Im in the SF Bay Area. We can pretty much fish year round in the northern cal lakes. Im retired on disability soi I can fish when ever. Currentl I cant fish due to my boat is at my sis n laws house that is in Paradise Ca. (Remember the Camp fire?) Well her house survived and from what pictures I have seen so has my boat. All the homes around her burned to the ground. We cant get in yet as its still dangerous due to down trees and power lines.

Im an ex Air Force Military Working Dog Handler. I started with Shepherds in 1974.

The best Florida Man video is this:


Also, there was the time when Florida Man called the cops to tell them he thinks his smack dealer shorted him on his product.

Florida Man is real, and he is out there.

... is Marcos the infamous Florida Man?
