    Couldn’t find the macks at Crystal pier so we picked up frozen sardines and decided to try something new. My brother and I went De Anza Cove to try and catch rays and sharks. Hooked up on a big ray with my bass pro spinning reel 12 # line, took me for a massive run right off the bat but I was able to land it after a solid 20 minute fight. Didn’t wanna mess with that thing so I didn’t take any good pics with it but it was probably at least 12-15 pounds. Can’t wait to try again and definitely will use a leader anything bigger would break me off.

    Yeah, stout gear is the order of the day when targeting Bats!

    Flip it over and step on the tail and you’ll be fine. DAC is filled with sting rays right now. Not many sharks unfortunately. Different time of year...

    Thanks for the tip! Bat ray is my next target for the species list since sharks aren’t around yet I guess.

    Thanks! I recently upgraded my rod to a 7 foot 3 baitcasting rod which saved me for sure. My old rod would have snapped lol.

    Cooler months in the back bay for bat rays and sharks. Nothing else to say...

    What time of year do the sharks enter the cove? Been trying to catch one for a couple years now but no luck.

    Yep! Coach is right. Thanksgiving time frame you’ll start to see more bat rays and sharks. Leopard sharks seem a bit isolated unfortunately, but there are a few around during that time. DM me if you want more info.

    If you want a bat ray shoot me a PM or Tmaio or the Coach. Tmaio and I are just S&R junkies lol. Bat Ray's are my specialty, Coach is the authority on all things fishing.
