Anybody interested in fishing Johnson's Beach tomorrow? The surf report looks good, with winds NE at 10 knots. I'd probably launch around 8:00 from the main parking lot.

Ok guys, I'm going. Hopefully I'll see you out there Spec-tacular. I'll be in a gray Outback. I'm waiting to hear from a couple buddies. Hoping to find a BFT! I have a night owl if anybody wants to meet up about 7:30 at the gate.
Pete- good to hear from you. No problem buddy.

I just got in town a couple hours ago... I'll try and make it out there... I'll be in a dark green Tacoma with a dark green Ocean Kayak... I'm not exactly rigged for BTB, so I might just go bay side... Then again, it depends on if I catch any bait here in the surf outside of the condo...

We had great luck! We made it out there and made it back without losing anything important... Wilbur and I hit glass water when we got there, and the swell picked up quickly...

I caught my first ever fish on a Sabiki rig, learned the water got a lot deeper a lot faster over here, and for the first time ever, I could see far enough down in the water that I could actually see the shadow of the kayak... You guys and gals don't realize how lucky you have it... This is incredible...

Personally, I only caught a couple bait fish, but it was a lot of fun for sure... And relaxing... There were 1000's of mullet on the run and lots of sand colored rays floating about... They're pretty brave as I was within 4 feet of them many a time... I need a longer anchor rope and a better anchor for this surf...

Wilbur had quite a run, but I'll let him tell you about it... I owe him big time for the tackle offering... Going to go buy you some replacements now... Planning tonight's paddle on the way...

Eyc0r- It was good fishing with you today. Spectacular- nice pics of the sharks. Did you lose leaders, or do you have a way of getting the hooks out of sharks?

Accidentally hit send before I was done. Yep, I hooked into a pretty big shark. It ripped off a bunch of line and then came back and jumped in the air near me. Pretty crazy? It spun around and splashed. We were guessing it was a big spinner shark.

Cool. I think we were fishing too close to the sandbar. Next time, if it's calm, I'm going farther out.
