    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.

    Awesome to you and Makerel Man. He always seems to catch the big ones. Killer long trip. Great effort as always Josh and thanks for the report and the balloon! #themylarroundup #balloonsblow

    I always get a laugh out of "Mackerel Man". He is the super-hero that changes minnows into monsters!

    Another nice day out there Josh. You'll bump into those yellows next time out. Great catch.

    I hooked a Sea lion fishing WSB at night and yanked his ass right up to the boat. Very satisfying.

    Sounds like a GREAT day on the water, catching fish and getting "head". Thanks for the report!
