Fish report - 9/17, 9/18
« on: September 18, 2016, 02:13:30 PM »
Fished both Sat and Sunday am.
Saturday 9-17
Arrived at the AO pre grey light to great conditions except for some grass that cleared as the tide came in.

Had a slow steady pick of Halibut and Calico's for the first hour, when I got a massive hit on the swimmie. I set the hook, only to feel the bait pop out its mouth, kept reeling...when 3 cranks later, BAM, another huge hit. This time the hook went home and the fight was on. At first just heavy weight and massive headshakes, then zzzzzz, zzzzzz, zzzzzz. As the fish started taking drag, I knew this was a good one. Five minutes later, I get my prize to the sand and got to measure my new PB WSB at 24", Quick pick and gently released back to Poseidon.
Picked up a few more bass and hali's to end the day.

Fished 6-9:30 for a total of:
1 WSB 24"
6 Calico up to 12"
5 halibut up to 17"
2 Mac



Sunday 9-18
Fished again from 6-9:30.

Today I got into a cool Mac blitz for about 15-20 minutes where the macs were pushing bait right onto the sand in front of me. I ended up chasing the action up and down a 100yd section of sand as they herded the bait ball. It was pretty cool catching the mac almost on the sand. I was only pitching the KM 10-15 to get into the action. I should have had a lot more but ended up catching about a dozen mac. They were having a hard time connecting with the KM in surge and were only getting 1 shot at before it hit the sand. I actually had 2-3 get washed onto the sand chasing my bait and had 2 hit me in the legs when the surge carried the activity directly where i was standing.

Right after the macs split, I picked up a few calico's and 2 YFC that were mopping up what was left.

Sundays total:
12+ mac
13 Calico to 15"
2 YFC

Nice Ron 8)

I threw the LC in the early morning hours next to a thick reef in OC on sat.

Wsb and butts were on the mind, ended up with a -1 since I only snagged a baby round ray.

Keep posting those light rod reports, you might convince me to take a break from the heavy gear for a bit  ;)

There's a couple places I've been eying. Hoping I can give it a go this week.

That's a hell of a day and a hell of a surf sea bass!  Nice way to change things up!
You can't catch them from your computer chair.
