    Thought I'd skip the crowds and hit Izors on Tuesday 6/1. First line in the water at about 6:30, 62.3 degree water, water clarity decent at about 15 ft, very light breeze with a matching current. Thick marine layer bordered on fog for much of the morning, about 3 miles visibility. Current eventually picked up, as did the wind.
    Seemed to miss the good luck charm dogs today. They had baths yesterday and didn't make the trip. As usual, no current - no fish. Had to work hard for 14 bass and two sculpin. Two sporties visited along with 4-5 private boaters, they all bugged out pretty quick as the bite was agonizingly slow. Very soft bites today on the plastics, missed quite a few. Calicos liked the red, sand bass more green conscious, although all colors caught fish. About 50/50 with sandies and Calicos. Sandies to 20 inches, most were keepers, all but one Calico was short. All released. One sculpin was pretty stout. Caught about 4 of these strange translucent "worm" looking things. What are they? They must have been thick for me to randomly get four stuck on a plastic. Broke a rod today and lost several rigs to the Izors debris, slack current kills me.
    Anyway, as tough as fishing was, good to be out on the water and catch something!
    Tight lines!

    I believe that the "red translucent worm thing" is a pyrosome. Nice job making a slow day turn into a fun day on the water! Better luck when the dogs are with you next time!! Thanks for the report.

    Wow. That's what those things are. They have no guts, no movement, and look like a hollow spiky tube. I pulled up several when fishing out of DP headlands. Thanks for the education.
