“I’ve only fished in the Newport Beach Back Bay. The fish there are mostly small spotted bass which I released. See picture below on my first fishing trip.
I don’t plan to fish in the ocean except bays and harbors this year. Too many Great White sightings from La Jolla to Avila Beach. However, I’ll still paddle in the bays and harbors for exercise, and troll while doing so.
I’m thinking of going up to the Eastern Sierra for trout fishing. It’s about 350 miles north from where I live.
