So the canal did not disappoint! Friday night about 45 minutes past high I caught a nice 36" keeper. Saturday night was really fun I got to my spot about 1AM and starting plucking squid out of the canal. Tally for the night, 3 skate, 6 small Stripers the biggest about 27", several small blues. 13 fish altogether not counting the skates. I had something, probably a big blue, bite one of my hooks in half! A 7/0 Gamatgaksu Circle hook!! I stood there looking at the hook amazed and kinda glad I didnt land whatever it was and have to deal with those teeth. Scored a boat ride (36' Chris Craft Corvette) Sunday and hit Cleveland Ledge for about an hour and half and managed a fluke about 18".
Oh and the wife a good time as well!! I let her drag me around Saturday shopping which she rewarded me with for buying me a new rod over at Red Top. One of the new Penn Power rods. My Shimano Sedona 6000 is going on this one.
Now I'm COMPLETELY exhausted and need a nap!
