A Day On The Pursuit

The water is heating up, the sun is shinning, and the itch to fish is strong. So what's a girl to do? I decided to call my buddy, John Woodrum, Owner/Operator of the Pursuit out of 22nd Street Landing in San Pedro. In my opinion, it's the best full day fishing boat out of the LA/Long Beach area!

My husband and I jumped aboard on a Friday morning with Baja Fish Gear swag in hand to give out as a raffle to make the day more exciting. The 65-foot boat is great for local fishing and what I like best is the crew on board. On today's trip I was welcomed by deckhands Mike & Shawn, Ken in the Galley, and the rest of the crew. We had a great time, with Sand Bass & Barracuda chomping on the plastics, iron, and the live squid.

While I was soaking in the sun and meditated about how sweet life is I started wondering what type of useful content we could provide to our visitors and it dawned on me that a series of how-to's, directly from the deckhands perspective would be a good selection. So over the next few weeks, stayed tuned folks, we are going to be adding a collection of the most commonly asked questions and our deckhand buddies are going to answer the call.

In the meantime enjoy the first two commonly asked questions and see you on the water!
