    Offshore 8/27 Lots of beautiful empty paddies 267, 209 & 312

    Boycotting business just hurts local owners that many are boaters also The harbor is now ran by a huge company that has taken over the lease that just wants to make money any way they can. They don’t make money off a truck and trailor taking up 2-3 parking spots for 10$ all day when they can...

    Rain Coming=Bugs Crawling?

    That's standard issue
  140. D


    Preferring sardines over chovies obviously depends on species and area fished. Along our coast like in Dana point the calicos will eat the chovies every cast and ignore the sardines most if the time. I'll fish next to jimmy decker , jimmy johnson or jimmy jack corn with anchovies all day in...

    Squid Catalina

    Anyone know if there's a squid boat at Cat that's selling bait tonight into Tommorow morning?? I called Darrell and he said he's local.
  163. D


    Yeah thanks. Pretty much figuring to stop at Catalina for squid. Only problem now is I'm pretty sure Clemente is closed except for 1 small section weds. If anyone sees it differently let me know. Not super familiar with closure website

    Just look at closure and looks like weds is shitty day. Unless I'm reading it wrong

    Got a call from a buddy who wants to head out Tuesday night out of Dana Point for Clemente Island and fish weds.

    Tip of the week FOR BAIT FISHING
