Title: I should move to SD 11/12 VC
Post by: SevengillTheVC on November 13, 2020, 04:33:13 PM
Hit up the usual spot, free of weeds, small surf, and a major cliff of sand created by the storm that we had. Got out a little later than usual so we had minimal action on the critters, but bait thieves were out in force. Finally around 8PM I see two significant bounces in my rod and  then slack. Reeled up quick and sent the hook home! Fish on! Very slow but strong runs, and twisting and shakes, this for sure is the right kind! Get it to the skinny, well damn, 70 pound class bat ray that I managed to hook right in the center of it's belly, explaining why he didn't fight like a bat ray. I was happy to get the only fish of the night but man, it's been over two years since I've gotten a real grinner. Welp, there's always next time!

Well, better than nothing I guess.

It's good to see your name on a report my man, we're thinking about giving it a go Sunday evening   ;)

VC has always been a hot bed for 7-gills, but a belly hooked bat is better than my 5 trip fishless streak (until recently).

Actually just thinking about a belly hooked 70# bat ray is hurting my back.  hahaha

SD is a great place to move. There a new barrel bar with a fish cleaning station opening up I hear.

I heard the owner of said establishments has very poachable spots as well  ;)

My last grinners were about this time last year, so I feel some mojo in the air now with the season change. Keep at it!

They just built a covered porch for outdoor seating too! Perfect for this new normal we're having!

That's a lot of bait!  ;D

Once I started using ray for bait, I stopped catching them.  I guess they're not cannibals.
Did catch more of the right kind though.
