    Sorry for the late response. Thursday was a bit slow, but we had a steady pick on smallish calicos. All you wanted bonito when you hit a school. No luck on the yellowtail and didn't see anyone having luck either. We might've missed the morning bite. We hooked up to one of the biggest calicos...

    Bait boat helped us hook some fish during slack tide

    Good tip. I learned that from an old timer who taught me that the oil island boats create the same conditions in Long Beach Harbor. Just wait for them to dock and start fishing. Sand bass city.
