Readers of TLA,
I’ve been thinking about this idea for awhile now, and have decided to execute it this year(Based on participation). The California Halibut season is quickly approaching and I would like to hold my first ever Fish and learn.
The purpose of the Fish and Learn is to provide an avenue for new or seasoned kayak fishing Anglers to get together to FISH and LEARN. I have learned many hard lessons as a season angler and I feel that it is time to pass this knowledge along.Come Fish, Come Chill, Come Learn.

Date is TBD based on participation. I am thinking (Mid-April to Early May). If you are interested please comment below.. If there is enough interest i will organize and move forward. This post will be updated accordingly.
Update: It seems like there is enough interest to move forward with this. Looking at the tide charts and moon phases, It looks like Saturday May 12, 2018 is the best date. I will set up a small event registry in the events section for those wishing to participate.
