    Well i went out again tonite.

    Same thing, but just me this time.

    Sun goes down, macks go to SCHOOL....heavy.

    Sabikis, flylined (got too windy) and a weighted dropper loop all worked. Bait of choice was squid.

    Had to look around and find who was catchin the most and "position" myself a lil closer.

    Around 8 the bite started HOT and continued until i left at 830 again. Still biting.
    Caught 17 this time in 90 minutes, the pier is trully INFESTED at night.

    Also got a couple bonitas, shortys around 8 inches (have to be 18???) They werent mack, so im sure they were bonies. Werent sardines either,

    If your close, i suggest an 8pm trip to Belmont is your a mack fan.

    Hey Mike, no size limit on bonito. Iam about fifteen minutes from Belmont pier. Close to the pier, their is a pub called Belmont brewing company. They make their own beer. I like going to get myself a couple of pints of beer before I do some night fishing.

    Hey Mike,

    I went out to Belmont last week and only caught about 4 Mac's also on a Sabiki. I left early about 8pm. This week going to get out there about 8:30pm and catch the late night bite. Pick'n up some glow sticks and make sure to be ready.

    Considering i havent really got into a good bite until 730ish...i was thinkn maybe show up at Belmont Pier around 7. Get the poles in the water by 730 and hopefully run into a HUGE school of macks. If theyre like they were, we should be able to get at least 15 a peice within a couple hours tops.

    The last time I went. Around 9pm some guys caught 9 Mac's in less than five minutes. They were using glow sticks with a hook and a piece of mackeral. The glow stick were floating and whenever they had a fish the thing would look like of those laser light shows. I'll let you know for sure by 5pm tonight. Need to find out how late I'm going to have to stay at the office.

    Sound like you will have the arsenal. I have my own stuff to use as well. But on top of all that, nothings beats the fresh dead and I know that from experience. I'll take fresh dead macs over anything else.

    Sorry Mike, I didn't have a chance to meet you out there. I had to stay at the office late working on presentations and contracts 'till 8pm. I'm looking at going out tonight if my client meeting doesn't run too late. I'll probably get there about 9pm since you said the bite has been late. I only have four to my name so I need to catch more for Saturday.

    Chuy

    Sounds cool man. Check your PM too.
    I'll try it again thursday. I think the mack were interested in the bait fish that were everywhere...the macks were literally jumping out on a feeding frenzy just killin these lil guys...then the seadogs would roll in :cursing:
