Hit LJ for the opener. Showed up to an almost empty parking lot. On the water by 630 beautiful morning. Real high tide. Got a hefty 1/2 scoop of medium to small deans mixed with small chovies. Made few medium macs out front, and away we went. Fish bit decent in the morning. Until the tide died and the current disappeared.. I could easily fish 250' with a 3.5 oz flatfall with a dean on a loop above it. No current Drifted areas from 270' - 90' throughout the day. Starries chucks olives blue rock fish and 2 lings just over legal one of the lings got belly hooked by a flat fall, I had a small starrie on the hook above the jig, while dealing with that the ling flipped and by by flat fall. I hate losing jigs. I hear the am 1/2 day did well on the reds, but I didn't see a single one all day. At one point I started getting excited when I seen what ended up being Big balls of 12+" macs chasing something making a ruckus. But it was only macs. All in all good day with a good buddy catching a few fish. Not the quality that I had in mind. But fish none the less. Weather was beautiful most of the day around 1 or so it got a bit breezy but not bad.
