CORBINA DREAMS

Couldn't resist
Toes in the sand
Pools and troughs
Sure looked grand

Skinny and clear
Looked like June
But sixty degrees
Toes like prunes

Surely no tears
Lovin' our beach
So close to home
Thankful and sweet

So silvery friends 
Live without fear 
Stay cozy warm 
See ya next year

Good Morning All! Big surf the last couple days has our beloved California Corbina out of sorts as structure shifts around and with it food sources. Water temperature however has remained consistent with catches being made from San Diego County to Santa Monica and everywhere in-between. Many of the catches were made on FALLING afternoon tides when the clarity, visibility and water temp was optimum. Surf is projected to come down considerably by the middle of next week. Get out there while this weather window holds! If you are free, stop by and let's chat about this wonderful gamefish πŸ™Œ.πŸŒŠπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

THE LAST CAST

Now blowing at face chapping velocity, I reared back, took the shot and the bug went astray almost beaning the bean. Geez, it didn't spook. Stepped backwards as it crawled ahead and took another shot but it got blown off. Running out of real estate and time, kept backing up towards the tail end of the structure, I would have one last shot before it would become too shallow for the corbina to feed comfortably. Well the wind machine must have lost power momentarily as the bug landed exactly where it needed to be and she ATE. Nothing like a lucky last castπŸ™Œ.πŸŒŠπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

.........a quarter mile into the tip-toeing hunt, and the current running downhill, the right one came tacking towards me in a foot of water and I froze in my tracks, just as the shiny blue Helios flexed beautifully launching the fuzzy little Pepto Bismol-colored offering skyward and beyond. It was like Joe Montana leading Jerry Rice over the middle, and as it landed followed by a long adjusting strip, it dropped onto the plate and she launched forward. ZZZZZZZZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZZZZZ! One of my goals this year was to sightfish and land forty of these amazing creatures, and with this gorgeous twenty-three incher, that box can now be checked. So grateful to have the opportunity to pursue such a wonderfully challenging species so close to home πŸ™Œ.πŸŒŠπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

IT MAY BE OCTOBER, BUT IT SURE AIN'T OVER

An empty stretch of sand, toasty warm wavelets, azure skies, and a favorite wand, I closed my eyes and it felt like the endless summer. The first one came within minutes of arrival, accompanied by a flanking pair of buddies, perusing an ankle-deep flat fed by a little slightly deeper byway angling out and away. Not sure why, reached back and flopped the bug right beyond and between and the hungriest ate without hesitation on the first pull. A "teen" bean, it was feisty and fast and fit as it rocketed towards Catalina. On a day so filled with pain, it was comforting just to be able to go fishing. Peace πŸŒŠπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

CASTING AT SHADOWS

Fifteen past
It was almost dark 
An empty lot
So easy to park

No one out
Toes in the sand
Surf was warm
A toasty fan

Burning glare
Subtle little rut 
It told me to stay
I followed my gut

Staring down
Shadow came forth
Flicking cast
Angled kinda north

Two little pulls
the line went tight
Left hand set
It sure felt right

Racing to the sun
like a little truck
Stood there in shock
Unbelievable luck

Going on a hunch
September bones
When will it end
Nobody knows

Fun guiding Dave
We didn't see many
Surf temp dropped
He still learned plenty

Troughs and rips
Sand crabs galore
Reading conditions
Catch even more .

THEY'RE STILL AROUND

Relentless wind
Pounding swell
Awaiting new stucture 
It's gotta jell

Since last week
It shifted a mile
Corbs went with it
That made me smile

Love the challenge
So dark and dreary
Tide will turn
Don't get weary

Right on time
There they are
Keep your cool
It's not that far

Check behind
Coast is clear
Take the shot
Have no fear

Slurping eat
Splashy run
Just no quit
Having fun

This week's corb
Box is checked
Pelagics tomorrow
Catalina we'll trek

A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS

Right on time
They showed in the rip
Bump after bump
I thought I would flip

Finally a grab
A line burning run
Dodging the kelp
Chaotic but fun

Anne from UK
Was here for the summer
She snapped a quick pic
A silvery stunner

Resumed the hunt
Along came another
This one robust
A much bigger brother

Followed the bug
For at least eight feet
Bulging a wake 
Thru the watery sheet

Roostertailed spray
Heart skipped a beat
Backing got soaked
A front row seat

Darting and surging
She flopped ashore
Fins poking out
They're never a bore

Sue from Salt Lake
Yoga nearby
Shot like a pro
A brightening sky

Strolling the shallows
Corbina we seek
So very thankful
Start to the week

A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS Right on time They showed in the rip Bump after bump I thought I would flip Finally a grab A line burning run Dodging the kelp Chaotic but fun Anne from UK Was here for the summer She snapped a quick pic A silvery stunner Resumed the hunt Along came another This one robust A much bigger brother Followed the bug For at least eight feet Bulging a wake Thru the watery sheet Roostertailed spray Heart skipped a beat Backing got soaked A front row seat Darting and surging She flopped ashore Fins poking out They're never a bore Sue from Salt Lake Yoga nearby Shot like a pro A brightening sky Strolling the shallows Corbina we seek So very thankful Start to the week . . #socalflatsfishing  #corbinacoach  #ghostofthecoast  #galvanflyreels  #galvantorque  #galvanforlife  #orvisflyfishing  #orvisflyrods  #orvishelios  #helios2  #orvisrecon  #corbina  #corbinaonthefly  #corbinapatrol  #backyardbones  #surfinmerkin  #sightfishing  #worsethanpermit 
Been over two weeks since I last stalked corbina. Idaho, Montana and Catalina got in the way ha-ha πŸ˜‚. Hope to stumble across a few in structure like this next week πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ»πŸ˜

PALE RIDER

A short productive session, just so much fun chasing more of our backyard bones! I'm always amazed at how different they appear, this one a cool greenish-grey, riding onto the flat, and feeding aggressively. Perfectly proportioned and sliding in and out with each ankle-high push, lined up, a measuring cast, and CHA-CHING🌴🎣🐟😁

Still toying with the wispy two pound stuff, it took constant reminding to prevent breaking off, and even then, it happened again today. The first action of the day started off as a robust pair sliding along a shelf-like lip, and even at 30', their mouths could be seen blinking white indicating active feeding. Doing my best Michael Jackson impersonation, I moonwalked a rods length and fired the bug past and upslope, and the nearest one inhaled it! WOO-HOO-HOO! With a big boil, it launched for the outer sand bar like it's jerry curls were on fire then turning east towards a sand churning rip. No quit in this one, back and forth, but a lots of side pressure closed the deal in front of a pair of plastics-chucking halibut fisherman, one of whom was kind enough to do the honors πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

Found another stretch that was just full of life and seeking even more of a time, dropped down to 2# pound test, and after a bit of hunting the right one came calling and inhaled the grey-fibered fake. ZZZZZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZ, my favorite song emanated from that sturdy little Galvan as that dark-faced chunk headed for the outer sandbar............🎣🍻

With backs showing early and often, they would creep into the warm ankle depth shallows ever so carefully, feed delicately on their peanut-sized food, then glide back out deep to ride in the next set wave. Timing noted. And when they returned, the imitation crab was there resting and with a couple short twitches, the nearest of three flared its gills and I all I saw was white as the line went tight. ZZZZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZ, a harried run down the beach, and as we did, we pushed fish off the shoreline. Ran the same play three times, one released itself, and a pair touched home plate over the next hour. It was a fine morning of summertime saltwater sightfishing. I hope everyone has a very nice weekend πŸ€—!

FOUR AND A QUARTER

At 70+ degrees, and warmer than the brightening skies above, they finally began to show in the rippling current seams. An electrifying "tick" proved they wanted to play and three casts later the first and largest of the day was headed due west FAAAAAAAAAAAST and after a couple more runs, she pressed in for a close-up.........

BEAN THERE, NOT DONE THAT

A slightly delinquent start, arrived just as the balmy moon was going to bed, and the outside rollers began their shoreward push. Fifteen minutes in, here comes a large single surfing into a seam, forty foot open looped lob, line strip set really tight, a HUGE silver boil........ then gone. Strip in to find that the 20# leader butt loop gave way 🀀. First time for everything I guess, so got back to it, a bump here and a spook there, and finally a solid eat from a good one, immediately firing into the shallow rip, ZZZZZZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZZ-ZZZZZZZZZZ! Just great fun! With the sun peaking through the departing haze, a real plumper swam across the very sand crab beds that gave away its presence, the little pink bug embedded firmly in its lower left lip πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ»πŸ€™πŸ˜

Number twelve checked off, another couple more fleeing targets blasting across the flat, acting all wrong, and I thought the window had officially closed, but no, a slimly built 21 incher couldn't resist tailing on a few more crab nuggets just as the surf silted things up. BINGO, this one acted normally, running for and slugging it out in deeper water, and as luck would have it, it gave in just as a fellow fly fisher walked up and offered to snap a few for the memory banks. Have a nice weekend everyone 😁!

JUMP UP, JUMP UP, AND GET DOWN

A greylight start, warm ankle-deep wavelets, and a silvery back barely showing and headed west is how the session began and after a ridiculously long leading cast to mask the bug's splashdown, Ms. Corbina closed the gap. A couple of short twitches upon approach and CHOMP and this crazy critter went FULLY AIRBORNE on the hookset 😲!

NEWS FLASH!

On one of my "So Cal Flats Fishing" instructional trips, @craigerreese came oh so close this morning. After learning how to identify structure/positioning and seeing a handful of feeding corbina swirls and backs, Craig placed his casts exactly where they needed to be and BAM a pair of solid taps, one even showing its BIG silvery self! To say we were overly excited would be an understatement. We eventually succumbed to the onslaught of beachgoers and unmanageable high tide, but not before we left the sand with some exciting memories, increased knoweldge, and renewed respect for our amazing backyard bones. Get out there folks, the time is now 🎣🌊🐟🎯😁!

REAL MEN

They could not have grown up further apart, and yet their challenging life paths were strikingly similar. Growing up in a harsh sugar cane camp on Maui or the tough streets of Memphis, the results were the same and shaped their personalities in those early years. And yet over time, they, with so much admirable courage, transformed themselves into the respectful, compassionate, and kind men that we sat in the presence of in the twilight of their lives. With an open heart and eyes closed, I saw their tanned faces, my father in his green garden and Stan holding his putter afoot a green of a different kind. Finally finding footing upon cool damp sand, they guided my vision, relaxed my hold on the slender cork grip, as the colored string was directed towards the darkness, just as a beautifully special fish emerged from the shadows. I think of them often and am only grateful to have had these two remarkable men in my life. Dad and Stan, this Father's Day gift is for you. .

LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE

Figuring the age old adage, "Don't leave fish to find fish" didn't apply in the singular sense, I made plans to set foot upon an entirely new-to-me beach and so with the morning mirroring my favorite song, I enjoyed the silence. And then a wall of denial came calling as a river of red taillights formed beyond the dip below, a sheet of plywood- sized orange sign above flickering ONE LANE OPEN...... Knowing the incoming tide would be too high, I escaped to another fresh piece of sand and the stalk began, and whaddya know, some decent holding structure.......and a pair of players FEEDING! Wow, what luck! The little pink bug chugged along on the gravelly shelf and the nearest football-shaped corbina CLIMBED ON. Thirty minutes later it was too silted out, so I aimed the Sequoia for home. Always nice to throw one back on Throwback Thursday 😁!.

***NEXT SATURDAY*** .

A wonderfully beautiful species, here's a broad-shouldered 26.5" six pound model from a week ago, that was feeding in skinny water like a bonefish, fought with carp-like determination, and was as challenging as the wily permit. California Corbina have definitely begun their annual migration onto our SoCal beaches! Please plan on attending either of our "Ghost Of The Coast" seminars and learn the basics to successfully target this amazing species! 
When: Saturday June 11th @ 11:00am and 1:00pm

Where: Fishermen's Spot in Van Nuys

Hope to see all of you there 🐟🌊🎣🎯

California Corbina have definitely begun their annual migration onto our SoCal beaches! Please plan on attending either of our "Ghost Of The Coast" seminars and learn the basics to successfully target this amazing species! When: Saturday June 11th @ 11:00am and 1:00pm Where: Fishermen's Spot in Van Nuys Hope to see all of you there 🐟🌊🎣🎯 . #socalflatsfishing  #corbinacoach  #ghostofthecoast  #worldrecord  #galvanflyreels  #galvantorque  #galvanforlife  #orvisflyfishing  #orvisflyrods  #orvishelios  #orvisrecon  #corbina  #corbinaonthefly  #corbinapatrol  #backyardbones  #surfinmerkin  #sightfishing  #worsethanpermit 
Easier To See, Harder To Fool. Last summer's 3rd IGFA World Record 16# tippet enticed under bright sunny skies and super clean surf.

With over sixty participants, it was a packed house, and simply a wonderful morning to discuss our shared passion for California Corbina! I hope that everyone was able to leave with an improved understanding of where, when, and how to find and approach, as well as feed, these very special fish. We are so blessed to have our own "backyard bones" within minutes of our Southern California homes. Extra special thanks to store manager Kevin Bell for scheduling and promoting our "Ghost Of The Coast" seminar and to Brian Jackson for taking the time chronicle the event! Thank you again to all for attending and please enjoy the rest of your weekend 😁!

JUNE GLOOM, CORBINA BOOM!

Alighting like a small pebble, the fly dove to the sand, but was lost in the turbulence. I never saw it again......until the lead fish shook it's head trying to expel the offending fake! With so much wave-induced slack, a snappy scissor strike with the Recon sank the barb, and we were ON! ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! Exactly 25.5 inches (fork) and six Boga-sagging pounds, all smiles, this amazing creature was gently revived, paddling off to enjoy the rest of her Friday πŸŽ―πŸ»πŸ€™πŸ˜
