    Boat:
    Nice tube and yak
    - 16.5”
    - J Street Chula Vista, by docked boats
    - 8:15 p.m. or so
    - caught only one needlefish in a couple hours before sunset, switched to jerkbait, caught it on first or second cast


    Here’s my technique:

    1. Birdnest reel real bad
    2. Curse bad luck
    3. Realize a fish is on
    4. Sense fish is barely hooked
    5. Reel frantically
    6. Lift fish into kayak
    7. Watch hook fall out of fish’s mouth
    8. Take credit for great skill

    A couple weeks ago I was screwing around with a BPS jerkbait, wondering if it would work in MB. I tied it on a spinning rod and went over to a local launch ramp(the shoreline was muddy) and threw it out there. Right then my phone rang(a friend) so i flipped the bail over but didn't get the line tight....the lure was just sitting in the water on a slack line. While talking on the phone my rod tip started jumping so I hung up to see wtf was going on. I grind in a 20" vina....go figure:emoji_thinking:

    Yeah the one I got with the "dead-stick" method had the trebles in his gills......he ended up in a skillet. Will have to give the "backlash" method a try haha

    Tried the BNT on YT last night, but the tangle was permanent. Stowed that mess, tried for rockfish on Jigmaster right as a school of something passed. It seems no mistake is foolproof.
