    Beautiful morning for fishing. No wind, clear water, overcast.

    Tired of getting skunked, I followed some of the advice I’ve read here, and THANKS to all I finally got some keepers. Not trophy worthy but beats skunk!

    My usual rig for beach/rocks has always been a single dropper loop with a 3oz.weight. Today I tied up a Carolina rig for the first time, put a sand crab on the hook and BAM!!! Hit within a minute!
    I forgot how hard YFC can fight. The bean was fun, too. It’s going to be taco night tonight!

    Thanks again, everybody!

    Surf fishing is a lot about putting in the time. When the conditions line up it's game on.....but you won't know till you go.

    When I cut open the stomach of the bean, I was surprised to see it full of WORMS along with the expected sand crabs. I didn’t know they ate worms. Learn something new every day.

    Great report.. Interesting about the worms. I’m wondering what type of worms were in the stomach and where are the Corbina finding them, up shallow or in deeper water. Blood worms are imported from east coast and I don’t think we have them in local waters.

    I've seen tiny ones that look like blood worms in the sand here (mostly at Swami's); we also definitely have sand worms or some other form of polychaete

    Next time I’ll take a picture. They were long, fairly thin and segmented.

    Were the sand crabs at LJ shores? None at Torrey Pines.

    I wasn’t at the Shores. There were lots of sand crabs at WindanSea.
