Last Sunday, I was at Alamitos Bay and I saw one of the fishing boats I used to take when I go ocean fishing return from a half day of fishing. It rekindled a desire in me to go ocean fishing again!
This is the boat returning from a half day of fishing
I observed most of the debarking fishermen did not have their gunny sacks filled with fish. This is not unusual at this particular landing. Their rates are low and the parking is free but their boats do not go as far and as deep as the other landings do for the big ones.
These are battery powered boats you can rent ($60/hour) to cruise the bay
I used to dream of owning a sailboat like that to sail across the Pacific Ocean. It is still a dream but it is not going to happen - I can't afford to own one, I do not know how to sail, and my wife will kill me before I kill myself sailing solo across the open sea LOL.
