    Hello all

    I am pleased to say, after all of your help and advice, that my skunk is off.

    Spent Friday morning trying to site-catch about 10 large Corbina swimming in a trough. No Luck. (very kelpy)

    Went back today (no kelp) with a lighter Carolina Rig (again , thanks for all the advice), and I managed one small YFC and a decent sized Corbina. Two new species for me!

    Wow, y'all were right! The Corbina put up a good fight. It took drag and made a good run. Very strong fish!

    All in all, 2 great days at Torrey Pines

    Those fish are all muscle. Think about the life they live in the surf zone. Constantly fighting current , swell and surges. They’re athletes. 14” and up is a fun fight. 20” and up and your lucky if you land it! Keep up the good work!
