Morning Halibut Blitz In Carlsbad 3/14/15
« on: March 14, 2015, 03:03:09 PM »
Haven't been out to fish much lately except for last Saturday's Bat fight.

Got a new LC, the Jacksmelt 110. The color of the lure is really well done, and today's outing proved that.

Here is the LC.



Started casting in the goon with conditions just epic this morning. wind was blowing about 5 MPH. This kind of threw me off a little. I thought there would be bigger waves with the wind, well there wasn't! Started fishing the dropping tide 2 hours in. First spot yielded no hits. Decided to change it up and then it was on.

Strong surge didn't make it easy, but after a few casts I was getting the LC right were I wanted it. I kept the line tight, but not to tight, and I felt a nice wobble. First Strike up the day was a fun battle.



Then the blitz hit. Very next cast I hook up again.

same area.





On the next cast I hook up again. It was alot of fun. Wow! The feeling!

3 hali's and didn't lose any in the rocks and I still had my lure.



Then in the same area 5 minutes later I get another strike.

Biggest of the day. and another one I didn't lose in the rocks.



Started fishing some to try to get 5 for the day, I guess I reeled it in to fast cause I saw a big white flash come up from the bottom. That was the legal I was looking for. Today wasn't meant to be. Tied on the Kroc and got a nice strike, but I missed it. Felt good to be back out there and it was beautiful outside there this morning.

Thanks for reading and good luck out there.

Oh and check out this nice hole I saw from the rocks on the beach! Wow! Tried to pull something out but it never happened.

Well damn!  That's one fine halibut sesh, Joel!  Bummer about the missed opportunity, but that's the stuff that always seems to happen when you least expect it.

PM me your addy, I'll get a few stickers out to you in the mail.
You can't catch them from your computer chair.

It's all Tom and Don's fault! They "hooked" me on mud marlins and sharks!
