Got out on Thursday morning with My brother Alex.
We headed out to Edith on nice seas.
Water was a pretty blue and 67 degrees.
Tossed some plastics at the platform for zero bites.
Headed off away from platform. Trolled for a little and then shut off engine and dropped down in 150 ft.
Caught some small Whitefish and Starry. Alex pulled up a Treefish on cut bait and I got a Sculpin on a headlead (Leadhead):rofl::rofl: Edit post : Thanks Steve!,, purchased from John a Fellow BDer.
Moved over to Sandbass junction area for some more drifting.
Zero. Headed by Esther and drifted for a Sandie. Went in the harbor and a fellow boater was dumping his bait. I waved and he gave us 30 pieces.
Dropped the anchor and fished by PCH. Dropped a spinning outfit in the water which Alex hooked the line and retrieved from the dink.
Got a big Needlefish to chew on a sardine by the boat but didn't eat the hook. Pretty cool and big. I thought is was a barrie at first.
A Spottie ate a sardine. Shore fisherman said he had caught over 20 big Spotties under the bridge at lowtide.
He pulled in a nice one on chunk sardine piece of bait.
Truck battery drained while I was listening to Tim Conway Jr. on the radio while I was prepping to head home.
Cool cat gave me a jump and off I went.
Great day.
:-)

A day on the water is always a good day. It's not just about tuna!

Although this report properly belongs on the Inshore Forum, thanks for posting.
