    Short, slow session with the homie. A few keepers, not much bycatch
    Long
    Painfully slow run with Roncador and the kiddo .. started off promising enough, with a few nice catfish landed and a few more lost to breakoffs in a light rain.. figured we could consider the coolers jugged... WRONG... Rain went away and so did the bite. Excessive mud, inaccessibility problems, and strong moonlight (apparently ?) shut the bite off like a light switch. Other than a few carp (one little one kept for bait), not much doing. Found a spot with all the carp you could ask for, not what we wanted. Kept on, and there didn't seem much point other than a juvenile flathead for our efforts, or more carp if we wanted them. stuck to bigger hooks and baits, mostly fresh cut carp on number four hooks. Kept the hookup ratios down, but damn, it was slow. Good quality, damn few fish though.. we could have moved more, been more stealthy, used smaller hooks with shrimp if we wanted more, smaller fish. We didn't.. kept working on it, with nothing on the 7th but a few pest LMB including one better than 12 inches gill hooked. Tossed him back to die, thanks DFG for not letting us harvest the gut hooked vermin less than 13 inches.. anyway.. another day in paradise.. thanks, Roncador for hanging out with me and the kids, for a slow session with a great start.. ah, yes..

    How is the fishing out there in the winter, generally speaking? I still want to make a run in the near future..just hasn't been in the cards yet

    Typically slow.. fall and spring seem like the easiest fishing, by far.. winter can have some good ones though, for the folks who do make it out there

    Weather is all different now.. lows in the 30s highs upper 60s... Fishing is probably super slow unless you want carp, and no guarantees there

    Good point on the weather. I'll pass for now, stay in the surf/jetties...really want some cats, haven't tried carp...maybe when it warms a bit.
