Wait until the Santa Ana's start blowing. The bite goes wide open in the Catalina channel no thanks to Disney and Knotts.. One recent trip back from Catalina last year after a blow, we had to stop picking them up or we would have never made it home. We stopped at 45 individual balloons. It is unreal that it is still legal to sell them. This is a great way to make it sporty to help clean up the local ocean. Thanks to everyone for doing this.
