Angler Bio

Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Wolf, otherwise known as Raul

I am by no means an "expert" angler, but I truly enjoy the outdoors and all that it has to offer! What could be better than spending a day on the water at any of the beautiful lakes that we here in California are so lucky to have. If saltwater fishing is your weakness, look no further than our grand Pacific Ocean, it is truly the most spectacular and diverse fishery in the world!

I fish both fresh & saltwater, but Pier fishing is my preferred game! I soon became aware that it was much more than just another "fishing website". The members are truly eclectic and the site is made up of many types of people and personalities. Like many other members, I soon developed friendships that grew directly from all over,. and in return I felt I needed to give something back.

Thanks For Fishing....

Fish Baitt,..

We encourages all of our members to practice "Catch & Release" whenever & wherever possible and to follow all California Department of Fish & Game Rules & Regulations.

We also understand that for some anglers, keeping a fish to eat is the ideal way to end a day spent fishing. In fisheries where the stocks are responsibly managed & maintained, such as "pay lakes", this is not a problem with certain species, however an increasing number of anglers now prefer to return their catch to the water. They do this to help minimize the impact on the fish they so love to catch.

In many cases, releasing fish back to the water helps ensure that they mature and maybe even eventually spawn, which in turn helps to maintain a healthy fishery for future generations of anglers to enjoy.

In California for example, Largemouth Bass are not stocked by the state, and "Catch & Release" fishing is just one way to help maintain a good, healthy population of this particular freshwater species in our opinion.

When practicing "Catch & Release", anglers can easily take a few basic steps to help the survival of released fish. Many unintentional injuries and deaths can be prevented by following these simple handling rules for fish you intend to release:

• Be attentive and set the hook immediately to stop the fish from swallowing the hook.

• If the hook is swallowed completely and there is no way to safely remove the hook, cut the line off as close to the hook as possible and then release the fish. Never use force to remove a hook.

• Whenever possible, leave the fish in the water while removing the hook. If you need to remove the fish from the water, wet your hands in order to protect the mucous layer on the outside of the fish.

• Never use the gills or eyes to hold the fish. On larger fish, always try to support their weight properly with both hands.

• Revive fatigued fish by supporting them in a swimming position in the water and gently move them back and forth to help until they swim off on their own.

• Buy & use a knot-less landing net. They’re less damaging to the fish and help prevent tangled hooks.

• If you want to photograph your fish, have your camera ready, as the less time the fish is out the water the better.

• Use barb-less hooks whenever & wherever possible.

• Use an "unhooking mat" of a suitable size for your type of fishing, and never lay a fish on the ground.

• Protect our fisheries for future generations of anglers by respecting our fragile environment and all that it offers us every day.

• Protect our fisheries for future generations of anglers by respecting our fragile environment and all that it offers us every day.

• Last but not least....... leave your fishing spot cleaner than when you arrived.
