Hey Matt,
Welcome aboard!  There are a lot of good kayaks out there, I would say try to demo them before you buy if at all possible.  I am not out to bash any brand, as there are kayaks for all budgets and you don't need anything super expensive to get into the sport.   For a little more than a lifetime you can usually find a good used one or even a new one that I think you would be happier with especially for saltwater applications.   I would highly recommend  to go see Eric or Tom at Central Coast Kayaks in Shell Beach. They know their stuff and have a lot of different brands of new and used kayaks, most of which you can Demo.  They will definitely take care of you.   Hope to see you on the water soon!

Howdy All,

New guy lurking about...thinking about getting a kayak.  Does anyone have any thoughts about the Lifetime Tamarack 10?  Thinking about using it for the central coast area.  Gets good reviews on you tube and such but I would like to hear from you folks.

Thanks in advance!

Matt

Regulations including MLPA / Re: California Outdoors DFW Q and A
« Last post by RHYAK on February 09, 2018, 06:36 PM »

Question:
I jumped on an open party lobster trip recently (their counts were high!). The crew members were measuring while all of us were watching up close. The 3" tool would drop over the carapace and if fairly tight, they claimed it to be a "keeper". When I politely asked them about this, they were adamant that these were legal bugs. Can you please describe proper measuring at the edge of a lobster's carapace? Can the tool drop in over the carapace edge, and if it's tight, then it's a legal bug? (Jim Kelley)
 
Answer:
The crew members were correct - an accurate measuring gauge should fit tightly in a straight line measurement on the lobster carapace from the rear edge of the eye socket to the rear edge of the body shell. When the lobster gauge is placed on the carapace, there should be no space at all between the gauge and the carapace. Please make sure the part of the gauge that is placed on the rear edge of the eye socket is on the hard part of the shell, not on the soft fleshy part where the eyes are. If there is any gap at all between the lobster carapace and the gauge, no matter how small, the lobster is too short and a citation could be issued. See California Code of Regulations Title 14, Section 29.90(c) for specific language.
 
Question:
I have a drone that is set up for fishing. I have a Cannon downrigger quick-release that I can attach to my drone. I would like to use my drone to troll or as a jig. When the fish strikes, the line would be pulled free from the drone, and I would fight and retrieve the fish with my rod and reel. Is that legal? (James K.)
 
Answer:
Under existing law, using a drone to jig tackle that remains connected to your rod and reel is not illegal so long as the drone is being legally flown in a legal area. Recognizing that regulations on drones are becoming tighter, especially in sensitive areas, you need to be familiar with all local ordinances or special jurisdictions as well. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has issued citations to drone operators for "harassing wildlife" in some areas of the state, so use common sense when flying and be aware of your fellow anglers.
 
Question:
Is it legal to hunt from a float tube for ducks and geese in Blythe? (Anonymous)
 
Answer:
Yes, during the season, you can hunt from a float tube for ducks and geese in Blythe, but you must mind where the state boundary is within the river so that you do not float into Arizona with unlawfully taken birds. There are some places where you may be on what appears to be the California side of the river while you are actually standing in Arizona. The belt-and-suspenders approach is to buy both a California resident hunting license and an Arizona non-resident hunting license, with each respective state duck stamp, and the federal migratory bird stamp.
 
Question:
Duck season just ended and although the last weekend was slow due to the unseasonably warm weather, the prior two weekends were good. I would like to take several friends to a restaurant where they will prepare my own ducks for us to eat. I have heard this is legal to do but I don't know what the requirements are to stay within the law. (Jake M., Sacramento)
 
Answer:
Fish and Game Code, Section 2015 provides the legal authorization and requirements. Although it is generally unlawful to possess a bird, mammal, fish, amphibian or reptile, that may not be legally sold, in a restaurant or other eating establishment, there are specific exceptions that would apply in your situation.
 
Those exceptions include: (1) A person who lawfully took or otherwise legally possessed the bird, mammal, fish, amphibian or reptile, (2) a person preparing the bird, mammal, fish, amphibian or reptile for consumption by the person who lawfully took or possessed it, or by that person and others, if the person who took or possessed it is present on the premises, or (3) a bird, mammal, fish, amphibian or reptile tagged with a signed statement from the person who took the bird, mammal, fish, amphibian or reptile. The statement must include that person's name and address, the date it was taken and the total number and kind taken.
 
You can enjoy your duck dinner at your favorite restaurant with your friends
