Fun day on the water, catching fish! Winds were stronger than forecast, especially the morning winds east of the islands. Fairly strong offshore winds mixing it up. Switched to Northerly as forecast but never really laid down as much as I would have hoped.

Put 60 miles in today, and ended up with a nice menagerie:
- 6 YT (all 7.5-8.5#, not “8-12”)
- 1 Ling
- 1 4.8# Vermillion (my PB)
- 1 Bonito
- 2 whitefish
- 1 sand dab
- 2 Mackerel (duh, it’s the Mackerel Magnet)

All cleaned, scaled, deboned, skinned and sealed (can’t get enough of my Vacmaster!)

What worked today:
- heavy iron. Larger scrambled egg
- yo-yo
- metering for structure and fish
- 5# of rock salt in my slurry. Froze the fish solid within an hour.

What didnt work
- fin bait
- surface Irons
- trolling
- bird signals with no gamefish

Stopped by the Quad 300hp harbor patrol/Sheriff/Border Patrol boat on the way back. Just checking citizenships. Nice guys.
