Santa Monica Bay Turds that is.....,


Got a late start 'cause of having to rewire the bait pump at the guest dock but it was low tide anyway so no biggy.....

Chatted with Mike at the bait dock & got a 1/2 scoop of nice,healthy 'dines.
1st stop at a local reef showed some life & sure enough they were chewin'.....

Even pink....

A couple of calicos & sandies were caught when I got hammered on the drop by a fish I couldn't stop w/15# P-line on a 300te.
It took me to its lair & stayed there 'till I finally had to back the boat up to get some line back & get more vertical as the wind was carrying me away....
After about 10mins.of tug-a war I managed to get it to start up and thought for a minute it was a big 'Butt as it seemed to plane up & shake its head like one.Juan was ready with the gaff to see what had me struggling so long hopeing for another nice 'butt when we see a BIG Sand Bass come to color.
I told Juan to gaff it anyway as I figured the line was probably pretty tore up after the tussle on the bottom.

The bite turned off so we headed south to the Hermosa area where Juan got his big 'Butt 2wks. ago.There were a dozen boats drifting the area looking for leftover WSB or 'Butts I guess.All we were getting were sand dabs & after 6-8 passes in 90-50ft we & the others started back as the wind/waves were getting to the popcorn stage.

Made one last stop at a reef just past high tide on the way in and on the 1st drift I get hammered again but this time I got the upper hand early......,
but it was only 5 lbs ........
