Day IV

How to catch a Giant Trevally:

  1. Leave the bonefish rod at home.
  2. Stare at water till the sun goes down.

I figure that’s how it’s done, but I didn’t see any today. Got off work and had 2½ hours of light so I went to the short pier and scanned the water for a half hour. Nothing. I put on a repeat performance at the point, where the current rips so hard I almost got swept away. When I strip line out the current pulls it so tight I can barely get a cast off. I can’t use a stripping basket to hold the line ’cause I’m out waist-deep in the spot I expect the GT’s to be (which is also where people say they’ve seen them). Still nothing. I try another point. Nada.

I’m going to have to learn how to say ‘nothing’ in a few more languages just so my journal won’t sound so repetitive.

I’m still feeling my way through the regs here, and we are allowed to fish Oceanside after all.  A guy I worked with showed me a spot that looks awesome; he said he always sees GT’s there. Wednesday I get my bike shipped over and I’ll be pedaling toward that spot the moment it’s off the docks.

Waiting on Wednesday,
