Well, beasts are returned to owners. Norman and I did some fishing off red bluff high tide. Hmm. The aussie salmon are about. I've been fishing a long time. I'm no great fisherman, but I don't lose a lot of fish once I've hooked them. Today I lost 5 in a row, before moving spots and landing 1... I lost them all trying to land them - as i often do - by ski-ing them up onto the rock with the wave. But today they all came off at that point. I was using a very soft-tip firm butt rod (yes, yes. Ha ha) and they were very average - by the looks of them and by the one I got out - little salmon. I'm not sure if their mouths were too soft or the rock too sharp - but very frustrating.
