Did a big loop down to Rockpile, SKR, S Island, N Island. Worked the area pretty good. Lots of bait (sardines) and decent meter marks but no yellows. Settled for another full load of red, coppers, whites, a ling, sculpin and another sanddab. Released a small sheepshead, many 4 inch rockfish and calico, blue rockfish and others. One Mylar balloon. Best fight of the day was a sea lion that took a whitefish for a long deep run and wouldn’t let go until all that was left was the head. Water 58.5, minor chop, good overall conditions. Sardines from Mission Bay were fat 5-7”. No fish caught on live bait. All fresh dead squid. Mackerel Man was stoked with a personal best honeycomb rockfish.
