Darn, that is a buncha bad news. Another fish kill and Bill P strikin' out doesn't bode well for anyone's success. Amazing there actually was another tuna! I wonder what the heck is going on with that? How long do guess that specimen was, Allen?

 

...and thanks a whole bunch for that one closeup, btw eek.gif

.....i did go as far as put the dead croaker in my bucket in case i saw a ranger but as fate would have it ....not one in sight.

This am while throwing my usual bucktail (lost 2)in the oc inlet, saw several dead ones floating but no accumulation on the beach when i checked. While a biologist by education don't claim to know much about fish kills so my paranoria as to the cause is probably unfounded, yet the cold water upwelling theory don't sound all that good considering the wind patterns lately........one thing is a fact them seagulls on the beach were well satisfied and could hardly lift off as i approached...............looked like some of the big ones were unable to fly...what a feast!
