    nov15bugs1.JPG nov15bugs.JPG Went hooping locally last night in the Whaler with bro' Dennis. Conditions were great, little wind, strong incoming tide, and surprisingly no sea lions in the spot we fished. Had the hoops in the water right at dark. Bait was frozen sardines and macks kept from fishing trips. First set produced only one but it was a 4 pounder. Tide was slack, then it started moving and we got 4 more on the second set, then 6 on the third. One more set and we were finished with two limits and threw back two more keepers. Great quality tonight with lots of 3 and 4 pounders and only a handful of shorts. Hardly anyone at the ramp when we launched or when we returned? Odd for a Saturday night.

    Good luck!

    Launched at Queen Mary and fished the LA side. Never had any issues in the area we fished.

    I hooped the breakwall last weekend, for not anything ,not even a short or even a single crab! Had fresh frozen good bait,6 ambush nets, did 6 separate pulls, up until 10;00 ,Just wondering if you hooped the breakwall , Or ever hooped the breakwall with any success ??

    Yes, I pulled some out of there. Never any large numbers, just 1-2 per set. Have never got one on the outside of the wall.

    I've never done well at the wall inside or out. I've hooped the wall while divers on our boat caught limits and said it is full of bugs but they don't seem to crawl out into hoops. Just my experience.

    If you fish the wall there are rock reefs you need #s to. Or meter around. If you do fish the wall get really tight look for current pushing thru the wall. This will produce best. Lots of bugs in the wall. Just getting them. Like the other guys say. Divers see it full but they run in the wall deep. The big ones got big by not coming out into hoops !!! Lol good luck.

    Agreed. The few I've caught at the wall have been LARGE. By not coming out in numbers, perhaps the wall remains the safe breeding location that supplies the whole harbor with bugs?

    Count on it being a safe breeding ground deep inside the breakwater. I have dive friends that dive areas of the breakwater that can enter on 1 side and exit the other side only to see lobsters so thick that it rivals the National Geographic shows about how many bats live in caves. They tell me that they live upside down and sideways inside the deep rocks in the 100's.
    Yeah, I think they are safe. Just don't let the "remove the breakwater movement" going on now actually remove the breakwater to obtain better surf--it will kill a huge lobster population.

    I would hope the billion $ shipping and oil industries protected by the wall would not let it happen, but then again surfers helped stop the 241 Toll Road extension to I-5. Nothing against surfers, just want everyone to have good places to do what they enjoy.
