That Very Long Pier Somewhere Out There Anywhere I Don't Care - Lucky

I was running late and got to the pier around midnight.  I knew my window of opportunity was closing.  My peak time for landing a fish is usually around the third hour before the top of the tide.  I set up at the spot where I had lost a bass last week.  There was a 10 mph wind coming from the SW.  The wind has been pretty tame at night for the past couple of weeks.  With the wind and the resulting white caps, the "slaps" on top of the water were less noticeable, but they were still there, although, they seem to be thinning out.  I caught a couple of quality-sized anchovies and loaded up my lucky rod.  By lucky I mean that all of my previous reports of fish being caught were caught on this rod.  About 10 minutes in, before I even had the chance to set up my second rod, my lucky rod peels out.  After a short fight, this came up.


The fish was half an inch short.  Lucky fish on a lucky rod...

Within the next three hours, I moved around a bit and caught a small smooth-hound.

Before leaving the pier, I took a picture.


Not a soul in sight.  The only person with soul was me.  I've got my groove on!
