Recently I was invited to fish a small lake near the coast. Turned out to be a sweet place Loaded with Carp, Tench, Sac Perch and Northern Strain LM. It really is a killer place... This is one of those places you have to hold close and i'm gratefull someone was kind enough to share it with me. That and he's a hell of a nice guy. It's situated very close to the beach so I stopped and took in the sunset tonight over the Pacific In Santa Cruz. It was stunning. The photo of the light house is exactly how it looked. Sight fishing for the carp on the fly is possible and I will be going back often. Today we fished hair rigs with a special rock salt maze and that definitly did the trick. It was fun and it's not a gimme with light spinning gear thats for sure. Unfortunalty no Tench. No sign of them. Will head back tommorow to try and get one.
