    Sad report.

    Trying to get the kids on a good tug. We set up at Cardiff state beach around 6. The salad started showing up about an hour later and steadily worsened. Bad tide to begin with, but the swell was churning the kelp like a washing machine.
    Was wading out 100 yards through sting ray infested water to get to thigh deep water where I could cast past the breakers (not fun in the dark!). Couldn’t keep a line out more than a minute, even with 3oz spider sinker, before kelp wrapped it and had it on the shore.
    Frustration got the better of us and we packed it in by 9:30.

    Sorry no reports of whopper fish, but hey we all get our butts kicked sometimes! Thought I would share in case anybody felt like it was only them.
