Midnight monster calicos, wading for Belizean tarpon and golden-plated Idaho mirrors, screaming backyard yellows and bonito, massive Cajun reds, paranoid Oahu bones, and ghostly world record corbina, they all couldn't top my all-time best catch. The others all went home in '17 but no way she's gettin' released! πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ™ŒπŸ’•πŸš£β€β™‚οΈπŸŒŠπŸ€™ .

Have a FISHY 2018 everyone!

On a hunch, checked a section as the tide went flat and found a bunch of surface-feeding speedsters that looked a lot like bonito but smaller. Ha-ha! Landed double handfuls of those frenetic clouser eaters as they pushed bait on top and on the meter. For a bit it felt a little like summer. Hit another zone trying to round up a barracuda to complete the 3B's slam, but it wasn't to be. Still stoked, just another amazing Friday on Lake Pacific. Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸŸπŸŒŠπŸŒ’πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

Took all of two casts before the first one climbed on with plenty of legal calicos chomping a variety of crawly offerings, kept peppering those kelp lanes hoping for the ONE. An hour and half into the session, BOOM, as the wiggly sculpin is SLAMMED on its plunging rock-bumping swing, almost yanking the H2 ten weight out of my numbing cold grip. A three second thrill, seriously HEAVY downward tailbeat thumping then the buried rod tip goes horizontal as the hook pulls. UGH. Deep breath, then drove to another stretch for more of the same fun grade in mostly 59.2 degree dirty green flows πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸŸπŸŒŠπŸŒ’πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

Facing into a stunning sunset, we started our trip with a flurry of grabs then after a lull we'd hammer another group of willing biters. And so the night went, FUN! Then it happened. About mid-trip, the H2 got rocked hard, then I do everything I can to grip the cold wet slippery fly line under a seriously heavy load. Thump-thump-thump, the tug-of-war rages on steering it away from the jagged obstacle course, and finally it is within sight. Dave reaches way out and in one swoosh, he scoops it up. We both stare into the net in absolute awe. Perfect in every way, not a single mark on her, we snapped a couple, then quickly released her back into the ocean, under an overhead full moon. Decades old, much too precious to kill, she rocketed away healthy.πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

DARK WET BITING
.
From the first chuck, it was fast and furious on straight calicos, most of the grabs on crashdown. BOING! SMASH! GRAB! Easy couple dozen later, still couldn't get past to the bigguns that live there so I left 'em biting. Went looking for a kicker but even more of that same nice grade in a blowing shower. Fine start to the weekπŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸŒŠπŸŒ§πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

Stop number two
biters last trip
Grab after grab 
most no strip

Rocky bottom marked 
gathered up good
Kelp tipping current 
way that it should

A few splashy boils
through silvery sheen
Followers too
orangey clean

My black is back. Stoked to have my first Galvan Torque 6 beside its newer more colorful siblings.  Small yet powerful, it finally went in for service after three years of constant use and exactly (580) carp plus plenty of bonefish, yellowtail,, barracuda, bonito, corbina, and other line-screaming species. Built to last? Oh yeah πŸ˜‰!
