I went to Las Gatas this morning with Rob Feldman, one of my fellow condo owners and an avid fly fisherman. He had fished the bay several times without success, so I took him to one of my favorite fishing locations, the point at Las Gatas, and we caught several fish. Ron returned to Z last weekend and wanted to fly fish Las Gatas again. We got out early (6 am at Gaviota), and hiked the South Shore trail to Owen' Lee’s nature preserve and fished the rocky point in front of Owens’s palapa.
Rob got knocked down by a wave on the earlier trip, but today the tides and waves were co operative.I caught a small cabria (sea bass) on the first cast. The next cast brought a good sized jack. The next, a larger cabria, I believe I brought to hand 5 or six more jacks and cabria before Rob even got geared up and wet a line. We both caught several more fish before the sun hit the water and the action faded. Just as we were going to start back, I got another good jack though the entire point was by then in bright sunshine. We fished several areas of shaded water on the trail back to La Ropa. Rob got a nice needle maybe two feet long and I landed couple of small cabria .
Missing today was you, Doug. Wish you could have been there.
Thank you, Tom for the fine fishing report,
