Was the ramp open for boat launching?
That water in the snake picture looks really muddy. Was that by the island?
First time I’ve seen a rail rod with a split grip. I would think that would be hard on your armpit when the rod is on the rail fighting a big fish...
I was there today too.
Started out with a bang with 3 chunkers in half an hour and a five pounder a little bit later. Then the bite just died.
I’ve seen that “Live Scope” fishing on TV. Doesn’t look like fun to me.
Back in the 80’s I used to keep a flat bottom tub in my back yard for dads. I had a few spots in Poway that were loaded with them. Used a big bait...
How did you release those 200+ more?
That looks like the dropper loop knot I use for bottom fishing except the knot is cinched down on the hook shank.
This is the one I’ve been using...
I love fishing the beach down in that area. You never know what you’re going to catch.
Nice cow cod. Where was that?
I fish the Intrepid a lot and it’s an awesome boat. Great crew and outstanding food. And they know how to put you on the fish.
Used it last week.
Those tooth marks on the sardine look like they came from a halibut. The area you were fishing has some big ones at times.
Just take a plastic spray bottle of fresh water and rinse off the salt with it at the end of each day.
At the end of the last day take the reels...
I’m with you. The longer rod also helps when you’re up in the bow where the rail is much wider. If leverage is an issue use the rail.
Many years ago we used to snag them around Shelter Island and sell them to the Oriental fish markets. 2 ounce torpedo and a couple of big trebles...
thanks for the info. I’m hitting the bay tomorrow so I’ll check it out.
Those are some toad bass. Nice job.
one question. How do you identify the clam beds on your electronics?
