Thursday Headed out to 9 mile looking to get lucky on a paddy found 3 decent ones, 2 had birds and 1 had hundreds of birds crashing but no one home. Head to La Jolla for a epic day. Birds crashing with tons of fish jumping out size of a football field we caught countless barracuda ,bonita, Bass, and Macs. Also caught a WSB and a yellowtail. Had a extremely nice fish threw a huge Mac out that I had caught on sardine I’m thinking it was a biggg homeguard yellow or a big WSB this thing smoked me on 30lb it peeled off 1/3 of my spool very quickly and dragged me in kelp were I tried for quite a while to get him out he was still pulling drag out threw the kelp eventually broke the hook off. Never had a fish pull so hard. It’s on fire out there guys get them

Sounds like fun
I would suggest not using 30 pound test while fishing a Big Mac near the kelp
Personally I would not want to use anything less than 40 pound
Anyway thanks for the fishing report and better luck next time

Great report! Sounds like one of those days we all look forward to for all those times when it's tough. 20/20 hindsight maybe fish the leader right to spectra to have a chance at the big ones near kelp.
