......Next best thing to fishing is talking fishing with those that share your passion! HUGE thanks to @santaclaritacastingclub for allowing me to present my "Ghost Of The Coast" sightfishing for corbina seminar, last night. You guys were GREAT! Extra special thanks to @flyrodder_rudy for making it happen πŸ™ŒπŸŒŠπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜!

..........we locked onto roving packs of tarpon that would carefully creep out from under shadows of the mangroves, then EXPLODE through the bottom-darkening bait, then turn gently gliding back under the thick vegetative canopy. It took a couple of shots to get the timing right, but I laid a crossing shot in front of the nearest silvery cruiser and got HAMMERED and after an insane tug-of-war, we had our first of the day!.........πŸŒΏπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

Following a quick fray-removing retie, the panga crept back into position and then some knucklehead fires a wayward cast INTO the mangroves and the fly is now hung SOLID. At Bruce's direction, I grab my back up rod and flick a cast with maybe ten feet of line out and get absolutely CRUSHED by a another larger tarpon!  INSANE! That fish ended up being the largest of the day and was a wonderful test of the Orvis H2 ten weight and Galvan Grip's stopping and pulling power.πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄

AWESOMENESS

Day one flat light 
a few bones and jacks
We threw at some tailers
those permit were lax

Different plan today 
we ran for the border
The run was so smooth
but surely not shorter

In the distance Honduras
and Guatemala too
A quick right turn
as the sky went blue
.
And there they were 
rolling in a lake
fun-size tarpon
a bunch lipped by Blake

Pushing permit too
would follow and tip
But nothing you'd feel 
behind a long strip

Tomorrow might be different 
regardless so fun
Pray for northeast 
and plenty of sun

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˜

FOUR HUNDRED GRAINS

Peaceful calm navigating a dark foggy rocky abyss, it took all of one cast to jumpstart a slamming three hour tour getting smacked around by pugnacious calico bass. As the tide filled in, kept pounding away at the wall with the 10wt, waiting for a giant to climb on but settled on close to thirty, mostly footlongs, with a few chunkier. So fortunate to have a sweet year-round world class fishery minutes from home. Have a very nice weekend all πŸŽ£πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯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
πŸŒŠπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

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 .

πŸ”₯HOT FOR HOPPERSπŸ”₯
.
A short commute, I was so stoked to see that week's warming trend had those rubberlipped rascals perusing the floating mossy blankets, and though spooky, they loved a fake foam hopper skated gently along the edges. Such a fun way to catch them, they would slowly approach, slurp and ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!

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
