Fished Friday and Saturday, skate, 1 kingfish, an hour battle with a ray... (my there were a lot of rays this weekend. I must have seen 50 large rays just crusin the surfline...). We also had one hook up that screamed the drag straight out, played with us for an hour and a half, .. then took off straight out again. Just before spooling me - I had about 20 yards left on the reel, the line broke. I think it broke on the outer bar as I was about to get a couple hundred yards back in with the line. Possible it dove deeper and the line was rubbin in the bar out there.

met oneshot308 for a little sharkin tonight, real bad storms early on, kept raining off and on. one shot left around 11 and said take a pic of ur catch after i leave just joking around of course. well not 15 minutes after he left my far rod starts tapping, takes off and it was fish on. at one point thought he was gonna spool me, he took a good 325 of my 350 yards of 17 lb test straight over the bar. hour later landed him. 8 ft sand tiger, measured, tagged and released.

Andrew Ill be out there all weekend if we dont end up offshore. We yaked baits last weekend and had nonstop action. Look for a newer silver tacoma with cap and brush guard. Feel free to stop by for a beer.

Those of you planning on fishing this weekend, keep in mind the bird closure (which I think will nearly cut in half the number of vehicles allowed). I do not know exactly where the closure begins, but I think they have a rule that equates to something like 12 vehicles per mile, so how ever many miles of closure times 12 is how many vacationers will be disappointed this weekend.

My point... make sure you have a back up plan!

Im not sure how far we will go.. I like to go further south to try and avoid the tourist but with the yak ive found it doesnt really matter where you fish just as long as you get your baits past the bar. We will either be out on my cousins boat tuna fishing saturday morning or we will be on the beach by 7-730 at the latest.
