I recently stumbled on Surf/Beach Fishing (fishing the ocean but from the beach, not a boat or pier) and decided to give it a try. I used the recommended bloodworms and caught a Yellowfin Croaker on the first cast! However, one thing they don't tell you about wading into the waves is how tired you'll be afterwards. Passed out for a few hours in the car!

Well, I think I'm just going to use this thread as sort of my digital diary since I've read that it helps to chronicle your successes (and failures). The details I provide in my post are mostly for me to check back on and remember my tactics and conditions. I fished back to back days and here's what I got.

In San Diego/Poway Lake, I ventured out at the 7am opening time when we had light/medium rain. Most of the fish were hanging out at REALLY deep levels probably because of the warmer temperatures down there. My HumminBird Fishin' Buddy registered medium/large fish but all the way down at 50 - 90 ft. depth.

I caught two bass for the day, both on the Rapala Shad Rap (my new favorite lure). I gotta admit that crankbaits make me feel more involved versus plastics, although I know plastics have a better chance of landing larger fish.

LURE: Rapala Shad Rap
LOCATION: Casting towards shoreline in eastern alcove
RETRIEVE: Quick with 2-3 short jerks ("tap-tap" reel)

LURE: Rapala Shad Rap
LOCATION: Casting towards shoreline in southeastern main shoreline
CONDITIONS: Light to Medium Wind; 74 degrees; less current at location; cast right into front of weeds
RETRIEVE: Quick with 2-3 short jerks ("tap-tap" reel)

This one's from a local lake.

LURE: Rapala Shad Rap
LOCATION: Casting towards northern side of Bass Island into the weedline.
RETRIEVE: Quick with "dying shad" 3-4 continuous jerks ("taptaptap" reel)

Aah, that's my red rain poncho reflecting.

The postman was nice to me the other day. I received these two things in addition to a new baitcasting rod/reel combo from Bass Pro Shops.

It was time for a new tackle box. I like this one because it's a soft tackle box that fits everything I typically bring on a fishing trip. It also comes with a complete set of plastic boxes that can be customized to your liking.

I've also been looking for a crankbait that will go deeper past the 10' mark. I selected a crawdad/crayfish color since I spotted this color combination in the water from the natural crawdads living there.

Ok, gotcha. Kind of a neat effect. That crankbait looks pretty sweet.

Went out again today and caught one on the Shad Rap again, also caught on my brand new Bass Pro Shop Baitcasting combo. I love this lure! Also tried my new Rapala DT Crawfish but didn't catch anything. I think the lure's a little too heavy for my rigs so I may need to keep the DT in the tackle box for now.

LURE: Rapala Shad Rap
LOCATION: Casting towards eastern side of Bass Island into the weedline.
RETRIEVE: Quick with 2 short jerks ("tap tap" reel)...fish hit after first jerks. On a side note, imo, this is the "prettiest" fish I've ever caught. Just look at its color and eyes!
