New Old Guy

Howdy folks, I've been lurking around this forum this past week and enjoying a lot of good information you all share. This is a great forum! The DW and I have a 5 year plan now ahead of us we are working towards. We'll see how it goes. I figure I'll work 5 more years and then be on a year to year plan if things don't pan out as planned?
I have a 2% DB pension with Calpers with the local Gov. agency I work for. I am closing in on 26 years now so its time to get down to some serious planning at this point.
Ciao, fishNfool

Ahhh, I haven't tried that. Do you fish in protected waters, or out on the coast? My back gets sore after about a half hour on our kayak, so I've never had the urge to stay out longer and fish. I did go out (about 10 miles straight out) on a 2' wide traditional outrigger fishing boat earlier this year to fish for dorado. It wasn't much bigger than a kayak. Caught 10 small ones in the 5lb range on hand lines. Still got a sore back though.
