    Looks like Everingham's only has anchovy for bait right now.
    Anyone know of a recent good spot for making mackerel outside SD bay?

    Start metering and watching for bird activity as soon as you past ballast point...sooner if there is good sign....have some cans of cat food in the seafood variety ready and troll your sabiki if you see any thing resembling bait fish at about 3-4 knots,,,,if you get bit immediately start flicking fingers full of cat food and slow the boat down.....have two rods with sakbikis and keep one with a mack on it in the water till the next one gets bit.

    if they don't come up in a group don't sit there go find some more

    No current info from me which is what I think you are looking for, but I'll add to the others guys comments, which you are probably aware of all of them........ anyways, here goes....

    Chrome sinker Ron, and mix your catfood with oatmeal.

    Watch the meter close as soon as you pass the point, and then watch for signs.... terns, puddling bait,pelicans

    I don't make bait out of San Diego Bay all that often, but the edge of the Kelp line is always a good place to find macs.

    I've been making mackerel for bait in San Diego Harbor regularly for the last 2 months, the last time was Friday night. It is WFO on perfect bait sized mackerel literally right next to the bait receiver at the new location. Get your chovies at the receiver if you want any, untie, and drift with the Sabiki's out. Expect 75 pieces in about 10 minutes, it's really that easy for the last 2 months. Good luck!

    It sucks that we can't get good bait and they are just dying in Marina del Rey
