    Had a day off due to MLK Day, Launched out of Davie's arount 5:30 and as soon as I leave the dock, I get checked by Coast Guard for safety gear check up and all was good and done in about 10 min. I went to Nachos for bait, but it was still closed at 6:00 AM. Since I brought some frozen bait, I decided to head out with out any live bait. I only had 3 hours to fish before I had to come back so didn't wanted to waste any time. Inside the breakwall was a mess, with debris floating around everywhere. Saw couple of logs floating around also, so becareful out there.

    Outside wall was not that great either, water color was redish brown and I only caught couple mackerals throwing swimbaits tipped with squid. So, I ditch the wall and went to Izors, arrived there around 7:30 and I was only boat out there then joined in by about 15 more by the time I left. Water was very calm, and flat, weather was great. Water was showing 59.5 at Izors and about same near breakwall.

    I used 3 poles with one sliding sinker with 2 ounce with squid strip, which only produced mackerals. Other pole was 6 ounce dropper looped, fishing the bottom and it produced brown rockfish and a whitefish on squid strip. Other pole was 60g coltsniper with squid strip, also fishing the bottom and let it bounce up and down produced 1 calico and 4 sand bass. Fished 'til 9:30 and my total count was

    2 White fish
    4 Sandbass (All being over 19")
    1 Calico (13")
    1 Brown rockfish
    1 Sheephead (didn't measure, but I would guess about 4 lbs)
    Some mackerals

    All fish went back except one sand bass that was gut hooked. All on squid strip.

    Tailman, the freshwater restriction to two rods applies rarely in the ocean, such as on a public pier. If he had been fishing for ling cod or rockfish or salmon then he would have been only allowed one rod in the water.

    Fishing as he was, on an inshore structure that mostly holds bass, three rigs in the water was perfectly legal. If he wanted to go further out and troll he could have run five or more lines all at the same time, like the big sportfishing boats do, even if he was all alone on the boat.

    Let me guess.... You also paid the additional cost of the 2nd rod license when it doesn't apply to the ocean? Lol, wonder how much money they make on that from unaware consumers

    When my dog and I used to fish the bottom anchored, Biscuit managed all four rods. She'd bark her ass off to wake me up when we got a bite. That dog loved to go fishing!

    Literally says it right in the license breakdown on the DFW website... saltwater allows as many rods as manageable except a few specific fisheries. Second rod stamp is required for a 2nd rod in freshwater only. BD Police at its finest

    South of Point Conception there is no limit on rods when fishing salmon .We used to have a pretty good fisherie off the Ventura/Santa Barbara coast.

    He was using multiple "poles" not rods, so he should be okay. :D
