    Went out to southbay on the yaks with FlyFavorite, flyfishinsteve64, and a couple of other friends. My first time hitting the salt in 3 months. The J-street gate was open when we got there at 6:20, and it was looking like it would be a good day with high tide at 9:11. Chatted with Tomaso and Larry as they were lauching their boat.

    It was a bit slower than usual, only picked off a few spotties, but I got my first bonefish. Man, what a fight. As soon as he started to pull line out of my hand, I knew it was something other than a spottie. I totally undestand the hype now, and can't wait to try for bigger specimens sometime in my life. He took a white clouser with some pearl and red krystal flash.

    The bite died down as expected at high tide, and then the wind picked up, so we decided to call it a day around 11. Whitecaps started to form, but our friend Mike stayed out there, braving the wind, and got over a dozen corvina to hand.

    I couldn't let the day's momentum fade, so on the way home I stopped off at the river to look for some carp. I found a nice school with some solid specimens, and was able to get one to take a white globug.

    I think a couple of them might actually have been true!
