If You Have Plans Of Going Fishing, Be Aware Of The Laws

If you’re an outdoorsy kind of person you’re, probably itching to go outside right now. You’ve been waiting for the weather to be perfect and with summer being finally here, it’s all happening. You’re ready to grab your camping equipment, fishing gear, and food for a picnic or two. This is the opportunity to breathe in fresh air and take in the scenic views. Fishing is one of the leisure activities that you think you can just go out and do.

As simple as fishing may sound, it is a bit more complicated. You have to know what kind of fish you’re fishing for, which determines what hook, bait, and weights to use. Trying to understand just the basics of fishing is a lot to handle, yet the sport itself seems so peaceful. Aside from understanding the basics of fishing, it’s important to also know the rules and laws about fishing in California.

Knowing where you are fishing is very important in California.

The state is divided up into districts with each district having its own sets of fishing laws. For example the North Coast District consists of the waters of Trinity, Humboldt, and Del Norte counties. In the North Coast district, there is a limit of five trout per day per person.

Within each district there is one general rule: If you are 16 or older, you must have a fishing license. Anyone who is younger doesn’t need a license to fish. In order to obtain a fishing license you must bring a valid form of identification, such as your birth certificate or driver’s license, to most sporting goods stores. Fishing licenses are very flexible and can be purchased for the day or the year. Once acquired, the license needs to be with you at all times when you are fishing.

Failing to have a fishing license can earn a person a small fine.

Fishing can be a peaceful sport. It may seem overwhelming at first and you may feel out of your league, but don’t stress. It is a peaceful activity once you get the hang of it. Fishing at some of the most beautiful places in California, and enjoying the views as well, will help just about anyone relax. Your life may be crazy, but once you castaway you’ll be humming a different tune.

 

Wine About It

Wine About It

Life is stressful and a wise meme once said that a glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away. Of course if you’re drinking wine, you should definitely be 21 or older and you should not be operating any kind of vehicle. Wine is a blessing at the end of the day. It’s almost like a warm cup of milk, except its fruitiness sings you to sleep. It’s also a super familiar beverage here in California because of the Wine Country that we have.

Wine Country in California goes hand in hand like champagne and France do. You can expect amazing wine tours in California like in Malibu, or go wine tasting in Napa Valley. Sipping fine wine is easy to do in California because of all the places that create their own wines. Creating a fine wine is a process and takes time. The best wineries usually grow their grapes locally and let’s face it, as Californians, we love keeping things local.

Wine tours in California can be a great escape. They usually take you through the process of growing the grape to creating wine itself. They also allow you to taste wine while exploring the vineyard. Some of the more popular wine tasting tours around are:

  • Napa and Sonoma Wine Country Tour
  • Napa Valley Hot-Air-Balloon Ride with Wine
  • Napa Valley Wine Train
  • Muir Woods Wine Town and Ferry
  • San Francisco Super Saver
  • Malibu Wine Safari

Wine is some people’s best friend, in a non-alcoholic way. After a long week at work or a stressful family event, sipping on a glass of wine is what some folks look forward to. Wine is one of those beverages that you have to sip. You can’t just down it. It is a slow drink, one that helps you relax. You can whine to your wine glass about your struggles.

Friends and family can gather around a good bottle of wine. It can be paired up with cheese, chocolate, and other meals. It goes hand and hand with most fancy dinners. The right bottle of wine can help loosen up a tough crowd. Don’t under estimate the power of a good bottle. With that being said, drinking too much wine will get you drunk just like drinking too much beer. It doesn’t matter how classy the drink is, when it has an alcohol content, you can get drunk from drinking too much.

If you find yourself drunk off the grapes, don’t drive home. Call a cab or give your keys to a sober friend. Drinking wine and driving is against the law, which can land you with a DUI or in car accident. DUIs can be a nasty ticket or land you in the drunk tank. If you manage to get into a car accident, your choice to drive could cost someone else their life.

California bring its residents many benefits, and one of them is some of the best wine in the nation. From touring the wine country, to sipping with friends around the table, wine can be enjoyed in many ways. The only time you should enjoy wine while in motion is when you’re on a tour and are not the one driving. Making a good choice in a bottle of wine is one thing. However, making the choice to protect your life and those lives around you is the most important decision you can make when it comes to wine.
