If anyone is looking for lobster bait, there's a massive volume of small macs and sardines 1 mile off ocean beach with small bonito chasing them around. There's so much bait that it's hard to get the bonito to bite, but if you push a little further south toward sunset cliffs and get away from the volume of bait, the bonito bit pretty well on trolled feathers and small jigs. The bonito have a strong preference for zucchini colored feathers. Someone on the radio said La Jolla is the same, tons of bait and small bonito that prefer trolled zucchini feathers.

When the macs are being pressured like that from the boners will they typically not bite a micro jig or sibiki?

There was a ton of bigger bones on the outside of the kelp.
