Just hard bottom with a bunch of bait and life. Only reason I fished that spot was to set up drift to be just outside the MPA. I'll take lucky...

I picked up few gallons of gas last week of June and it was over $8 bucks a gallon. Gas in Oceanside harbor was $4.29 two weeks ago.
I picked up a Dodo a couple weeks back, we must have seen 12-15 swimmers, but only could get one to go. Others would eat chunks, but not live...
Sounds like a good problem to have...YFT or BFT...I want to have that problem.

Nice. I'll be down there in two weeks. How was surf? last time I was there the 6-8 footers made fishing a potential hazardous activity
I have checked 7 foot plus on Alaska Air, but had to pay $25.00 each way
Thanks for making my day in office bearable!
7-8 miles out of Newport heading towards 14 mile

I was out yesterday and had a hook up at 12 knots with brown and orange maurader. Unfortuneally, the wire held up but the knot at swivel gave way...
I thought I had a fish of a lifetime when we picked up a 55 pound YFT in early August. I like yours better, do you want to trade?
makes my head hurt. thanks for sharing.
