    Well, last trip to Otay the boy got the big'un, so this time I guess it was my turn. Still not the real big'un we have both been looking for but I'm not complaining. The boy still got the first fish nailing a frog fish while I parked the truck! (Isn't there some rule against that?)

    We we're running a little late, about 7am but still found some fish blowing up on bait, and worked over them well with the fluke. They all seemed about the same size.

    Decided to throw the chatterbait out a little deeper and was blessed with the biggest fish of the day ... a nice 6lber.

    We continued to follow the bait and even the A-rig was getting some love.

    Well, the bait dispersed so we went on the hunt catching a few fish here and there on the fluke, dropshot, senko, and frog.

    With the low water there is plenty of surface vegetation for the frog...and they were eating it.

    This guy got the vampire treatment.

    Kind of bored with fishing the same banks each trip, we decided to hit almost all new spots this trip and it paid off with another nice fish on the dropper... 5lbs.

    And another nice chatterbait fish to end out the day... 3+ lbs.

    Overall a great day on the water. Otay sure has been fun this year and thanks to my boy, has got me throwing a variety of baits with confidence. Tightlines!

    I don't throw a frog very often but I have to admit that first blow up on the frog had me squealing like a little kid. Such an exciting way to catch em.
