    San Lucas Cove 7/12 - 7/19

    Sorry for the late post. Got back Tuesday 7/19, from a week at San Lucas Cove. My 16 year old son and I went for a little bonding time. The drive down was fine, except for a few 5-6 mile stretches of road repairs, where they detoured us onto the "auxiliary roads" off to the side. That...

    269 & vicinity 8/28

    Launched from Dana Point around 9:30 for a late morning/afternoon trip to look for paddies. At the bait receiver, I was given a choice of chovies or dines. I opted for the latter. I noticed that the water in the harbor was 63 degrees. On the way out to the 269, I saw the temp drop as low as 59...

    279 & Vicinity 8/17

    No fish, but I think it's still good info. Took a quick run out to the 279, and headed east from there. Bait was a mix of dines and small chovies; all pretty weak. On the way out (from Dana Point), saw some water temps up to 72 degrees. As we got nearer to the bank, it dropped as low as 68...

    OC paddy hopping 7/7

    My brother and I launched at Dana Point around 7:00, got a scoop of straight sardines, and headed out towards the 279. Half the bait died pretty quickly. We got out near the bank, and started looking for paddies. Water was a pretty constant 71 degrees, and beautiful blue. We couldn't find many...

    Note to self - clean halibut at home! Domes - 6/21

    Just a quick post from work (pictures are in the camera, at home; sorry). Launched at Dana Point, got straight sardines for bait, and ran down to the domes. The water looked nice - 64/65, and clean. For us, fishing was slow around the kelp. Went over and drifted around the outflow from the...

    I'm getting ready to take my 12 year old son down in a week or so. We usually stay at San Lucas Cove, and love it there. But we haven't been there for a couple of years, and I know things change. I'm interested in hearing the conditions of the bathrooms/showers, and general info about the...

    My 10 year old son and I just returned from the East Cape, 9/25 – 10/1. We found that Bill Collector (Rod, and his wife Barb) have a rental there. It’s actually the bottom floor of their house, but is totally a separate unit, with full amenities. It’s beautiful, and Rod...

    8/6 Local OC banks

    The day started out great. Launched at Dana Point with my 10 year old, got some nice chovies from the bait operation, and headed out. Started at the 279 as it began getting light, searching for paddies. My fish finder broke (after four years of dutiful service), so I have no idea of the...

    I'm looking for any kind of information on camp grounds and boat launching possibilities in the east cape area. My ten year old son and I usually stay at San Lucas cove, just south of Santa Rosalia (love that place). But I'm looking for something a little more exotic. We've got a 16'...

    Dana Point, 5/15, slow day

    Took a buddy of mine and a couple of little tykes out today. We just fished the kelp, from Dana Point north. It was sloooow. Couldn't even find a wide open mackeral bite to keep the kids happy. Bait was straight sardines. Water was about 62, and murky green. Nobody seemed to be catching anything...

There was a current line paralleling the coast all the way up; inside of it was red tide, outside, the water was a little cleaner. Temps ranged from 58 and change to 60. Fishing was decent at most spots w/kelp (red tide or...
