Changed Tactic For Better Luck

I had been watching other anglers hooking up fish left and right of me and i couldn't. There must be i'm doing something wrong here. So i decided to switch up to a longer rod and more limber tip so i could keep the lure down more in the water column. throw out a few cast and on the next cast, Fish was on. So,by changing tactics sometime it worked. Location-Northern Ca, Tackle- 9' Phenix @ Curado reel, Lure- Hair-raiser gw.JPG 24.JPG , Swimbait, Kastmaster. Etc..
