    4/15/19, 8:30-11:45pm, tide going out
    Mission Bay
    T-rig with Baker bait

    Sometimes I ask myself: Is it worth it to post every single catch? Because sometimes I'm hesitant, "do people really care that I catch a dink of a sandbass or a 13" spottie?"

    But I will. Hopefully to motivate others that even on a slow night... you could still manage a dink and a 13" spottie.

    BTW... another spur of the moment sesh with theBarrelMan™️ ....

    Also... it may look like my finger is inside his gill, but it's not.

    Of course it is! Haven't hit the water in about 2 1/2 weeks (streak ends tonight, thankfully). Its always nice to see the trend of how the fish are biting and the such. Keeps me excited for when I can actually wet a line myself.

    I feel the same way sometimes, do people really care that I caught xyz fish with xyz bait. But honestly, these little details help others catch fish so yeah it does help/matter. Thanks for posting.

    If they didn't bite for me and you have bad numbers too it helps my fragile ego, however when I pulled 2 and you post how you pulled 15 in an hour in the same general spot it helps me realize I should have mixed up what I was throwing instead of being lazy with the same old green or ghost shrimp plastic that usually works. I appreciate your reports, thanks for taking the time to write em.

    Its not worth it, BUT anyone who don't like it , don't have to click on it.

    I used to post a lot of reports and some people would chime in complaining that they were tired of reading my reports?

    world class stupidity

    Fishtricks if it wasn't for your reports I would have never learned longlining spinnerbaits and other baits.i am a good fisherman you made me a better one . one of your posts led me to meet Ed Ries and my obsession with SD Bay.you are one of SD Fishes old school guys. I have always appreciated your reports.

    Keep posting please! Every post for a catch is a "mental fishing" for those of us taking a breath at work, let us keep "fishing" with you:)

    Post em all, but this is a forum where we look for info, so tell us all. What happened that was significant? What did you throw, did you lose out and get pissed or go back and do well with a different lure? That's what i want to know.

    Thanks for asking ;)

    Keep posting. Keep the forum alive. I’ll live vicariously since I haven’t hit a spottie in months.
