Bait Fishing OB pier
« on: January 11, 2018, 11:38:47 AM »
Finally healed up from a bad cold. Needed to wet a line to feel right and I was low on bait. Headed to OB pier hoping the macks were still around. Caught a bunch of the mini stuff with a couple large ones, a stray bonito off of a mega bait, and big 'ol octopus that I released.







Macks were hungry at the near bottom of the tide only. Once the tide swung, the were gone. Strange. Surprisingly, there's still lots of life and bait in spite of the cold water. Got bait, just need some grinners.

Can't believe you let the octopus go.

Wanted to eat it, but was too lazy to do the work. Would hate to see it go to waste.
