Third week in a row that I went straight to the ocean to fish after my shift was over. 

Went to half Moon Bay jetty and my first cast had my reel peeling.  For sure it felt big n fought hard n I thought it was a sting Ray.  It ended up being a nice striper that hits my lucky craft minnow that I bought online for $15 but was intended to catch them smaller games off the surf like surf perch.  The waves were pounding so I could not get to the bottom rocks.  I got it to the rocks when a kid went down to help me land it.  One hand on the line and the other hand trying to land that fish.  When you do that, you tend to lose fish if the fish decided to make another run. 

Yep, you betcha, fish off but my goal was to see what that was and to break the virginity of my new lure.  Also it was my first surf striper and I lost it.  Technically I did not lose it.  I would have flown that fish onto the rocks on my own.  I casted out the next one and had a big strike again but no stick.  I checked my hook and yep, it was all bended

The one that got away from me yesterday evening.  I was going to catch and release anyway so trying to land that fish, I no care.  I've catch plenty of stripers in my days but from the river system so nothing is new to me cept for that goal of catching one from the salt water system. 

Now I know the spot, i got a week to pre meditate my fishing tactics till then. 

Life is meaningful when you have something to look forward to ya know?

I'm not going to lie folks....but one time me and a friend went carp fishing...and for some oddest reason, we both keep losing them as we reeled them to shore....it was like someone just cut the line as they got to the shore. but line and hook still okay...wierd as hell... Thinking back....there was probably something there day with us we couldn't see.. :-X and we both probably got 10-15 bites each...not a single catch....embar assing, but more creepy now that I think of it...lols

oh yeah, plenty of times when I went fishing alone....which isn't too bad when there are other people fishing around you...or they can see you and nearby...but I use to be such a bad ass..yeah..may be more like a dumbass....tha t I would go to like ducking secluded ass areas and fish alone...miles away sometimes from the nearest town or another human....

I remember exactly why I stopped doing it...there was this one time...i was fishing alone...and all the sudden I heard a gun shot....I pack my stuff and thought...okay this is a really bad idea to be going fishing in the middle of nowhere alone....lols

but the most creepy time was when all the sudden, I saw a little kid....just running along the bank...as he approached closer to me I turned around and look, and it was like he didn't even noticed me...I didn't think much...just thought he was jogging, and there were a little town nearby.....hmm mm  it wasn't after an hour, that it dawn on me...maybe that kid was a POJ DAB! damns! i can't believe how stupid I was sometimes back then...lols

carps get scared really easy
they have good eye sight too
their eye are located almost at the top of their head

you want to scope them up with your net
prefer a long net and do it before they get close to the shore line

once they come near the shore and see you
they going get scared and jump and move to unhook
they got small mouth

always bring a big long net when fishing for carp
don't think you can grab them with your hand like bass
