    Headed out on the ski around 0900, lots of bait, birds and dolphin. Water was greenish. Fished down to LJ and threw my hat in for the YT along with 20-30 other fisherman. Fished inshore back up the coast and ended up with a dozen or so calicos. All went back in the water for the kids to catch some day.

    You covered some water on that little boat. Already 20-30 boats at La Jolla, wow! So much for my secret spot ha ha.

    Yeah I did! My arms feel like I’ve been running a jackhammer all day.

    Casting and trolling worked today. Not a plug though - lucky craft sardine.

    I am very impressed. I would not think of running my ski from Oceanside to La Jolla. May I ask what you wear on a trip like that. A wetsuit?

    I wear a wetsuit and a floppy hat with a chin strap. The ride can get pretty rough between Oceanside and Carlsbad but from Carlsbad to LJ is usually not bad in the mornings. I like the ski to get in the skinny water close to shore and it’s fast and good on gas, not hard to cover a lot of ground. I don’t have a fish finder so bottom fishing’s tough but I’ve had success with everything else inshore. My boat is in the shop and will be for a while so this is the next best thing.

    That is hard core distance on a ski. Did you see much kelp between oside to LJ? It seems most of the beds have not returned. Even LJ is super thin on kelp.

    Not much at all. At most I was 4 miles off shore and I can remember one living piece of kelp that was off carlsbad. Come to think of it I didn’t see any living kelp in LJ either. They say warm water Kills kelp but I wonder if the flooding and dirty water hurt it as well.

    That's some dedicated fishing there! And yup, kelp doesn't do well in warm water.
