|Someone was out float tubing in pure darkness|
Yesterday I had planned to fish Los Alamitos Bay at night but a last minute call from The Major changed that idea. Since it was his last few days in California before he gets reassigned to the War College, I met all the boys at the local brewery instead of getting my line wet. So today I decided I would make up for that.
Its been forever since I've fished the surf especially at night. The last time was years ago when Kyung and I slammed the corbina around midnight. I believe that was one of the first corbina I ever caught on a fly. With the tide charts predicting a strong tide, I was confident I'd get on some fish. Casting the Long Beach Leader system took some getting used to, I hadn't used that system in such a long time, it was hard to get the timing down. Trying to cast your entire floating line with 20 or more feet of straight mono is a pain in the ass. No wonder I stopped fishing here years ago.
|No luck tonight. Perhaps another night.|
Fishing tonight was slow. I arrived just after the sun set and fished to about 10pm. Not one strike. I did see a very small bait fish swimming everywhere . With the headlamp I could see they were greyish with blue eyes. Not sure what they were though. I tried a hoonie, hoonie 2 and a small clouser after I noticed all the small fish. None proved effective. Decided to call it quits as I need to wake up early for trout tomorrow. I did see another flyfisherman out there in a tube. What a nutcase. Speaking with him briefly on the way out, he let me know that he managed a few dink sand bass.
