Left the MCRD boat ramp at 7:15am or so, got to the Islands around 8:15am and started trolling some X-raps. Saw that some of the boats going there were getting yellowtail, hit or miss, so I figured I'd give it a shot this early... Water temp was barely 60 degrees, so I wasn't too optimistic, and with good cause. Radio chatter indicated nobody else was having any luck, either. Around noon, I gave it up and decided to switch to the bottom and pulled up a bunch of good sized whitefish and sculpin off the southeast end of the north island. Didn't get what I hoped for, but didn't come home smellin' like skunk.
