I use to fish for stripers when I was stationed at Alameda Naval Air Station in California. We fished off the Jetty on the base. Caught some nice ones when they were migrating up to the Delta for spawning. Fun fish to catch. In Pensacola, I had a boat I kept at the navy dock, and after work we would go out in the Gulf for a couple hours.....I miss the navy freebeie's. I mostly bass fish now, no saltwater here in Kentucky, but when I am in San Diego, the kid takes me out tuna fishing when he is not fishing some bass tournament......we fish for fun and food, love fresh tuna! Yea, I don't get up before daylight anymore to go fishing either, but I too remember the opening day trout season "idiocy". I thought that might have been your boat....you look comfortable in it!
