The wife is the avid fisherman. I enjoy the technical side of boating - how the boat works, the systems, the electronics, etc. Must be the engineer in me.

She enjoys trolling inside the breakwater when the bonito are this far north. Most are cleaned and ready for sushi before we get back to the dock. We've drifted inside the breakwater and caught bass and halibut, and once a rock fish. Had quite a few bites just outside Cabrillo in the free anchorage area.

As far as heading towards the Islands, she trolls with a larger lure. Sometimes with a weight. At the islands we'll drift and catch bonito or bass. Had a bit of luck in Two Harbors. That's our favorite place so far.

Squid seems to work best for us, although she has fished with sardines, too. I caught a bass once on an artificial lure. One of those that come packed in scented oil.

If I can get her to join in here I'll have her add more. She's become quite the fishing addict as of late.
