Double Trouble 2/10/18
« on: February 11, 2018, 11:34:59 AM »
Well after a heartbreaker last surf sesh with Mike (pinoyfisher) I had to get back out. finally had time yesterday, mike was on daddy daycare duty, sent out a few more texts and got no response from a few guys. Hit my cousin up and he was free and down to roll so we set out and were on the sand by 630. Sent out the 1st baits and almost instantly got critter bit, this went in for a good 45mins b4 I switched out one bait and rcasted a head a few times. 3rd cast with a chewed up mack head, 5mins in my line goes slack after a small bump, grab it wind, wind, wind, wind, wtf? Oh sh!t there she is!  Finally catch up to her and she's on, super pissed and drag rippin! Herky jerky head shakes, then slack! Holy sh!t not again, wind, wind, wind, wind, tight! Oh sh!t thank Poseidon shes still there, blitz' me again and rips more drag off the baitrunner b4 she goes airborne in clear view! Oh sh!t cuz is that it? Yeah thatís her brah! Get ready! Wtf do I do? Heís never seen anything like this before! I wear her down some more, but every time she gets close she rips line back out thru the wash. Finally get her belly to hit hard pack and my cuz gets a tail grab but sheís not havin it, he drops her, she rolls free a few times b4 I hand off the rod and get her outta the agua for the pics!



Lil washed out waiting for some more pics from my cuz. But I was stoked to say the least! Got her back in the water and took a few minutes to smoke the rest of my blunt I almost lost durring the fight lol sent up some smoke for the fish gods! Sent out another bait and let my adrenaline subside and sent out some messages to share the stoke!

Soaked a few tails that got chewed up sent out a chunk and got a decent hit on my 2nd rod, that seemed lobsterish but checked it anyway, it ended up being a legal calico!



As I took that pic the Rasta-rod gets slammed! I drop the bass in the cooler and grab it! Itís still playin with it when I get to it.. as I debate on swingin on it, it takes off and I lay into it! Oh sh!t cuz is it on? Yuuup! another shark? Yeah feels like a leopard! No screaming runs, jus herky jerky rolls and tail slap, it storms the beach after a few minutes and as I get closer I donít see saddles, I see a purplish spotted pretzel squirmin and thrashing in the white wash! Oh sh!t sevengill, here cuz I got this one lol wtf is that cuz? Here take the rod! I tail grab him and drag him ouy as he shows his flexibility and snaps back at me a few times before heís on the hard pack! My cousins freakin out! never seen anything like any of this before, shocked is a serious understatement! He canít believe the thing can bite itís own tail and almost gets me a few times durring the melee! But I unhook him and get the pics b4 we send him back home!





This dude was seriously pissed, would snap back and tail slap every few secs so good pics were hard to get but we got em and holy sh!t was I beyond stoked! Soaked a few more baits as the tide dropped, got one more possible grinner bite but that was all she wrote! Couldnít really ask for more, 2 grinners 2 species and a keeper Calico I gave to my cousin since heís never tasted the deliciousness of calico tacos! And he did a pretty good job sand handin on his 1st shot! You can bet Iíll be back out tonight!
