As daylight drains from the sky along the coastline, themes from my long day spent in solitude spread with a warm glow behind my eyes.  I catch what I can catch, and there are things that break my lines and things I let go.

I spent some time exploring new structures in the big bay today. A lot of the setups looked great but weren't holding many fish. Eventually I went to my go to spots and second cast my rod got slammed by a nice Sand Bass. He coughed up a huge ghost shrimp. I immediately switched to a swimbait that was closer in color. The next forty minutes or so I got into some nice bass and one short halibut. Then everything shut down as it will and I headed in.
