Took my son to the island to look for his first yellow. Found lots of rats On the front side of West end. 110 feet of water, Live sardines from nacho worked well, also a few on whole dead squid. Caught about 10 all around 5 pounds. Explained to my boy that we don't need to keep the rats, it helps out the population down the line. So he released his first yellow. Kept a few bass, whitefish and opaleye for the grill. Also released some healthy bass that were destroying my plastics.

Nice job on landing an assorted bag for the kid. Did you take your kid on your 17' to Catalina?

Yeah I check the weather and conditions and take my time getting over there. I usually head back before or around noon before the winds pick up
