So stoked with this season's first double digit slob. Such a great eat as she was crawling thru inches of water grubbing on who knows what. Super clean fish inhaled the tan/white Loco Moco and splashed the backing too πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸŽ―πŸ˜†

FOGGY FIX

Shortened window
left before eight
Gave it a shot
drove mostly straight

Searched around
looking for sign
Cruiser found
clock said nine

Soft open loop 
laid it down
Came and looked 
but only frowned

Searched some more
mud field away
There she was
looking to play

Different approach
deadstick steady
Swooshing tail
rough and ready

Quick Tuesday fix
back to tying
Posed for a pic
no falsifying

HEATWAVE HIJINX

Crossing like glass
sunrise stellar 
Beautiful ride
foaming propeller

Twas a slow start
eventually they came
Birds formed up
bonito the same .
.
Jumped to attention
flies drifted back
Fast to a double
we're under attack

Below  the surface
something with white
Drags were smoking
bending so right

Tried the popper
looked so alive 
Fish said uh-uh
none of that jive

Jeff's a crack up
such good times
Catching these bones
shiny as dimes

Hard to believe
it's eighty degrees
Fishing in shorts
on flat calm seas

It's never to early to talk CORBINA! Just a heads up that I'll be conducting my updated "Ghost of the Coast" sightfishing for corbina seminar during The Fly Stop's Annual Fair on March 17, 2018. The final schedule of seminars/times will be published soon. If you're an avid carp angler or just looking to get your feet wet in the surf, please plan on attending. See all of you there πŸ™Œ.πŸŒŠπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

ISLAND IN THE FOG

More amazing times at lushly rugged Santa Catalina Island! Brian Faini slamming 'em with some fresh synthetic ties while I focused on explosive topwater action with a new foam-headed slider assembled only two hours prior. We had more slamming doubles than singles followed by those always blazing runs that bonito are known for ZZZZZZZZZZZZ - ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ - ZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!! Kept exploring peaceful empty Wintertime conditions, eventually with the midday breeze building to a froth, we aimed the bow for home. Beyond the protective cloud-crested lee, we came upon only a stone's throw away, the misty spouting immense backs and pushes of majestic grey whales as they headed south for Magdalena Bay. Fine angling, wonderful sights, and great company, hoping everyone has a terrific weekend πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸŒΏπŸŒŠπŸ˜† .

Kicked off '18 with a short search for those pugnacious calicos and found a bunch, mostly littles. Finally found a good one that shredded the leader and hammered the ten weight but it eventually found the deck after one heck of a tussle. Conditions went away, so a little tour of the premises, and BINGO. Always welcome, capped things off with a bait-scattering school of bonito that loved a fast-stripped Clouser! πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸŒŠπŸŒ’πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

MUY BONITO

A gentlemen's start time, some new gear, and a bountiful sun-kissed island, it was one helluva Friday. @flyrodder_rudy and I pulled up to the first stop and BINGO we're bent deep on a couple of ripper bonies only to be greeted by the impenetrable wall of fur, our best fish of the day reduced to a rudderless stump. UGH. Instead of donating more to the sea lions, we headed for another edge and scraped up a few more without being pestered and though it took awhile, we found the mother lode and they got on us good until it was time to leave πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸŒΏπŸŒŠπŸ˜†

SEE CATCH REPEAT

Holiday traffic
take a deep sigh 
Eighty minute drive
a workable sky

Crew was out
murky river mess
Spooked a few
hooked even less

Shook the rust
got on the board
Sure felt solid
pedal to floor
.
Feelin' mo betta
made a short move
Stacked up gumming
right in the groove

Two three four
landed all five
All cookie cutter
fight so alive

Lunch time break 
eyeballed the rest
Enough was enough
feeling so blessed

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

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€—

When it comes to fishing the surf, you need a reel you can count on. One that can handle salty submersion and gritty sand all day and will perform without question.... I’ve put these Grips to the test and have never been let down. That’s why I choose Galvan, what about you? πŸ’ͺ🏻#bombproof #bestinthegame #galvanforlife

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€—

A couple hours disappeared as we checked another stretch and just before lunch it happened. Not sure of its size, Greg picks up this approaching target, at least a double fly line away, pushing a bow wake tight to the bank.....FAST. Closing the gap, my only shot is a short backcast and I promptly misguide the bug up onto the grass just as the red rolls on its side feeding on minnows. A long strip and the bug falls into the water and the big girl races forward and ATTACKS! 🎣🐑🌿🌊😁

Back in May
last time here
Months in the salt
time to switch gear

Two hour trip
geez it was tough
Spooked a couple
going to be rough

Clock winding down
found the right one
Mugging some weeds
Setting low sun

A tipping eat
sure was fun 
Shot downstream
a screaming run

Nice to have options
Salt or fresh tuggers
Downtown L.A.
carp in the gutters
