    Went with my cousin and little bro to the power plant lagoon for halibut (6am- 8:30am). The tide was lower than I'd ever seen, so we fished a few eddies and the edge of the channel under Carlsbad ave. I caught two halis, 18" (not pictured) and 19" on a 3 inch big hammer. Cousin got 1 micro sandy on the ds gulp sandworm, little bro got none in the lagoon but lost something sizable at Oside pier this afternoon. I also put some work in with the fly, to no avail. Tried sight casting to a couple big spotfins just along the riprap, but no dice. Very spooky, those guys are. Overcast sky and light wind didn't help me with seeing them either. Still, a good day in all. Did I mention the 18 incher came on the first cast?:cigar:

    I concur, a good day in my book. Keep those North County reports coming. I used to live in Oside so it piques my interest every time I see one!
