    Restaurants by the lighthouse?

    El Capitan is a good one, but we used to have another choice. The Lighthouse closed or was sold and renamed something about vino and pan, and the new one did not receive good reviews and had folded when we were down there a year ago. Has it re-opened under a new name and management? And if...

    I've been buying Shellure ball bearing swivels through Amazon. When a fish broke my 80 lb swivel I upsized to 127 lbs, but I'm still not confident. What do you guys buy for the big boys?

    Fish identification

    Just when I think I've got these SOC fish and their multiple names figured out, something happens to make me doubt myself. Is this a sardinero? Is this a leopard grouper? Or are leopard groupers and sardineros one and the same? And if so, which is which, and what's the other one...

    If memory serves me right, there's a shack at the estuary beyond Las Conchas where locals sell clams. There might also be clams at the fish market, and I suppose I could gather my own. Are clams around Rocky Point fairly plentiful and good to eat?
