South of Half Moon Bay 8-11 Surf



Third time fishing this beach, slightly calmer water than usual, but still some wave action. Fished 6-8a.m.
Started with sinking minnow, snagged and lost it within an hour :(. Switched to large spook style topwater. fun to use, but about 1 out of every 4 casts, the front treble of the topwater would catch the main line and tangle, or a wave would wash the lure over the main line and entangle it. Minnow lure would cast further than topwater despite topwater being an more than ounce heavier.
Several other fisherman around me using bait, did not see them catch anything while I was there.
The ocean took my tackle box when i wasn't paying attention ,lost a few nice lures, finders keepers.
