The Jack Smelt are in and they're biting. We started off the new year well catching dozens of fish.  
It was a nice clear day with no wind also. There were plenty of double hook ups too with all the fish moving through.  
 
Please let me know if these pictures worked too because they look fine to me but lately I've been having some trouble posting pictures.

Johnny,
 
That was a great day out in the surf.
 
You told me that you zip the files before you upload them.  Does the program unzip them when you download to the site you use?  Also you sent me 10 mg files.  You said you shrink them before sending over the internet.  First I shrink them, send them to PhotoBucket, and then it is easy to download to the blog.
 
Here are some of the photos you sent me: (from PhotoBucket)

Now, that looks like fun. Glad someone was able to get out. I am getting cabin fever. Next trip not until Jan. 18/19.

Better than a stick in the eye! Bet we caught more fish than anyone in the county!  Tyler wet waded all day to 4pm in 54 degree water and left wanting just one more fish. Good fun!    Uncle LEW

I use to catch something that looks very much like that jigging beneath the pier at Gaviota when I was like 7 or 8 years old. They were not quite that big, but someone told me they were smelt.

While I've passed the spit several times heading out to sea, I've not fished on it. How does on get out there? Is there a path from the harbor???

If you head out past Brophy's and the Yacht Club onto the breakwater you can follow that out to the spit.  
Once you're there just walk on the wooden pathway on the rocks out to the sandy part of the spit.  
We usually fish the end closest to the wharf

Surf to SY,
 
As I have mentioned before, pictures stored on Picasa web storage are problematic on forums. You should use you own space as provided by your ISP or something like Photobucket, it works. Wink
 
Look at the photos posted by lingcod, they are uploaded to Photobucket and work fine. And, Photobucket will give you the exact img tag to use for your photos.
 
If you wish to use your own web space as provided by your ISP, just contact them. They will provide you the information needed to upload your pictures and you can post them in the forum using the img tags.

Yeah I figured it out finally.  
I posted a picture from Photobucket in the Freshwater post about the Santa Ynez.
