I don't fish much when the weather is hot.I saw where that cool air was coming in & just had to go.I left home at 8:10 P.M. and fished until 3:00 A.M.I started at Long Beach and worked the reefs and shoreline to the West.
Right off I started catching Lady Fish,I would move on until I finally found a stretch about 100 yards long holding trout.During the whole trip I only caught 6 keeper trout & 1 red.I caught all the trout on my ole trusty Yozuri L Minnow Black back Silver side and White belly.Yozuri doesn't make this one any more but they do make one very similar.Yozuri 3DS Minnow 70 SP Suspending, 2-3/4 inch 1/4 oz. ( sorry there is a lot of Japaninese writing on the box,but no color code ).Just Google Yozuri 3 DS Minnow 70 SP as their are several different colors.I also change the hooks out from # 8 that comes on it to a # 6 Gaimakatsu stock # 47107.
I caught 6 trout in six hours ,so they weren't jumping in the boat.The strange thing is the first trout I caught was a 24 inch Male trout.He was grunting the whole time I was unhooking him.All 6 trout were males and they were grunting also & I also cleaned them today and verified they were all males.By my standards a 24" male trout are few and far between.I also had one 22 " and another one 20 inches.The other 3 were 14 to 16 inch fish.I tried the Mirrodine XL with no luck at all.There was no catch & release as all of these fish were inhaling the lure.
Six hours and Six trout ,not an outstanding trip but I really enjoyed it.Good Luck MM
