    In-laws had the kid, wife and I got home early from our weekly LA run, and I still had the itch. Sitting in a van for 5 hours had the legs feeling out of sorts, but hey, time to fish is time to fish. Can't waste that.
    Dusted off the baitcaster (literally. it was coated in dust) got it spooled up with some braid because I'm a masochist, and set out with it, my 24', and my spinning gear. Worked harbor for just over an hour before calling it, threw swimbaits on the baitcaster, and dropshotted some sandworms on my spinning gear. Sandworm produced a single bite, for a small spottie.
    Set off to my ultimately planned destination of Quivira Point, to use up the last of my current batch of shrimp and chum out some things my wife wants gone from the freezer. Stayed there for just over two hours, had darn near no action. Ended up breaking my 24' on a snag, ended up just tossing shrimp onto my spinning gear, as it was ready to go anyhow. Had an underspin tied on on the baitcaster, threw that while soaking the shrimp. Got one nice hit, but didn't stick. Shrimp ended up getting three bites. One that came off after a few seconds, another small sargo, and a rock wrasse coming in just under 10" that decided to eat the hook. Wrasse is gutted and bled sitting in my fridge for tonight, everyone else went back in the water.
    Of note, I saw 4 different species of ray today, all right up against the edge of the rocks at the surface. I can only surmise they were hunting for crabs/other crustaceans given the timing and area.

    I have had that happen a few times. I would've had some strongly held opinions about being called back, specially since everyone else in the family was asleep lol

    Only so many times she can hear that one. Been keeping the couch warm all day waiting for the appliance tech to show up, I could’ve easily had a sesh.

    Great thing for me is my phone is always on silent and my wife knows it. If im absorbed in what I'm doing, it tends to be a while lol

    I’ve seen some absolute tanker rays patrolling the banks lately. Just need some of those black crabs...

    Saw quite a few juvenile rays of various flavors. Couple big ones mixed in though.
