    HUGE 23" CORBINA!!!!! lots of little corbinas and a good amount of yellowfin croaker. Great night!!

    Will be fishing a lot more frequently to close out the summer before school starts again

    Tight lines everyone

    Also tried out a new spot near OB pier. Used mussels for the first time today also. A little messier than sand crabs. Probably not worth the mess either. Sand crabs = mussels in terms of fish bite frequency. Would definitely recommend fresh clams though. Those get bit so frequently.

    Very nice corbina... Congratulations!

    Even better is it looks like you took a quick photo and released it. Nicely done!

    Nice chunky one there. Which of the 3 baits you mentioned did it hit? Just curious. I've tried a few littleneck clams lately but just do not seem to stay on the hook unless switch to a small treble which I don't like to do. Mussels seem to hold the hook better with the tough rind to anchor the bait.

    Nice work. Looks like you caught it at dark, which means the fish see very well at night. Unless the clams are leaking flavor in the water.

    Nice fish!! Really hoping to catch a corbina this year. Heard they are really good eating.
