    Nice almost-legal flattie on plastics at ultra minus tide for a couple hours ending early this afternoon.
    Also did long the distance release trick (farming, I think it's called) on two bass (drag too loose or lead-head hook too small for thickness of plastic???).
    Saw a sunken sailboat that supposedly had a football sized hole in the hull. A guy on the beach said it might be the one that hit the jetty a few days ago. Fun day on the yak. Outgoing tide and wind made it more of a challenge.
    Scubbed up with De-Fishing Soap so wife will let me sleep indoors.

    Nicely done Jack. Way to get out on the water. Looked like a nice flattie. We should hit it up some time.

    What kind of plastic did you use?

    It looked a lot like this: I think it's an Artificiable, but it might be another brand. Angler's Choice on Rosecrans has a pretty good selection, as does Squidco.

    Spyder: sent you a PM

    NICE FLATTIE! Yeah...Sailboats don't do reefs and rocks very well...I had a
    sailboat customer sail his Coronado 35 onto the Submerged Reed just inside
    Pt.Loma..but got it off luckily. That reef, built to thwart submarines in WWII
    has "grabbed" many a boat at low tide..WATCH OUT..wherever you go!
    The reef off Laguna Beach, and the one off San Clemente are dangerous TOO~~!

    Tunahead is right. I understand the Zuniga jetty, the partially submerged one at the entrance to SD bay, has gradually sunk over the decades. It's ridiculous that it isn't marked better. I almost ran my dad's Slickcraft through it when I was a kid. That would have been the end of me for sure!

    what kind of stank are you using on your plastics that you need to "soap up" after one "up close" halibut release ?!?!?

    Half dozen sardines bummed from two guys in a Seaforth rental boat. Flylined them in the weeds near the Lifeguard HQ, the bait barge channel, and the main channel for for nada.
