Aside from all the great reports lately, I have had some trouble finding the fish for the last few weeks. Here is last weeks result, on the troll no less :shake:





Today was a new story :D A few drifts past Emmy and my first legal "but" is in the boat





We both got a few solid hits on the subsequent drifts but only boated a single sandy in an hour so we headed for the "armada at the flats".
All the local sporties were there, sitting in 120 ft of water off the HB pier. I dropped the hook and sent my plastic down for instant hookup :D
Annette broke her fish off early and I landed a 2+ pounder (sandy).
I had a blue megabait on my jig stick and fired off a few casts before feeling that solid cuda thump :)





I'm stoked at this point, halibut in the livewell and a nice bass and cuda released :D
I make a few more casts and let one sink out a bit more. The iron gets wacked again !! This is not a cuda, but a solid fish for sure. I get color and I cant believe my luck :D





Poor Annette is not feeling the love and a bad knot on a solid fish really didn't help :(
The wind had laid down and other than some swell, the conditions were awesome.


Two more nice cudas for me and we called it a day. This is the better of the last two.




Fish count:
1 halibut
3 sand bass
3 barracuda
We just finished our halibut BBQ....mmmm.
