bare bones basics 4 NorCal coast

I have a CA fishing license so I can crab from kayaks.

I am interested in perhaps trying some hand line fishing, often during coastal camping trips to see if I can catch some fresh fish to expand on my dinner options. Usually northern California coastal waters.

I am more of a touring guy, so have touring/sea kayaks, not traditional SOT fishing rigs. And I am looking to keep this bare bones - so more along the line of drop line, not fishing rods.

What gear and methods should I try? What fish should I be targeting (rock fish, halibut, etc.)?


Have you
checked here-

Right in your neck of the waters.

yeah, but
Bit embarrassed to post there, as they (as with most groups) seem to be very equipment focused, where I really want to stay minimalistic.
