Normally we don’t go on opening day due to the circus but We had such an itch to go why not. We left around 5pm inside the Long Beach area only to find every spot was claimed. Didn’t want a lobster war and the water was so flat calm we decided to head over to the Izor area were we marked some nice rocks over the summer. We were dropping our nets while the blood moon was rising. Not another boat in sight. What a beautiful night. Long story short we did only two set and got our limits. The down size, we did lose 3 net to the bottom. OUCH! But the quality jumbos made up for it. On a side note, one net had over 20 rock crabs which is a first for us.

Awesome haul. Great reef, anchor prison. There are some good dive vids showing the reef and all the pick up stix looking pile of cement light poles that is down there.

    I have thought of giving it a shot but the gear tax would be too high! All that structure is very tempting I'm sure the bugs are there and they are safe from me! Have at it boys. We are going to lose a lot more jigs after all your nets get stuck down there!

    Makes me feel better about losing one net to the west jetty in Newport. And that one may or may not have been due to my own idiocy. As my grandfather always said "If you're going to play with the big boys you're going to pay with the big boys!" Nice bugs though.
