Kayak Fishing for MONSTER California Halibut - Pre Fishing for the Estero Kayak Challenge

  • Published on:  6/6/2019
  • This past week we headed offshore near Cambria, California the day before the 5th annual Estero Kayak Challenge with some fellow Central Coast Kayak Fishing Anglers for some pre-fishing to find a pattern and depth that the Cabezon and Lingcod were biting at, was not disappointed with a hefty bycatch of a California Halibut that Joe Koenig was able to trick into eating his Swimbait. After we launched at Leffingwell landing we started looking for some reefs until we found one that had some fish willing to bite.

    Fished a bunch of different depths looking for fish to bite and finding them was not a problem. I also lost a giant Lingcod that I had in the kayak and slipped away before I was able to get a better grip on him.

    Stay tuned for next weeks video as we fish the Estero Kayak Challange and see what we catch.

    All the gear I use.
