It was just beautiful! I had my fluking rod and another to throw skinny metal and switched back and forth as we walked. It didn't matter. There weren't any fish where we were, though I did talk to folks who caught a few snappers. Chunkers reported skate and one monster ray.
It was the holiday eve and there were a lot of folks setting up to spend the evening on the beach. Several of the people who got there earlier in the afternoon were about to be surprised by how far up the tide was going to come and I saw one bonfire get flooded.
My girl jumped in the water and swam for a bit every few hundred yards - the water was perfect for her.
Earlier in the afternoon I was out front practicing with my 9w and casting off the sand bars. I felt like I was doing it alright and that a fish might have found my Clouser interesting if any had been around. I'm not up to casting 100 feet yet, but can comfortably throw it 50', maybe, if the wind's right.

Great Job all around!!

Moco Outfront 5p-9p. Incoming tide with a SE wind and clear water with 3 foot visibility. There was small rain fish in the wash, but not in large number. There was no action until 8p, when a school of sand eels came in with the high tide. Something was chasing the SE, but I could not hook up with the hammered spoon and teaser, so I switched to a small deadly dick with a single buck tail that matched the SE profile better. While bouncing the deadly D on the bottom, I caught four flat ones, two shorts on the chartreuse teaser and two on the DD, which were 19 and 18. The 18 is still swimming.

I thought flounder didn't hit when it's dark :D

Yesterday I switched a scenery...went to LI Sound to try my luck there on the kayak...solo trip...water temp was cold ...around 67F to be compared to RB where it went over 81F..slow bite (maybe because of temps?)...managed 13 short fluke, one schoolie bass and 2 porgies with bunch of sea robins...overcast not too hot...anyway , it was nice to be outside

Nice!


We were out Tuesday in the back down here, and ran into a billion little sea bass, and a steady pick of shorts, from 10" to 17". I had high hook at over 10 (honestly just lost track, with all the little sea bass, fish that came unbuttoned on the way up or at the surface, those I actually boated, etc)


I had ONE good fish, definitely a keeper and perhaps a good one. My line broke because I forgot to loosen my drag after pulling it free from a previous snag (which also apparently weakened my leader at the swivel). I had the reel locked down and this fish took me. The kind of fish which first feels like a snag, then you get it off the bottom and get the head shake, then it goes back down and the rod does that nice upside down U.


Yeah that kind.

Rob, maybe it was just a Sea Robin?

Two weeks ago, I made an extra long cast, with a ten foot salmon rod and 5000 series Ambassadeur with 12 lb test, and a hi lo rig, reaching the back of an outer sand bar. I had tied a beautiful Flash Blend rain fish teaser for the hi position the night before and was confident it looked like a real rain fish. I was a few hundred yards away from a popular swimming beach in Moco. I hooked up with the mother of all flat ones, or so I thought as it shook its head and did the slow freight train run removing line from the reel. It suddenly made an abrupt left turn to run with the incoming tide toward the bathing beach. I gained a little line but it kept getting closer to the beach and my line was parallel to the shore line with 75 yards off the reel.
Ten minutes later and on its second run I made the classic mistake of trying to turn a fish as it was running and the line parted at the swivel and improved clinch knot. ( I"m going back to palomar's)

That parallel side run is classic cow nosed ray, but Ill always wonder since I didn't see it!
It wouldn't have went well any way since there would have been all sorts of panic and whistle blowing by the lifeguards if I entered the swimming area fighting the fish. Putting undue pressure on the fish was my way of opting out of being an internet sensation with all the smart phones on the beach! :doh2:

YD, yeah, that hurts not seeing it. I've had a couple in the surf that way, and you always wonder. It may have been, maybe likely, a ray, but my brother in laws best flounder, 9 lber, ran just like you described after the head shake, so the big ones can really take you. Once your line is parallel to the shore, you are generally in trouble, unless things go perfect.
