Location: Somewhere over the rainbow
|Finally was able to save my grades and get out on the water.
I arrived at the pier by roughly 6 am. It was dark, but at the end there were many fisherman. There was a pretty good mackerel bite, with a few bonito thrown in. I fished with a sabiki tipped with mackerel strips, but after a few fish, it was tangled beyond recovery. I rigged up with a micro-jig, sweetened with a strip of mackerel belly, and continued to fish. The fish were all over it. Once the sun came up the fishing slowed considerably. The mackerel bit intermittently, but the lizardfish started coming in hordes. I was able to get a few more mackerel, giving the smaller ones to the shark fishermen. After an hour of fishing, I heard one of the shark setups start screaming. He grabbed the rod, and set the hook into a 4-5 foot thresher shark. It jumped a couple times before getting loose. By now I had to go, so I packed up, cleaned off my gear, and headed home.
