READY. SET. GO!
.
Kicked off '18 with a short search for those pugnacious calicos and found a bunch, mostly littles. Finally found a good one that shredded the leader and hammered the ten weight but it eventually found the deck after one heck of a tussle. Conditions went away, so a little tour of the premises, and BINGO. Always welcome, capped things off with a bait-scattering school of bonito that loved a fast-stripped Clouser! πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸŒŠπŸŒ’πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

BRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Downright chilly
Moon was gone
Ocean was chill
Black until dawn

Bass barrie bone
Many but small
A mini grand slam
Havin' a ball

New line cast well
Cut though the breeze
Covered the depths
Greatest of ease

Running line slipped
Thru cold wet hands
Biggun' schooled me
Not what I planned

Super fun Monday
Sun's now out
Wind's backed off
Get up and shout

On a hunch, checked a section as the tide went flat and found a bunch of surface-feeding speedsters that looked a lot like bonito but smaller. Ha-ha! Landed double handfuls of those frenetic clouser eaters as they pushed bait on top and on the meter. For a bit it felt a little like summer. Hit another zone trying to round up a barracuda to complete the 3B's slam, but it wasn't to be. Still stoked, just another amazing Friday on Lake Pacific. Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸŸπŸŒŠπŸŒ’πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

Facing into a stunning sunset, we started our trip with a flurry of grabs then after a lull we'd hammer another group of willing biters. And so the night went, FUN! Then it happened. About mid-trip, the H2 got rocked hard, then I do everything I can to grip the cold wet slippery fly line under a seriously heavy load. Thump-thump-thump, the tug-of-war rages on steering it away from the jagged obstacle course, and finally it is within sight. Dave reaches way out and in one swoosh, he scoops it up. We both stare into the net in absolute awe. Perfect in every way, not a single mark on her, we snapped a couple, then quickly released her back into the ocean, under an overhead full moon. Decades old, much too precious to kill, she rocketed away healthy.πŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

DARK WET BITING
.
From the first chuck, it was fast and furious on straight calicos, most of the grabs on crashdown. BOING! SMASH! GRAB! Easy couple dozen later, still couldn't get past to the bigguns that live there so I left 'em biting. Went looking for a kicker but even more of that same nice grade in a blowing shower. Fine start to the weekπŸŽ£πŸ‘πŸŒŠπŸŒ§πŸ‘ŠπŸ’₯πŸ€—

Stop number two
biters last trip
Grab after grab 
most no strip

Rocky bottom marked 
gathered up good
Kelp tipping current 
way that it should

A few splashy boils
through silvery sheen
Followers too
orangey clean

BOMBS AWAY

A pre-air show big fly strafing of the "Wall" sounded like a splendid idea. Smooth running in the early darkness, a couple of bug hunters meant weaving easily through a few Cyalume-lit lobster trap floats but other than that it was our own private Idaho.....even for a Sunday. Peter went to work quickly on the bass, showing no signs of rust while the boat driver, well, struggled to find the right motion. Our spotted quarry eventually settled on something red and black angled almost vertically with a few relucatant ticks while others slamming grabs. Weird for sure. A few gently descending droplets of rain, double handfuls of calicos, a single micro sandie, and full limits of laughs, it was so great to be back on our home waters. Staring at Lake Pacific all week, I think it may be time to trek the Edgewater across to more fertile waters next week 😁.
