So I'm down here at the beach for a few days visiting my parents and I went out this morning to see how the fishing was. 20-some degrees initially..and a light breeze out of the north west, which was actually nice because it knocks down the waves. Even with my one-piece fleece jumpsuit on under my dry suit I was still pretty damn cold. Mostly because the fish weren't biting so I didn't have much to do but sit out there. I did hook into a little Spiny Dogfish shark..and got another big bite, but I could only last a few hours as my fingers were starting to get painfully numb.

Tomorrow I'll head out a bit later in the day so it has a bit of a chance to warm up first.. yep









I soaked in the hot tub for about 30 minutes after I got in.. thumbsup

So, that "big bite" was actually Godzilla?

Godzilla continues to be my nemesis. He bends my hooks. Ruins my gear. And today he apparently scared away all the real fish. Bastage.

Notice my pole is now white instead of black? I broke the tip off the old one attempting to walk through a door. My pole tip awareness was low that day.

Bring those chemical hand-warmer packs to put in your gloves. They work wonders.

Tuesday update..

Brutally cold this morning..so I didn't go fishing until after noon. Added a long sleeve shirt and sweatshirt under my drysuit, and an additional layer of socks.. biggrin Was much warmer although my fingers still suffer when they get wet.

The fishing was still pretty poor today though..only three Spiny Dogfish on the hook...

Moonrise last night over the ocean..





Uh..there is a shark between my legs..



Spiny Dogfish..
