    Launched outta MDR at 6:30am to the Kelp line up north in Malibu. Birds and Dolphins along with a TON of bait in the water. Water temps in the Bu where 57/58*. Made 5 moves up the line from Topanga to Pepperdine for 4 crappy Mackerel. Zero Calico home. We fished squid strip slider rigs, plastics, coltsnipers and smaller surface irons. Nada!

    Malibu sucked so we headed south to Rocky Point (the slide) in 120’ of water. Water temps 59* just off the Canyon. Picked up a limit of reds and Caucasian fish. Also picked up a few barberpoles, bluebass and Johnny bass. Still zero Calico to be found. Winds came up and we took a solid beating back to the trailer by 1:30pm

    Hope that helps. We took no photos at all.

    Water up north was pretty clean. You could easily make out the massive schools of deans at 10’

    Water color at Rocky Peak was a tad merkier.
