The wife and I are spending the weekend in Monterey, CA. My brother-in-law and I slid off to the pier to do some fishing. We were throwing big chunks of sardines and squid on carolina rigs like I'd do back home. I had visions of strange saltwater fish I'd never seen before, or maybe a ray or shark. Instead, I caught 2 starfish:smile2: I finally noticed locals were all throwing sabiki rigs for smelt, at that point it dawned on me that the best I was probably gonna do was the starfish:smile2: Still a good time, though.
