Don says "Meet Charlie - our newest addict"

I met Charlie at the DFF meeting last week and set up plans to fish on Sat. in the a.m.  It was his first time fly fishing the salt.  He tried several of my rigs with different line weights etc.  The attached pic show his efforts in the Los Alamitos Bay.  We hit the trough between the tides and had no moving water in the Bay which meant no bass - so we switched to the ocean side.  I picked up one powerful little butt and nothing else.

Don's weekly update

I caught six little bass in Los Alamitos Bay Sat. a.m.   These bass pull hard for their size!  Then I
tried the ocean side, no action, no birds, no bait fish , no bites.

More fishing with Don!

I wrecked my camera in the salt water, and have finally got a new one that is waterproof.  I have been away on vacations and fished mid-west warm water and took grand kids fishing.

I am trying to post some pics etc. to encourage others to get the blog going. How about it everybody? 

The Surf Perch bite has slowed down, the size is good but I’m only getting a few to hand.   I switched to fishing at Long Beach till November.  The water is warm and the fishing is good.  This a.m. I got five species totaling 11 fish.  My first Spotted Bay Bass!
