    3 Days of skunks at the Lagoon. Lots of bait thieves no takers. Wandered over to the beach for about an hour yesterday and ended up with 2 small Walleye Perch on the Gulp camo.

    Try downsizing at that lagoon, lots of micro bass and sculpin in there. I’ve always had good luck with light line/trout rod and very small plastics like as small as you can cast. Very very slow retrieve working the bottom , moving a few feet down every few minutes, fan casting... not big fish, but very fun on your smallest gear and light line.

    I agree with A-Train . You really have to use small bait and go super slow. Also seems like the fish hold in pretty small pockets and you just need to put in the time to find pockets that don't have 6 guys standing in front of them.

    Good for you for getting out. That lagoon denied me for a long time before giving up a fish. Was beginning to think I wasn't meant to be fishing there. Agree with the above to downsize and look for the pockets of fish (BTW sometimes they can be out in the middle, in channels/holes).

    Went back out this morning with my 8 year old Daughter under the train tracks and had a blast for a few hours. Caught a total of 4 kept the two Rock Wrasse in the pics.

    Awesome!
    Please, keep all the rock wrasse you want! LOL! Actually, they aren't bad eating. Just a little boney. Glad you had some action.
