monster crabs = monster merkins


Well its been an interesting Corbina season in the Southbay this past summer. Weird wind patterns early in the season kept the water temps fluctuating, never settling in and the Corbina were very spooky and unpredictable. The past week we have seen more fish than the entire summer with water temps hovering around 70 degrees and holding steady. It’s like the season just started; very strange. My friend Elliott called me yesterday day and said hey Q lets go Corbina fishing. I unfortunately had some other plans this morning but I left him a few monster merkins on the front porch and pointed him in the right direction. I told him that if he didn’t pick up those flies I was going to use them the following day, LOL. The sand crabs this late in the season are very large and my old fishing buddy Jimmy has been on these big fish using large, oversized pink merkins. Needless to say I think Elliott hooked and bumped 10 fish this morning and faired one giant. WTG Elliott, that’s how to get it done buddy! You’ve become a new official member of the Corbina Patrol. So happy you connected. –Al Q
