If everything goes right I will be fishing that area on Sunday. I can do Leo if people are committed to going. Otherwise I will be at deer creek road.
On a side not I just got the 2018 outback and will be putting my Malibu stealth 12 up for sale soon.
Let me know if you can make Sunday

If the surf is down, 9/10 Iíll try Leo Carrillo. I did some scouting yesterday on my motorcycle, checking all the launch spots from Pescador to Pt Magu. The surf was up, I saw one pickup with a Hobie sticker near the LC parking lot underpass.

Iím in the market for smaller kayak for the purpose of difficult beach launches. I prefer pedal though, my shoulder isnít doing too good.

Im in for Leo this coming Sunday. What time and it will be my first time trying to surf launch the PA 12. I put the Hobie trax wheels today and man the thing is a beast.

What time do we meet and what is the suggested best way to get my kayak to the water?

Surf report looks good so far.

After moving my PA12 onto wheels and trying to move on concrete it was a PITA. I can't imaging lugging it down a set of broken stairs or the steep access we have to local beaches in Malibu.

Surf looks to be 1-2 foot and the wind should be good.
I am fishing on Sunday so if there is anyone wanting to try Leo and needs a buddy let me know. Otherwise I will be at deer creek rd.

Red X is parking.
Red line is path to a dirt ramp by bathrooms.
Yellow line is path to launch area
Yellow X is launch site.
Two people helping drag the kayak thru soft sand should be a problem.
This will be my first surf launch in a hobie outback so it should be interesting.
Also I donít have sand tires for it so itís going to be a chore for me.
You going I will be there.

I'll commit to Sunday at Leo. I went on the Erna B yesterday and we hit county line, deer creek, Leo and past Leo a bit. Was mostly smalls but a lot of calico action. One guy got a nice sheephead at county line and there were a few nice fat calicos. The captain lost his trying to jerk it up into the boat, think it was the nicest one I saw all day too.

The kelp looked real healthy just to the north of Leo, so may launch and head that way in front of the beach parking area.

Also, if your yaks will fit on my DIY kayak cart it has wheeleez, We can take turns going through the sand. I read a lot of good things about the c-tug cart with the sand wheels as well if your looking for something. But I do like the custom fit of mine and the wheeleez just float on our soft sand.

Looking forward to it. Tomorrow will be prep day, replacing all of my tube baits, net, etc. after my issue with the sailboat last week.

What would you guys say are the best options for catching fish there? Small hammers are what I usually fish with.

I catch a lot with big hammers there, the small ones, and have recently been having luck with red crab and mint hookup baits. I think most soft bodies will do well there.

Iíve been using hook up baits, and a local variant.

The mint blue and red crab 5/8 or 1oz were the ticket that day.

I can speak for those C-Tugs with the sand wheels. Its held my Outback loaded up quite nicely. Only downside it you have to lift your yak onto them.

I've seen a lot of cool ideas with bungees for the scupper hole style carts where you just lift up on the back and they go in on their own.

Same concept with the Landing gear styles.

But as far as strap style carts go, this things a beast, breaks down quickly for storage, and is way lighter then most carts like it.
