    the title says it all...finally scored...went out a couple more times in the last few days for the skunk but figured I wouldn’t report again until I had good news...felt like I was bringing everyone down..

    Hit mission beach round 7 right before sunset...same rig I’ve been throwing all week...felt the first tap and it was over...ended with 5 or 6..only fished hour and a half...these dudes are a lil harder to lip so only a couple pics...but glad I finally made it happen...thanks to all those in here that answered my questions you guys have heard a million times already...next thing I need to learn is a recipe...

    Nice going, way to hang in there. I've scored in that area in past years, may have to revisit.

    Are them Yellowfin Croakers or Corbina? One night I caught a bunch like that, with no yellow fins. And wasn't sure

    Been out like 2-3 times since...fish every time..even took my brother out spur of the moment on father’s day and he caught a couple...went yesterday round 2 found a decent spot and fished for an hour and a half while my daughter played...towards the end the lifeguard came up to me and told me he don’t care but for future reference I have to stay 120? Yards away from swimmers..he was cool...caught one right after that and it was time to leave anyway...but I learned something new..
