    My neighbor Mike and his son took my brother and I out to fish Catalina on his boat yesterday. Got on the water around 3pm and fished till 10pm. Got some nice calico, but nothing else.

    We decided to head east to spend the night, and fish in the morning. We ended up staying around China Point. We woke up somewhere around 3:30 am and started fishing live squid on a 7/0 hook on a dropper with around 8ounces of lead. Within in an hour, we already landed 2 nice white sea bass. By 6am we landed a total of 6 white sea bass! All in the 25-30 pound range. It was really fun fighting these guys. Then to top it all off, at 6:15 we landed a nice 32 pound yellow tail.

    This was definitely one of the best trips I have ever taken. We all caught some quality fish, and I couldn't believe that we got so many sea bass.

    Big thanks to Mike for making this all possible.

    They look like 25-30 lbers to me, you're probably just used to the guys on this board grossly overestimating the weight of the seabasss they catch...

    Good job on catching some fish!

    Cam, Good report.

    Way to post quick for the pre weekend info.
    You young men did yourselves proud.
    We were using 7/0 hooks, to be clear.

    We will hit them again.

    Cam, How does your family like WSB on the BBQ?
    The Key is not to cook it to much.
    3 Min. on one side, 2Min. on the other.
    The fish will continue to cook to perfection while you set the table.

    Have a great week.
