No, but having a gap between boats (casting distance) prevents this from happening. I highly doubt it was the captain of old glory that threw the iron. Boating is about safety. Drifting within casting distance of a boat with 30+ competitive anglers is not safe.
1/4 ounce bass jig with a swimbait flutters alot. Color of water, baitfish present, tidal conditions, water depth... fishing is fishing. Just because I am eating good one week off one presentation doesn't dictate what I do the next day, next spot, or next condition. I hope ot helps.
Went for a quick after work session. Tide was low incoming. A big shoal of giant spotfin croaker was feeding on? Maybe worms in the sand? I hooked up on a clear grub... good fight... thought it was a solid hali...giant butterfly ray... if I had blood worms...game on. No sandcrabs available.
Sorry. Quick after work session at the local jetty inlet. A guy was there all day for one bite. Was about to quite and go home. Last cast on a small white bass jig, swim bait trailer, 8 pound test. Boom... first legal of 2019. Dinner by 6:30pm. 25"
Just talked to the construction supervisor in charge of the project. He said they killed over 1,000 legal halibut ... some over 30 pounds. Not to mention all the other fish they killed. It doesn't make sense or seem right at all.
I swam across the entrance a few weeks to relax in the Jacuzzi at paradise point resort. Got bumped by the scaley crock or gator. If you ever watched a cartoon fast forward swimming jumping up on docks running and swimming to get back to the boat. That's the story.
Pen slammer 3 3500. 9' #4-#20 rod. 20# spectra to#15 p line mono. 3/4 oz Carolina rig #40 pound flouro 3' leader. 4/0 owner hook.
Catch bait... #20 flouro. Size #4 hook. Sandcrabs for bait. Snap barrel leader allows you change leaders quickly while the bait is alive. Have faith big fish eat...
One straighten hook. I brought a handful of grunion down. 1/2 ounce swim baits tipped with grunion. Also got a 22" halibut, after first big hook up, no more grunion. Every cast was bot with fresh halibut tipped swim baits.
Cardiff in front of restaurants. 350 yds 20# Spectra, 200 ft 20# mono, 1 oz dropper loop to small piece of squid, short cast, instant bite, straight out to sea, never slowed down, or changed direction.
Not quite a fishing report, but I have been seeing spots of fish under the birds from Cardiff to Carlsbad all week from the beach. Before the MLPA I would be charging them in the kayak for a quick hookup. Low tide looks like the time. They might be outside the MLPA line?
Success has three freezers on board. Fish are vacuum sealed and everyone gets to take home at least a 50# box of squid eating perfect a grade ahi. Fish get chilled to 33 degrees immediately in 3 ton fish hold
