Fishing the Pipe

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

Fishing the pipeline   If you’ve kayak fished Dana Point very much, you’ve probably heard people talking about “the pipe”.  There’s a secondary waste water treatment plant in the San Juan Creek bed just upstream from Doheny State Beach.  The treated waste water is pumped off shore through a 10,550 foot pipe under Doheny State Beach.  The pipe runs in a SSW direction out to about a 100 foot depth and then the diffuser runs another 1272 feet in a NW direction. The majority of this pipe is buried in […]

April FWF Tournament Winner

By: | Tags: , , | Comments: 0

The 1st Fishing with Friends (FWF) Tournament of 2014 took place April 18th.  We had a great turnout.  15 Anglers showed up primed and ready to fish.  Everyone wanting to fish live bait was a little discouraged, thinking that the only bait available was going to be the same MONSTER sardines that they’d carried for the previous week.  Luckily, there were some well cured anchovies, about 4-5″.  The sand bass loved them!  The pipeline was very productive, but the guys fishing the point and on shore off Doheny had to […]

Kayak Live Bait Scoops Dana Point

By: | Tags: , , | Comments: 0

Live bait is one of those commodities that once were reserved for the big sport fishing boats and private boaters, 100+ gallon tanks, chocked full of well-cured fin bait.  While there are now many different options out there for kayak fisherman to carry self-sustained bait tanks on their kayak, that’s really not what I want to talk about; it’s how to fill the bait tank with quality bait. Most of the local harbors strictly cater to the big boats and the private boats.  A $25 “Half-Scoop” of bait overwhelm any […]
