Went to the pier to throw down the line - to finish my Skunk-o-rama of a day. Didn't bother Sunday.

    I hear that went south to San Clemente on Sunday tried the light rods and nothing, so through out the big stick with a 3 Oz weight and
    minutes it was 50yrds to the south on the beach. That's not how I usually like to fish the surf...

    It's hard to fish when there is that much current. Funny to think how fast your 3oz sinker was moving. Can't imagine how fast the fish are moving! I'm like you, I have to go fishing so on days like that I try to find some rocks, jetty, etc. to fish behind where the current is not so strong. Normally the fish think the same way!
