168.0 San_juans__may_2009_048-thumb San_juans__may_2009_047-thumb  Pisco Sicko 24.0 May 16, 2009 WA Day 2 of the secret expedition involved some exploration, and bush-whacking, leading to a beautiful secluded beach. Again, Janni was into fish almost from the beginning, and for most, if not all, of the day had a higher catch total. I did eventually redeem myself by going for quality over quantity. First fish for me was a 24.5 under-ling that was released. Next drift picked up this piggy of a cabbie, 24". This location had a real tight zone where the fish were located, in a spot that PBs would fear. After this fish, the tide moderated and the bite was off, so on we went on in our exploration.
