I enjoy catfishing down here in the Bay Area.  My FIL go to Lake Del Valle. 

I've also done a season of Salmon up on the delta.  Got a nice 17 pound chrome salmon :)

This is the biggest large mouth I've caught in this lake in Northeastern WA.  My parents have owned a place up here since I was 4, and the average size large mouth is around 2-3 pounds, but this past year a few have been caught that were upwards of 8 pounds.  This dude was just shy of 6.  My first day up there for over a year and I managed to land it.  We released him back shortly after taking pics.

Caught it on a Wave Worm.  We use to always use live nightcrawlers when I spent my summers up there as a kid, but I guess over the past two years or so my dad has converted over to these and still kills it with the bass..... clearly Wink

I wanna go fishing really bad after looking through all these pics. I went last weekend, but it was super windy and we only caught a couple of catfish. Think I'm gonna try to go hit up a nice striper spot this weekend.

me?  that's a legit boat, not a skiff.  i live in juneau.. the pictures from on the boat were out of cross sound near deer harbor, in lisianski inlet, and around elfin cove.

edit: oh, i bet you meant the pictures from the first post i made.  that's my dads old skiff, still in juneau.. those pictures are all in the waters around juneau.

i'm not big into fishing, only been a few times.
in Benicia (in Bay Area), I've caught a 46in... striper... forgot what it actually was could be a sturgeon, but it was exciting cause it was my first catch and it was big for me and my bait was way the hell out there. Brought it to a donut shop in Vallejo and they gave me endless boxes of donuts for a month. Sooner or later, I realized that they serve burgers and fish and chips for lunch. LoL. I'll never knew or have eaten their fish and chips but their donuts are bomb.
At Berkeley Pier, I went to fish with a couple buddies. They were very experienced, and I witness them and other guys catching sting-rays, hammer sharks, and all kind of other fishies. It was an eye opener for me. And catching a sting-ray is totally different than other fishes due to the way they swim. He let me reel em in for a bit.
got onto a fishing boat to go out to the bay from fisherman's wharf in sf. all we caught were halibuts but we got a lot.

boat getting ready for the season at my dad's house.  cleaned off a bunch of barnacles and their glue, cleaning everything else, and fixing the kicker and mount that a crab boat smashed into this winter.  first trip is to lituya.. so stoked.  gonna try to find ourselves a new king spot on the outer coast, between cross sound and lituya


here's where we go. doesn't seem very far but it's almost a half day journey to cross sound in the boat.  our normal drag for king salmon is marked, so this time we're gonna try going up the north coast toward lituya and the insanely huge fairweather mountain range.

also, if you haven't heard of lituya bay, it's the place where the biggest recorded wave in history occurred.  i've wanted to go there since i first learned about it when i was a lot younger. it's really not far north up the outer coast from where we normally go, but it can get nasty and we've just never done the trip. so excited.

the wave was over 1700 feet high, and swiped off all the trees from the mountain sides in the bay. for some comparison, the empire state building is under 1500 feet tall. even crazier, there were a few boats in there at the time.. one with a father and son, or grandpa or something like that, and the wave carried them up and over the bar at the entrance and placed them back out in the open ocean.. alive. biggest wave ever surfed?

target is the catalina white sea bass.  i need to get a rod and reel...  any suggestions?  been doing some research, looks like i'll need something with a 25~30 line weight rod.

copy/pasted

back on land. lituya bay was the most amazing place i've ever been, with the roughest seas i've ever experienced on the way there. the seraphina usually cruises at around 25kt... we couldn't safely do much more than the 6kt we were doing. surfed a wave through the entrance during the ebb tide, the worst time to do it (not much of a choice at the time), as a tightly packed swell with chop on top was coming from the side and i was looking UP at the peak while out on the back deck. in retrospect, i don't think i/we have ever been closer to dying... but don't get me wrong, it was a great thrill and a hell of an experience and i'd do it again in a heartbeat. had a few moments dead in the water on the coast at icy point as well, which was a bit of a hair raiser. rest of the trip was great. sleeping in bays on the outer coast looking over the greatest and most vast & endless feature of our planet is always humbling, as were the landscapes in lituya, paired with the knowledge of the bay's harsh past and seeing it with my own eyes. in closing, i don't want to be back home. i find it hard to make sense of many things in "civilized" life when i come back from the ocean. and yes of course, everything was thoroughly documented in photos and on film, though nothing could be done justice, as that would be impossible. onward...

so many to go through, but here's two for now, shot as we were fishing south of cross sound near deer harbor. a large pod of 40-50 orca passed near our boat, backed by the fairweathers shooting above 15,000ft from the ocean.  the first photo is after they passed so it was shot in the other direction.  i wanted a better photo of them in front of the range more than anything, but it didn't happen.

here are a few of my favorites

black bear in torch bay on the way to lituya


dylan checking out the huge rock face below the mountains at the head of lituya


mountains at the back of the bay that rise over 8,000ft from the water


surf waves from the swell coming up over the shallow bar at the entrance, as we left the bay at 4am


dylan with the only fish of the trip.  super slow fishing...


an un-shrunken close up of the pair of orcas


not that stoked on the photo on my part, but pretty cool to have captured.. an orca breaches in the distance while we were fishing


the view from deer harbor on our second night. it's not an actual harbor, just a small natural bay on the coast with a view of the open ocean.  probably my favorite place i've ever slept.  so peaceful.


a beautiful morning on our final day
