Ocean on your left

5 posts in this topic

What does the phrase "the ocean is on your left" mean for those living in California? Any truth to this? I've heard this phrase said a few times. I don't know anyone from there or never been there. Seems to me if you are facing South how can the ocean be on your left. confused.gif Oh well, just call me naive frown.gif . Makes for good conversation.

hey bucket, I believe it's the same as saying drive north if the land it n/s. Or Ocean on your R if you should drive south if you were in LA.

I lived in California also, and I always thought it was part of giving directions to people.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
