    I have kid events everyday for a week starting tomorrow so I took the day off to get some tug in.

    I had three lines spread out at DAC. One would get hit almost immediately after hitting bottom, another every once in a while, the last never. I moved the other two lines closer to the hot line to bracket the bite, and it worked. Fish on over and over again. Twice all three lines were bent over tight. I had to wrestle the fish close to shore, lock the drag, and then run to another rod and do the same.

    I think the tally was about 18 batties today, most in 10-lb range, 3 in the 30-40 range. I lost two due to hook slip and another due to mooring tangle.

    Beats the crap out of work!

    At first whole squid but I quickly started to run low. So then I switched to squid pieces. Devoured. Biggest was caught on a twice mangled piece of squid.

    Found some time after my son’s baseball game today (5-4 loss against Cathedral) so I charged back to DAC for a couple hours. Scored 11 batties, one small the rest over 20 but under 40. Nice! Also, it’s spring break for some college as it was Hottieville (god damned I miss college) down there. So love SD!!!
