    We left wednseday night a little late. Capt. Greg waited for the bait boat to arrive and did a kind of direct transfer as he said the bay water was so warm it was killing the deans in the receiver. Bait was an issue this trip. We headed to the mushroom area and awoke with the fleet at about 90...

    I fished the evening high tide move after work. The weather wasn't nice, the surf was crossed-up, and not many nugs. I found crabs easy, but a good hole in the shorebreak took a while.

    Tried solana and del mar after work. I bought some new minnows at Bluewater I wanted to try out.

    We heard all the skunk reports from 8-6, but thought that meant good things to come. We started on the 390 at grey light.

    I'm interested in getting a canner, but they're pretty expensive for something you don't use that much. Best price I've seen is $230. It does 19 pint/14 quart jars at a time.
