SD bay 5/20 slow day butt

Headed out the door at 6:15am. Arrived at Kellogg beach launch off rosecrans around 6:35 and launched by 7ish am I’d say. Threw some plastics on the way to the bait barge. Had one bit but couldn’t get it to stick. Get bait for $20 a mix of chovie and dines with a 4:1 ratio of chovies to sardines.
Wind was pushing east and tide was pulling west which had me sitting dead still. Thank god for my hobie as I needed to troll and fish to cover ground and find some halis. Had one Rake around 7:45 and nothing else... tide started turning around and pushing my kayak in along with a gentle breeze which made for ideal drift. 9am still just that one rake, 9:30 a small bite looked like bass, 9:45 a solid bite on bottomi let her eat it and minutes later I have legal hali. 10am and I’m on with another. And then one other bite after that. It was a really slow day besides my two fish. Loaded up and gone by 11.

You call that a slow day? I'm hoping for a slow day myself soon.

THat's good stuff right there. That foil pack looks lust like the one that made my wife fall in love with me. She brought a piece of Salmon to a BBQ, where were all eating Steak. NO one knew how to cook it, including me. So I put together a pack like yours. OMG, one of the best pieces of fish I have ever had. Congrats on your slow day!

Just to be clear 2 halibut is a great day for me and my personal best for halibut in one day. It was definitely a quality over quantity type of day. The action was slow but the day was great nonetheless.
