical way to do this with current ships, but if they had to continuously exchange ballast water during their voyage, most of the larva from the point of origin would be released within a couple of days of leaving. The ballast water at the destination would be from...

    Putah Creek 11/20

    It's good news about the trouts, but your original purpose left me wondering: how do you catch substrate feeders like suckers with hook and line? Steve

    Looking at Ken's shoreline looking north in the 50's, Surf City isn't the first name that comes to mind. Steve

    Lucky Craft Flash Minnow options

    Lucky Craft Flash Minnow options

    Ocean Beach Pier Bait and Tackle Shop

    Is the bait and tackle shop still open on Ocean Beach Pier? If so, does anyone know if they rent equipment at a reasonable price? Steve

    The official California Fish & Wildlife Dept. list of public piers and jetties — NO FISHING LICENSE REQUIRED

    All of the jetties in Ventura County are posted "keep off," so I am not surprised they are not included. Thanks, Ken, for getting the answers that have been around so long. Steve

    Knuckleheads, Dimwits and other stupid people — Stay Home!

    This could be short sighted. Fines could potentially pay for the wardens (if judges took wildlife regulations seriously). Steve
