    The good ship I was on spent most of the day dragging "crazy trains" (sterling spreaders, 9" squid glow color). Fish bit for us only from 5 pm on. Could see SBI to the n/w while we trolled thru 40-150 lb fish. If you can see the gap between the "dirt clod" and it's little chunk to the n/w of you, fish should be near.

    45 & 95 lb fish caught on 80 flourocarbon 5:30 to 7 pm. One bigger lost.

    Btw, I don't like OZZY either, but he's got...

    ... bank!

    Those BFT are not biting easily for anyone. They look to be on or in pyrosomes. Mark the schools, and work them all day, PM high slack and 2 hours after has been good to us.

    No man, we didn't say where we went! :p Much farther and this report would have to go on the Central Cal board which I believe for this purpose begins around the midpoint of Anacapa haha. Way to get 'em!
