My buddy and I set out to catch some cat fish seeing that the river is over ran with striper fisherman, And all my coyote spots are full up with farm equipment. We did ok the cats were small 10"-15" but the action was there all day. Then we hooked into this critter on small equipment it took awhile and landing it with out a net was fun as well.Posted Image

Got to tell this true fish story. My buddy and I were fishing for stripers in the Stockton Turning Basin, when he hooks into what we thought was a monster striper, after playing this thing for a long time we see color and it's yellow and this carp is foul hooked in the tail. We were really bummed. My buddies brother-in-law was in another boat and asked what he was going to do with the carp. Well we didn't want it so he gave it to him. He then goes over to what they call welfare point where the bank fisherman are and sold the thing for $15. Buy low sell high. ;)

You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

I know its down right sneaky. But if I can't catch a fish, I've been known to buy fish from charter fishing boats coming in.... ;) :o :lol: My wife thinks I'm the ultimate fisherman! :lol: I just hope she never finds out that you usually can't catch ling cod from the shore :lol:

My wife thinks I'm the ultimate fisherman! :lol: I just hope she never finds out that you usually can't catch ling cod from the shore ;)

But you can catch ling cod from shore if you know how and where to fish for them. My family has been doing if for over 100 years down at Dillon's Beach, CA. That's just North of San Francisco and Point Reyes National Sea Shore, California. We've owned at least one house down there continuously since before 1900. We fish the rocks North of Dillon's by poke pole fishing. If you've never done it it looks and sounds strange but is a very effective way to fish. You fish with a long bamboo pole with a stiff wire tip of about two feet long a top the pole. You use a leader of hundred plus pound test about four inches long with at least a 5/0 hook. The trick is fishing at minus by tides climbing out onto the rocks and fishing down between and under the boulders. Clam makes the best bait and you can catch a great number of and variety of fish and eel as well as crabs that grab hold. Your bamboo pole and a burlap sack along with some bait and a couple of hooks along with a low tide and that's all you need. Not very high tech but very effective. To show you how long we've been using this technique here is a picture of my great great grandfather on the left holding a shark and his trusty poke pole at Dillon's Beach in 1901. Notice the women holding the crabs they caught too. The little pregnant lady holding onto her hat is my great aunt Maude Crocker. Her son Roy who she is still carrying was born May 14, 1901. :lol: You should see the stacks of old photos we have from way back. Maybe that's why I became a photographer. Unfortunately I hardly ever get to be in the pictures. :lol: Posted Image

No that's not me! :lol: But we both catch the fish. :lol: I'm looking through hundreds of photos trying to find a picture of some of the 35 pound ling's the family has caught over the years. I think they're on another CD and I can't seem to find it. The clams we used to get from Tomales Bay were BIG too. :lol:

Both my Mom and Dad were raised in Vacaville and both use to tell stories of going over to Dillon Beach and fishing, clamming, etc. I believe they even had a cabin of some sort over there, but don't recall what ever happened to it. I also remember seeing a lot of great old pictures from their trips.

It's probably been ten years since I poke pole fished. But my dad's young neighbor took one of our old poles and went poke poling Memorial Weekend and caught fish. It was his first time and except for pictures and us telling him about it he thought we were pulling his leg. He's a believer now.That's cool Lynn. We still have our place on Ocean View Ave. down at Dillon's. Do you remember what street you may have had your place on? We may have been neighbors as it isn't a very big place. :lol:

A lot of those pole fishermen are going after Monkey Faced Cod. Kind of looks half eel half fish.

I'd be leery of eating anything called "Monkey Face"... :lol:

You're right Steve we just called them eels. But caught other cod, perch and rock fish. Those Monkey Buggers taste good! :lol:
