Huntington Harbor 9/10

Launch time: 9:30

Take-out: 1:00

Gear: TFO Ticr-x 8 weight, Pflueger Trion reel, Rio Striper 300-grain line, 8-foot leader with 8-pound Maxima for tippet. Olive/white clousers.

Fishing Report: All-you-want baby sandbass plus an occasional cuda right next to the bridge. The cuda’s managed to stay off the boat today, but at least I got to see one darting around in the water in front of my yak. Yeah – catching baby sandies ain’t exactly pelagic fishing, but there’s just something I like about getting a strike on every cast.

Also caught my second-ever angry octopus (first was also in the HH) -- accidentally let it touch the outside of the yack while bringing it in, once they touch that you can’t get them off it until they decide to let go. Sacrificed a clouser to it. Probably better it fastened to the outside hull than the inside.

Because the cudas were around I put on a needlefish fly. The website I learned the pattern from said “you can’t strip it fast enough.” Didn’t get any more cuda but a nice halibut grabbed it.

on the hunt for cuda and you get flatties instead... I'll take that trade :) .... The needlefish patterns I have seen are unweighted and ride hook point down but that looks like a cool pattern... the Halibut clearly like it.
