So, No Lie at all! 75 fish in one day... Started out the day on the bulkhead during high tide, First cast of the day was 3 fish attacking the same popper!!! Finally pulled out the 5 weight with an intermediate tip and a little pink "money fly" and my dad and I got up to speed fast! 17 fish in about an hour and a half. Then, IT DIED!!! we went about 2 hours without so much as seeing a fish or getting a hit. We decided to walk down the beach to another spot we had never fished before, First cast in the new spot and fish on! A eauphasid pattern was doing the trick for a while until it turned off again. at this point we were at 57 in 3 hours! we kept catching the fish until we decided to head up and head out. 75 fish later we were done!!! The worst part of the whole thing was our encounter with the sea lion! He came up and made a gawd awful noise and sent me back tracking! He scared off all the fish but we had a great time watching them all come back and hit anything we through at them! All in all the most fun day of fishing the salt I have EVER had!!! :thumb::thumb::thumb:

Holy crap. Great day indeed. With that large sampling how big are they and are they getting good and fat on abundant local food?

Hrm... I was expecting my cell to ring last night to let me know if grandma had an extra parking spot for me there. Not that I ever would have asked, but merely responding to your offer. Glad you did well.

If you were fishing the spot we were talking about, I drove by you. I was in the red boat. I did pretty good once I found some pods. Had 3 doubles. I love that!
You got a lot more than me today. Good work!
I'm going out tomorrow in the boat again.

Hey! We watched you fly by and we waved a few times, The bridge man, the bridge! the eddie in there was on FIRE!!! The point you fished right before you left was money until the fish turned off... :thumb:

I went out and got about 20 fish in about an hour and a half. Most were taking tiny very sparse Euphausid. Got a few boils on a gurgler.
