    release the big ones if you catch them. I've been seeing them for 4 months.

    Hmm, was hoopping last nite, and noticed the boat was missing.

    Wonder how long it will take. I'm going to try for some bones. If I get some intell, I'll kick it out to you.

    Radical Ross...I hate to see a business that's already having a tough time of it, get slammed by BAD rumors!!!
    I just talked to Gordy. He is the brother of Marty, who took over the bait receiver and the bait boat "New Sunbeam" quite a few years ago when his brother died. He is fishing for bait tonight and hopefully will have a load in the receivers tomorrow. He said he had some net issues earlier this week and did not catch bait. He will try to be open this weekend if he can load up this evening.
    THE BAIT RECEIVER IS NOT PERMANENTLY CLOSED!!!
    Since Redondo/King Harbor does not have a launch ramp the boat traffic
    (ie. $) in the winter is pretty bleak for a bait operation there.
    There were a few small Bones in the harbor last weekend and Rocky Point and the kelp line along PV was holding lots of Bones before that wind dropped the water temp.
    Good Luck

    Redondo Sucks!!! Probably best to stay away until it rebounds in a few years?! Try MDR or San Pedro/L.B.
    No Fish... No Bugs... Although Gordy does have some nice 5" or 6" Sardines in the receiver this weekend.
    Marlyn...the hoist was there this morning.

    Both my nephews and I fished the out side of the breakwater. We caught about 30 small bones. It was wide open with every cast. We caught them on fish trap (anchovey) and yellow lead head. Could not believe nobody fishing around us?

    Saba Slayer I was just passing along the info the guy at Rocky Point skiff rentals gave me. You would think he would want the live bait operation going strong as it helps his business.
