    Water looked pretty friggging nasty yesterday afternoon all the way south from Seal Beach to Newport. Looked like the O.C. sewer treatment plant was unloading some excess. Kind of a horse crap brown tint, if the sandies are feeding in that colored water I'd think twice about keeping any of them. :(

    Just got in from a trip to P.V and there's pretty good calico fishing just around the corner from Rocky Point. Fished big diens and mini macks on #30 in tight to the kelp from about 7 to 11:30 and got 15 or so bass from 2 to 6.5#'s and 3 short WSB(released) from 18 to 24. You can see the cali's boiling on the surface in the early am. Also, saw alot of the Pedro party boats(at least 4) running up toward MDR ??? Anyway good luck.

    Went out to the flats yesterday (Fri 8/13) for a few hours. Slow pick on the sandies, nice meter marks at times, but they definitely weren't on the chew. Sports boats would be anchoring for about 15 minutes at a shot before trying to find the school again.

    I was solo and using only plastics for 10 or so upto 4 lbs. Kept three for dinner.

    We hit em up yesterday. The sand bass are spotty at best but Point Fermin was holding one 15lb halibut for Aj. The flats were full of sporties but they didn't seem to be wide open.

    The fish are there, just have lockjaw. You meter a metric ton of sand bass and only manage to catch a handfull. And who said turd rollers were stupid?..lol..Its getting good up the line, like Unreel said, but takes a bit more talent to fish the bush and put up decent numbers. Def. not for the kids. MDR has had a really good pick at the bass. But that might have been last weeks news. Hope that helps.

    Holla
