10-5 & 10-6: Canal/Back Beaches

Met up with Ray G at the Canal's west end. A half hour before he showed, I managed a 32 incher on the first cast and a few smalls. But it was as dead as it has been in weeks after that. I provided the only entertainment by falling flat on my face in the mud bank as we went our separate ways.

I then went to the east end for the last 45 minutes on the west running. Hate to tell you this Ray, but you know the rest. A fish on every second or third cast, mostly 24-28 inchers, but managed another 32 incher before everything died at slack. All hitting very close to shore, within 20 ft. There was a brisk east wind bellying the line and I probably didn't detect at least half of the hits and missed a bunch of taps. The wind got worse and I split for a nap.

An hour or so before dawn, I hit one of the outer beaches expecting nasty conditions. Well the surf was certainly up but the wind laid down to near calm overnight. Unfortunately, monkey weed had moved in heavy in some spots, moderate in others, so I had to move around a lot. Spent more time cleaning lines than anything else, and it just wasn't happening out there on either eels or flies. Hopefully a lot of this junk will blow offshore when the winds turn around on the weekend.

10-6: Canal a.m and p.m.

My father got another 5 early a.m. the biggest being 31" and I got down there for the west tide(5-9:30) and we picked up another 10 and only saw one 32" fish caught. We were fishing near the Herring run. I tried eels for first time. Got 2 runs but they must have been small. Many 18-24" fish started breking and pouring through at around 9 p.m. so I switched to a "Mr. Bunker" swimmer lure and that was working well. Got tired of catching the small ones so I headed home. Probably be back tomorrow in search of the big one.
