Nice haul. Let me know your plans for Sun. Looks like SC will be a no go unless you have boats on hold. Looks like OCD's skiff is a go. But unable to get any rentals.
SC boat rentals is slammed this weekend. A waiting list has been established for both Sat. and Sun.
Capitola still has 7 boats open for reservations.
I have one reserved in Capitola and may need to cancel due to heads dropping out. If someone wants to take over the reservations, hit me up and I'll give you all the info. I will cancel after work Fri. at the latest.
I'll echo the swimbait/hard jigs crushing the hungry fish. It seems more advantageous to not have to keep rebaiting and use a swim/hard bait jig to crush the monsters. One side tid-bit, use a teaser fly about 12" up from the hard bait and await a second tug while fishing. Double your pleasure!
Colors working well this year:
Jigs: (Short and fat ones working slightly better than the long and thin) Black and silver - purple and black - yellow and black - Nickel plated *polished (Smooth and Hammered)
Teaser feathers: (Any with mylar strips) yellow and orange - yellow and red - pink and white - pink and yellow - red and white
I have a friend, Harry Boos who hand ties the teaser flies and hand paints the hand molded hard jigs as well. You may have seen his stuff in stores a few years back. Much cheaper than buying from a store (1/3 the price). Only kicker is you'd have to visit his home in Sunnyvale to purchase. No website/phone order ability. I could get a fairly large order together in preps for his next batch. I have a box filled with misc. ones I could photo or show to anyone interested.
Yeah, I would like to see the flies and metal jigs...
