    Short and sweet, I went fishing with Lal on the Ducky today, Thursday, 10-25-18. We launched out of Davies at 6am. Our first destination was Izor's Reef. The water temps exiting the harbor were 64 degrees, they rose to 65.5 at the reef. It was a slow pick as we hit stone after stone, The winds were calm, but there was zero current, not good and we knew that after a full moon fishing expectations were not great?

    Lal has over 30 stones marked in this area and we hit most from the lower reef on to the upper reef. The meter lit up like crazy, yet the fish were not that hungry. I was fishing with rubber hooks as I caught one Bass out of 12 strikes, while Lal managed to release about ten in the first hour. The good thing about Izor's Reef and why we fish it is the quality of the fish. Lal managed to land a 4.5 and a 5 pound Sand Bass, while getting Bitch slapped on one.

    I finally got lucky and landed a decent 3.5 pounder.

    Some Pictures.

    The Reef died at about 10 a, although it was anything but solid fishing, we did catch and release about 25 Bass, with some Calico Bass to two pounds. We also caught and released a few Sculpin.

    We moved on to fish the Shoe, and found some great hard bottom and rocks loaded with fish and bait. It seemed most of the areas with fish had lockjaw.

    I did have a blast on one of my hookups, as a Mako Shark about 30 pounds inhaled my plastic. It was fun watching the little guy jump and jump again, like a Dorado. I got him within ten feet of the boat but Lal wanted no part of a Mako coming close to the Ducky and cut the line.

    We stopped on so many areas with great meter marks, it was crazy. We managed to catch and release another 15 mixed Bass, mostly Sand Bass. We yelled Uncle at 12:30 and were on the Trailer at 1:30 pm. Maybe the wind hit 8 knots, and the marine layer yielded at about 10 am to full clear sunny skies. A great day on the water.

    Thanks Lal, a fun day for sure.

    Always a good report. Nice quality fish and probably a good idea to keep that Mako away from the Ducky. Thanks for the report

    All those teeth scare me on a rubber boat-NO way !!!
    On another note I was just reading about the Prowler collision , we were headed to the shoe at 25 mph and on a collision course with an oil boat-we clearly had the right of way but they never altered couse so I stood down and waited for him to pass us. No contest with an oil boat. !!
    Just another fun day on the water !!
