Where In The World is...

... OC??? Been in the bay area for several days. All's fine and Steve, Tracy and Nolan are having fun. Steve says he's dropped 10 to 20 years and 25 lbs. The shot down to the bay area from Westport WA was not ideal from a sailing perspective but had it's rewards with "thousands" of dolphins surfing in 12 foot, phospherecent swells at night and whales serenading him. They are planning on going up into the delta for some west coast striper fishing in a few days. Tracy's working on the web site and they hope to have it up shortly.

Thanks Fred for posting our blog site. MY wife Tracy has done a great job on it so far. This Wifi stuff is really pretty primative with poor connections and so many dropped connections. But we are getting better at it and improving our equipment all the time.
Our trip up the Delta was real fine with strippers everywhere and also so many sturgen jumping all over the place. If anyone will be spending time in the San Francisco area you should try the fishing in the delta region. Not as great as Cape Cod or the East coast stripper fishing but real different country to fish in. It is like a mix of Wyoming ranch land and New Orleans Mississippi delta. there are a lot of folks from the M-delta living out this way from the sounds of the very southern drawls one encounters when asking about the fishing. There seems to be no sight fishing even on the miles of flats they have out here. There are whole bays that are 3 miles long and 3 miles wide that only have 1 to 2 feet of water on them at low tide. Tons of strippers but no crashing bait or bird activitty. Stripper fishing here is more like large mouth bass fishing casting into rocky nareas and around the many slough drainages.

We will leave the SF area early next week if we get a weather window and head south. Half Moon Bay, Channel Islands, Hearst Castle then San Diago. November will bring the end of the Hurricane Season in Mexico and we are looking forward to warm nights, Gin & Tonics, more of them anyway and some really good fly fishing and surfing.

Here's a couple of pics from the blog. Nolan's first striper and OC dancing at the helm. I think I remember that guy and those moves from the Casino in Falmouth Hieghts some 35 years ago.

Really Fred dancing to old surf music on passage is our way of life. Still in bay area because of weather windows. Expecting seas of 20 to 30 feet at 14 seconds so we will sit tight. There is always something to do in the San Fran area like fishing for Leopard Sharks and going to the modern art museum. I'm really getting the itch to fly fish in waters warmer down Mexico way. I keep looking at the weather maps and by god it's winter up in the north pacific time to get out of here. Once we get around Cape Conception life will be smoother.
Glad to hear the stripas on the cape are still around mean while the strippers as they are called here are hard to find outside the delta area.

Hokahay Steve

Hey Steve when I was in the Navy training to get ready to head over to Viet Nam we spent a lot of time running around in the sloughs and back channels from the "Bay" up to and beyond Vallejo I saw those strippers everyday but for some reason on weekends I would grab a $50 flight to Sea Tac and go watersking on the OP with friends several named Mary.
Just got back from my first round over in the Snake country The mob at the Corral has co ntinued to grow FYI.
I had a great time even fished with the Pescaphile for a few days and had camp together at Hell's Gate in Lewiston. We will keep an eye on the Sail Blog keep checking in here too.
What ever happdned to $50 flights???

Moonlight,
Boy I can picture you crazy navy boys way back in 69 sceaming through mile after mile of the Delta in your gun boats. As for 50 dollar flights you got a better chance of being called back in the service. Glad to hear the Snake is the Snake, say hello to everyone and send me an e-mail or pm on how fishing is. We will be getting a window on Monday and are really ready to get out of San Fran our first major destination completed. Better adventures are ahead.

Inspiring, to say the least.

I think our lives are defined by the sum of our ventures into the unknown.

That little digital dot at the Equator and out in the middle of the biggest thing in our world the Pacific Ocean is pretty hard to wrap my head around. Those three are on a voyage of dicovery for sure.

I love to craft words, but when I read Tracy's I see I am just a beginner! She has an exquisite way with words... and the adventure speaks for itself.

Inspired this Sat AM,
Juro
