Rather disappointing evening, arrive at spot to a nice gentle swell. Quickly realized I have forgotten to bring any bait elastics, and that ruined the entire trip. First cast, and all I caught was a pile of sea lettuce, and that repeated itself every cast. Because I could not tie them onto my hooks I quickly run out of bait and had to head home shortly after 6pm.
Think I might store all of my bait elastic in my glove box from now on, all but guarantee that I have same to use.
edit: fixed two spelling mistakes (used wrong words )
