So like I said in my post from yesterday, I got tired of bottom fishing near shore, and decided to get out into big boy land today.

Launched around 0900 again and headed straight out west, weather was perfect with a long period 2' swell and negligible winds. The fog bank was a little ominous when I was making my way out of the bay, but it cleared up and visibility was great the whole day.

Stopped on about 8 or 9 solid kelps throughout the day, many of which were holding smaller grade, rat yellows that were not wanting any breakfast (only irons and jigs from me) but it was promising to see fish on kelps this early in the season, in 63 degree water non the less.

Chased bird piles, hit paddies, and trolled rapala x-raps, but at the end of the day struck out. No complaints from me though, everybody on the radio was being super cool, and helping each other out, got to see some whales and get my skiff out there a ways. I hope y'all have better luck than me. Tight lines!

    You're the guy that tried to poach out paddy and got to watch us limit out!

    :)

    Next time, ASK before you roll up on someone's kelp. I would have dialed you in with bait and even chummed the fish up for you while you limited out.

    All you had to do was ask.
