it's nothing like a near death experience (more on that later in the week) to help put things in a little perspective.  ed decided that i work to hard and that i needed to go fishing.  he also checked the tides and said that the evening tides were perfect in cayucos last night, so we headed down yesterday afternoon and caught the evening tide.  daughter allison and nephew richie also joined us.  eddie likes to fish "old school." 

so that's how we rolled!  check it out.  a dozen nice perch, one legal striper and a bunch of shorts.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy

Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!

Hell, if I'd jumped on all the dames I'm supposed to have jumped on, I'd have had no time to go fishing.

My family has surf fished the Central Coast from San Simeon South to Cayucos for many years.

Although my Dad surf fished -- he caught very little, probably because he did not use Ed's techniques.    

He used to use sand crabs we dug up.

However, he tried for many years --

I have plenty of gear, sinkers, hooks -- think this is something we need to get into this year.

But I have never surf fished.

Between Ed and Jonathan -- I think I might be able to catch a few and learn in the process.

This picture in the lower left is my Grandma Lena in 1955 -- catching a Perch at San Simeon at age 71.

I was just 3 -- but somehow I remember that event and Dad taking the pic with an old flip up Camera.

She was born in Wellington, Ohio -- came to the West Coast in a Wagon train at 5 -- married my grandfather who was a foreman for one of the string of Hearst Cattle ranches up and down the Coast Ranges.  Raised 6 boys.  Taught me everything important in life -- except how to surf fish!

Thanks for the great tips, Ed!

Best,

Fred

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”
