Headed out this morning unsure of what we’d find after a week of wind mix-mastering the water column. Worked the Box Canyon area hard from 7 to 40 fathoms. Water temp was a turbid 57.5 close to shore, clear green 64+ outside. Lots of 6” macks shallow, but couldn’t find any YT on the chase. Went deep and bagged a couple of keeper reds and the wife dredged up the biggest starry rockfish I’ve ever seen. Tacos for lunch tomorrow. Stay thirsty, my friends...

My apologies- I neglected to mention two things:
1) The stomachs of the reds were empty. The big starry had a couple of almost completely digested red crabs, that was it.
And...(drum roll please)...
2) DFG was very active checking licenses and fish. Were were “pulled over” NW of Oceanside Harbor. Don’t take this comment as negative toward them. I appreciate what they do protecting OUR fishery. Just a heads up for those that may need to get squared away...
