Between Dana Point and Monarch, there was more bird life right outside the surf than I've ever seen. They were going after small anchovies, I didn't see a boat within a mile of all this action. The chovies were mixed in with small bits(1/4 to 1 inch) red bottom type kelp. There are going to be some very plugged fish growing in the next weeks. Water was about 59 to 60 degrees.
