I was at Los Alamitos Bay on Friday, a day with large swells that you may have heard about (houses nearly flooded) and while there weren't any actual waves in the bay, there were very definite surges that were strong enough to completely counter the outgoing tide. I noticed right away that the tide seemed to be going the wrong way, but then it would straighten out.

I really noticed it at the point across from 55th place, where they extended the sea wall for the new house. It was an outgoing tide, but water was ripping *in* around that point. I caught the only non dink of the day in the eddy. After landing and releasing the fish, I looked up to try that spot again, and now the water was going out!

I have never seen that before. I watched it for a few minutes and it was regular. It had to be swell surge. I definitely felt it while trolling. I was kicking at a steady pace, but my speed went up and down as the surge came and went.

Like I said, there weren't any noticeable waves, just changes in the tidal flow. I thought it was really odd.

It wasn't until I got home and saw the news about the heavy swell that I put it together.

Always something new!

That would have freaked me out for sure. I was there on Saturday and there was all this oil and garbage in the water, maybe that's why

That is crazy glad it was really no big deal just a strange occurrence for you. The oddest thing that ever happened to me on the water was the La Habra Earthquake. I was on the water in HH when it hit and the water started bouncing me from below. In the dark what a crazy feeling that was.

Whoa! Earthquakes freak me out as it is. If one hit while I was on the water, I'd lose my mind!

It was crazy i was completely solo and in the dark. Not to mention i live in La Habra and my wife called to tell me the house was recked inside to hurry home. I have never kicked so hard in my life.
