Default Canal 5/14-5/15 Update

I've been jonesing bad for some striper action so once I finished my chores on Saturday I loaded up my daughter and my nephew and hit the canal for an all nighter. Started off at our favorite spot and worked it through the PM high well into slack, skunked. made a coffee run and moved to our secondary spot, worked it until an hour before sunrise. Managed to catch 3 starfish, 1 crab, and a really good sized squid. We could see tons of tinker macks (no mack rigs with us) and several pods of squid.

Had one hook up around sunrise but was not able to seal the deal. Think whatever was on the other end drug me around something as 3" of 65# braid was abraided and my 14' of leader was missing. I also managed to cast off my Sebile Magic Swimmer later in the morning during the AM high.

We still had fun even though it was a rocky start to my season.

Dude thatís a tough 1st outing, it can only get better from here!! Pretty commendable to get your daughter to pull an all nighter fishing with the old man on the side of the canal, i wouldn't have a shot at doing that! Keep us posted on your outings good or bad, trying to decide where to go this weekend. Looks like the weather is getting better

Congrats!! Any size to any of them? Were you fishing around the hering run or crib, had my best luck there and of course at the east entrance. Seems like all the ditch men love the Sebile Magic Swimmer. I am going to buy one when I get around to it just haven't yet. I am going camping at Bay View this year so I am going to be dusting off the corkers and getting the bike ready for that trip.

I can get the 13 year old to go fishing anytime for any length of time. She loves getting out there with me! Might try again for the sunrise/am high tomorrow. It's a tough drive takes me almost 2 hours to get there but if hte fish are there, so am I.
