Inshore 5-24 Long Beach. 5 Dicks in a Parker threw everything at fish that weren’t hungry.

So I called Rich to see what’s up for fishing today (my sled or his), and since his friend Richard (another 2 dicks) was coming, we took Taxfree as it fishes 3 more comfortably than mine. Since this trip was on the heels of a wind event (plus a full moon), we had low expectations fish count wise. Turned out we were right.

We launched a little before 5 and hit the usual spots for terrible fishing in great weather. Temps were 61-62 degrees with good vis, so the water didn’t roll badly. We had fish on the meter. They were just not hungry. The breeze was out of the west, then died, then came back and chased us off by 11:00. It didn’t take much convincing to throw in the towel as fishing sucked big, sweaty, duck butter covered donkey balls. Had the fish been biting, we would have stayed. It wasn’t blowing that bad.

Totals: Maybe 20 fish 50/50 rockfish/bass caught on everything from Kman Specials, BH Calico Hunters, JP jigs and lime green swimbaits. We saw some birds late and some bait, but it seemed pretty lifeless. We did have a big mola circle the boat a couple times.

We didn’t sink the boat, get arrested or towed. It was a great half day on the water. Thanks for the invite Rich. I still need to take my sled out and give that SS175HW ducer a workout.

Anyways, we’ll get them next time.

Oh: Davies ramp is closed for repaving this week. I think it opens Saturday.

    Hey, at least you're not bitter!

    Besides, the fish deserve a day off after the way you guys have been hammering them lately!
    :D

    Awesome report. Thanks for heads up about the launch ramp. Beautiful rockfish with no barotrauma. Now that I think about it, I think that is the first rockfish I have seen without buggy eyes. That's cool.
