    hey friends!

    finally back to fishing. missed everyone in this community. missed fishing as well.

    got the chance after a few months to wet the lines. went to torrey with a bunch of freshly caught ghost shrimp from mission bay.

    so much grass. pretty much unfishable. was able to land 2 pretty hefty batrays (CPR). those things are crazy strong. especially on a very small reel. battling waves, grass, and that massive suction cup lol.

    gear used: 35 lb braid. penn pursuit 2500. 15 lb mono leader.

    lots of sand crabs tho. so a good sign heading into summer and warm weather. saw a few grunions on shore. and a lot of fishermen targeting halibuts with LCs. 65 degree water. getting warmer

    see yall soon. ill be out there a lot more and will be typing up more reports.

    also here's the youtube video from yesterday :)

    DUDE! A bat will give you a fit on that size gear! Good on you for getting them in. Also good to see you back in action in the surf. Always enjoy your reports.

    Tight lines.

    Thanks for the report.
    Those clumps....
    Yup- noticed the bigger sized models of the sand crabs. Hmmm wonder if they are at the launch? - could be something to use when heading out on the kayak (whenever I get around to doing that again).

    Thanks for the report. I was hoping to hit up TP this weekend, but your salad comment now has me rethinking it. Was it equally grassy on both sides of the inlet?
