    Wow, forgot what a trip like this was like with a boat in tow.
    Crazy ass fucking drunk drivers, rain, the ralphs market by the ramp is out of everything.
    Glad we brought our own sodas! FCOL
    Weather was wind variable 3-10 knots from every direction. At one point we did a full circle.
    Water was 59ish and clean green. Current was all over the place too- just like the wind.
    Rained on our slickers for about 3 hrs.
    Then some sun and otherwise overcast.
    HINT- We burned 9.2 gallons today and never got farther than 4 miles from the jetty.......
    Driving a center console boat in the rain SUCKS ASS.
    The great thing was 2 sand bass and a lepoard shark were the only junk fish.
    We only lost 2 barely legal fish at boat side.
    If you gotta measure 'um I prefer to throw them back.
    Our total was 5 fish, biggest was 12lbs, smallest was 6.
    All fish caught around 11-12 fathoms.
    3 of the fish came late in the day around 3-4pm.
    6 or so shorts released.
    Bait was live squid from insaine (larrys consession) which I really enjoy fishing.

    The day's catch:

    You guys killed them.

    Papa J and I went out for some islands action and didn't catch anything worth mentioning.

    But we did get to watch them feed the bluefin! That was sooooo Sick. We asked the guys on the feeder boat and he was totally cool and offered to let me get on their boat.

    Instead we pulled the PJ right next to the pen. The view from the hardtop was sick.

    Took some pics. I hope they turn out. I'll let Jason post the pics.

    I would love some hali for the freezer though. I gotta go make some drifts.

    Those fish were all pigged out. 1st time fishing squid. I love it. Halibut hang on them really well. Also the danger in baiting the hook...

    O.K, so now that you've dragged for halibut with squid how about giving some tips on it. Is it better/worse/different then useing dines/chovies etc... Do they pick it up and fuck with it more/less or do they pick it right up???????

    They die pretty quick so we kept changing them out. Halibut pretty much just slurp them things. All fish had the trap deep in their piehole. There is a technique to holding and baiting those damn things without getting bit.
