Got out briefly the other night. Had to cut the trip short but it is just as well.

Incoming tidee and the bait was scattered. Did not hear any bass but there was small blues everywhere.

I'm betting the farm that Monday night is going to be very good.

Managed to get out for a little while on Monday night at CISP.

Weed was not too bad on the last of the outgoing. Found a fish popping but could not get 'em.

Wind picked up, tide turned, and the weed got bad. Called it a night.


I wish the water would drop to 65 degrees. It that too much too ask?

Is it safe for a solo kayak run tonight in the back bays? I am concerned about the amount of current with all of this water. Let me know your thoughts. Also, how are the weeds?

Was thinking about it,but decided to maybe wait another week to launch the Ambushes for some late night out-going action....Conditions should be much more favorable and hopefully some more consistent action awaits...

barrel, i hope you read this. do you service tica reels? i have a libra sa3000 that i've used only a couple of times, and the anti-reverse is not working. the reel will wind forwards and backwards no matter what i do. i've tried rinsing it, flipping the little switch, etc., but it's still broken. i know that i can send the reel to Washington state for repair, but that will probably be a two or three week ordeal. thanks.

Finally have an opportunity to fish Thursday late afternoon. Haven't seen many posts. Where are all the yakers? Tide will be low and the wind will probably blow, but I don't think I'll get rained on. Anyone else heading out the next few days?

Got out last night at CISP. Water clarity ranged from bad to OK. Weed was bad when slinging bio-plugs but was not bad at all using plugs.

Wish I had the time to hang around for last 2/3rds of outgoing. Bait was mostly up in the sod from 7pm-12:30am.

Occasional, scattered pops. Some sounded pretty good.

Landed one schoolie.

Can't wait for the weekend when I do not have to worry about what time I get up the next day. I think night time will be the right time Fri. and Sat.

Fishhead,
I'm still in the process of rigging myself. I want to keep it relatively light and simple.
I can list a whole bunch of goodies but can start with what I consider the basics.
PFD, of course.
I wear my waders and a aquaskinz drytop.
I have mounted one scotty rod holder and will eventually add a second.
I keep eels in an inexpensive mesh bag.
There are waterproof lights that you can mount for safety. I have a headlamp and pelican lamps. 99% of the time there are no boats around but if there is, I get over to the side and turn on my lights. They see me.
Paddle leash and rod leash are a good idea.
Safety whistle.
Small hand gaff.
A couple of waterproof containers. I have small ones a little bigger than cigarette packs for cell phone, etc, and one the size of a lunch can for food.

No special fishing accessories. I carry or 2 plug bags and use my usual array of plugs and plastics.

Got out Sunday night at CISP.
Managed a lil' guy right before sundown (too small to rank as a schoolie) on a popper.

Worked the usual haunts pretty good. Weed was not bad to atrocious. This was mostly due to low water and eels. Plugs stayed pretty clean.

Water temp is down but not dramatic. I guess about 63-65. Fish are definitely more active.

I wish there had been more water to sling eels properly. Bass were pinning small bait on the flats and all I had was plugs and eels. The fish were tailing in shallow water. Can't believe I forgot to bring any plastics.

The Violent World of Hermit Crabs
I pulled up on a sand/mud bank to work a point. I left my mesh bag with the eels hanging off the yak to keep 'em in the water. I came back and found a few green crabs on the bag (which I thought weird since the eels were alive) and many hermit crabs.

I put my light on the water and realized there were hundreds of hermit crabs hanging around. Looking closer, I realized I must of stepped on a razor clam and the hermits were feasting on it.

But was stranger was that there were alot of hermits not near the clam but were none the less fighting like all hell with each other. I mean they were really going at it. You think of these harmless little crabs and realize down on their level, this is a violent place. Really cool.

Anywho, wrapped it up at 1am with no more fish. Will try again tomorrow night. All I need is another two feet of water to do it right and I should have it with the tided beig later.

Oh yeh. If you are fishing between 51st and CISP, watch out for the line of crab pots running back there. You don't want to lose a plug on them.


Pots


Still sort of a summer pattern.

egg, great report. How much we will see is limited only by how close and how long we look. I gotta start yacking, I can't get close enough on foot.

Egghead, I've been anxious to try CISP. Haven't fished it since the Spring. Almost always go to Rainbow. Might try Thursday at dusk if the wind cooperates. Let me know if you're heading out.

Hey Guys,
I'll be out tomorrow night. After that, it will be the weekend of the 6th.

It will be great to hook-up with some other barners. Shoot me an email.

Seeker, do you have a yak?
