Been on a 5 dive multi-county skunk streak since August 2nd, but managed to finally bring home a fish yesterday after work.

 

Not a big one, and crappy shot placement but still stoked to bring home something besides empty beer cans in the cooler.

Some of the red tide/stained water was still around but waaay better than it was a bit ago.

 

Water was super warm with an average of 64 and max of 66.

 

Saw three other butts that spooked before I could get a shaft in them, a bunch of big bat rays, a big school of good sized barred surf perch, and 4 trigger fish I let live for future ceviche needs. ; p

 

Met up with my girls afterwards for a family PhoFest at the NoodleBar.

Played hooky from work and did the salmon closer for our zone yesterday.. decided to go Hali fishing in the morning then run out for salmon.. Hali bite was a little slow at first and it was hard to find any squid to jig after the city of lights wrapped them all the night before.. mannaged to jig up about 30 good sized diddles.. which is what the fish wanted,, live...  Anyway got some halis then ran 10 miles to the salmon grounds I have been slaying all season.. slayed our limit in about a hr and a half...

Didn't really fish much the last few days.. . did go o dark thirty Saturday morning. Hiked and plugged about 4 miles of my  sand on guessing the bottom of a minus tide by the looks of it.. so sucked out.. Had one fish show and stick for about 10 seconds then it fell off.. had more interest by birds when the light came up and  dogs with worthless owners letting them get in the way. One was about 20 yards out swimming towards my pencil stick  before I had to ask it's side tract owner to put it in check so I could reel up my plug any farther..

A lot of the local #831 inshore water has been messed up with a really bad RedTide so I had to hunt outside of my comfort zone in deeper water in new (to me) areas south of Monterey on the way down to Bakersfield for a family weekend.

Exploration paid off and I ended up with 3 fish for 2 dives in 2 different spots.

Nothing huge (26.5, 23.5, 27.5) but plenty of meat for my father in law's Birthday party.

it's sad, but we just don't get the length and girth in our bass out West that they do back East.
