Taped up my finger after cutting it good on the 4th and put in three dives last week...two limits and one skunk. LOL

1st dive was great conditions and I got three fish pretty quick (24, 25, 29 inches).

2nd dive I took my kayak out to explore, but the south swell had moved in and combined with a real low tide it was colder and murkier and had to work harder to find fish...found a 24 and 25 incher and stowed them on the kayak and jumped back in to look for the third...

Little bit later found a nice 29.75 incher and after I shot it realized it had a jig and swimbait stuck in its mouth.  :smt005

Love kayak diving and being able to keep fish inside kayak instead of having to swim around with them hanging off belt...

Jig eye had no line on it, so looks like knot came undone...doh!

Third dive was crap conditions and quite a bit colder and only spooked one fish right at end of dive and went home with an empty cooler.

Hopefully swell drops and water warms back up again soon...

Jim

Best I could manage was a 32" Badger on a white buck tail with white worm curly tail

Looks like you are putting those bucktails I got you to good use. Way to go. Looks like the 3/4 oz was the ticket.

Hey Ghostfish.... nice job on that Gorilla Halibut....it looks really "thick"!!!!!!!   And Big Jim Spearo...... great results on your halibut outings.... hopefully diving conditions will settle down & you can stick that 40 pound flatty.

No. Of course it was my own fault for not changing out the factory hooks!

 

.....And it was a nice fish too.

Ended a recent skunk streak with this chunky grumpy 28.25 incher taken late at night diving solo in dark murky shark infested waters...

#27 for the year for me so far...

Still looking for one over 34 inches for a capper to the summer sand season...preferably one over 40 but would settle for one over 34 since haven't got one bigger than that since 2015....

 

I know she's out there waiting for me....

Sincerely,

Jim
