Fun with Bait 8/1/2015
Looking at the tide tables, it looked like Saturday would have it's daylight low tide around 11 am. I decided to sleep in and catch up on some rest, then go fish the flats. I finally got to the parking lot to fish the Diamondhead side of the flat at 10:30 am. The water was already really low due to the "Blue Moon" spring tide effect. I decided to use my spinning gear and chuck bait - squid strips - and ended up catching seven of these papio and one blue goatfish. All young fish and all released to fight another day (despite their being a good size to eat).
