Could not stay home any longer. The wind was twenty, and I had to fish. Stopped by between the piers, Surfmasters was having a get togther. Said hi to a few friends and headed to one place I knew the wind would not stop me. Set up a few rods and drank a cold one. Had a rod go slack and caught a Bull red around 40". The bite died and I fished for trout. Caught a few dinks and sit back down for a cold one. Had a double on the surf rods, both were reds. The tide started going out and the current was ripping through. I was picking up the last rod. It took off, going down stream, I fought it for a good ten minutes before it stuck. I knew I had a good ray, I battled with it for twenty more minutes and got it to where I could see the wings. I was pulling hard when it made a move away from me, the line broke and the reel hit me in the face. I was under water before I knew what had happen. The fish had won, and had won good.

Battle Scars, it will heal. Could have been in the lip and then you would have to drink thru a straw.... LOL Glad you got a few, it's been too rough to get out around here for sure.

the water was a good trout green when the tide started going out. I was not prepared for the current, I was drift fishing with the big rods. The trout were in the eddys, and were pounding the shad and finger mullet. It looked like a mullet had a death wish to swim out in the current. The tout were all small, but fun to catch.

You are the redfish catching king for sure, every report of yours has always got a nice bull in it, not bad. Sorry to hear about the whiplash but it sure would make a nice entry into the House of Pain collection that Yakmon has going on his website.

Likely story!!!!

Those of us that have fished with you know the real story.
Not likely any ol' ray whipping up on you.
You grabbed Karen's rod one too many times and she had enough,,,I bet next time on the beach, when her rod goes of,, you won't even get out of your chair!!! LOL
nice report,,, just no points for us,,,, see ya later Lou

fishing injuries

A couple of weeks ago I was battling the seaweed on my long rod when my line snapped. The reel shot up at me like a bullet, and one of the front clamps nailed me in the lip. It put a pretty good little gash right above my lip.
