Went out yesterday 10/31 to hit some local spots. Buddy gets to my house at 5:30. Tells me he forgot the squid at home. Ugh. We weren't planning on getting bait at Nachos so this is all we were counting on. Drive to his house in LB and get the squid. Stop at 7-11 for ice. Damn! forgot my coffee. Stop at Mcds to get a coffee and a couple sandwiches. Ok lets do this. Get to Davies at 6:30. First we fished the 105 for a few bass. Not much happening there so we went to the 150. Found some marks on the bottom and drifted it about 6 times. Got a few rock fish, a nice goat, and a 19" Sandy. Release a couple nice sculpin and the Sandy. All caught on frozen squid on dropper loops. Overall it was a great day out there. Little to no wind and flat.

Nothing like being amped-up to fish, and then the unexpected detours kick-in. :2gunsfiring_v1:
Sounds like you made the most of it!

I went to Izors last week opened the cooler to get some squid and it was empty.
Left it the truck. All I could do was laugh. Was back in about an hour with the bait and ice. After 45 years of fishing I'm surprised it hasn't happened sooner.

Nice going,sounds like it would have been a good day for the swimmies with a strip of squid to entice.

After fishing loaded everything in the work van. A week later, I heard a noise from a playmate cooler falling from the top shelf, that was filled with squid. while driving the van.
One stoplight later, the smell was so overwhelming I had to pull over,and leap from the truck
