Fishing Continues to Please

A full Moon, astronomically large tides and the Transit of Venus could not stop me from exploring my new home waters and even though the surf and wind were high, I was able to nab a few more croakers both today and yesterday.

I had to up my weight a bit to fight both the wind and high seas, but overall I've been enjoying this light tackle fishery which is quite under utilized as most folks around here fish from piers.

I'm hoping to explore using my 9 wt. Fly Rod on a few calmer days to see if I can get some of these little guys to take the fly. I'm also hoping some mackerel, bass, corbina and halibut soon end up on the end of my line.

Lastly, I'm looking forward to heading out at night soon in search of some Leopard Sharks on live bait! I'm not sure I'll be using This Meothod just yet, but have my own strategy in mind. Will report back. :)
