The Child On The Pipe

Catch & release fishing gets HANDLED!

The Child is here, and it’s been good to our local waters.
These sessions took place between July 3rd and early October, on The Pipe in Newport Beach, California. Waya and I were in their heads. We had em’ figured out!
These fish were caught between 45′ and 90′ of water over structure, that had kelp growing on the uphill and downhill side. You had to pull hard to get them into the boat.
I used Kicker 25 Light surface irons, with an 80H TriHelix blank and a Shimano TranX with a buttoned down drag; spooled with 80lb Power Pro and a 50lb Seaguar Fluro topshot.
This was all catch & release fishing, so no fish were harmed.
