    Fished BOLA last weekend and agree with road conditions -especially terrible before the turnoff to LA Bay. We suffered a flat, saw another car with a flat, and when we left another car with a flat. Make sure you have a good spare.
    Earlier posts described the conditions and fishing areas. We too made bait very easily at the ramp and first day joined the "fleet" for wide open YT south end of Isla Guarda. Limits/close to limits for all in 15-25lb class. Day two we asked our fantastic skippers Joel and Joel Jr Prieto ( [email protected], [email protected]) to find us some cabrilla/grouper. Off we went (bait easy again) up about a 1 1/2 hour ride up north. Well worth it as we caught nice Pargo, WSB, Cabrilla and grouper. Day 3 was the annual UCSB Beachwhackers Delts vs K-sigs fishing derby and since we had enough vacuum sealed YT to start a fish market YT was determined to be worth only 1 point while all other edibles worth 5. Fished some reefs and high spots south. Caught a bunch more nice fish which included a 36# YT (yep only worth 1 point) . Can't say enough for Joel and Joel Jr Prieto on their fishing expertise and customer service. Top captains! Stayed at Larry and Raquels - Ruth (caretaker fabuloso) made sure we had everything we needed. We take very good care of our fish so it's nice to have a large freezer available as Ruth does for our vacuum sealed fillets!

    Ice, beer, gas, water all readily available in town
    Bring 8oz-16oz torpedos
    Heavy line - fish were not line shy
    One 16# cabrilla pulled out of about 4' water on Chark Bait's Toro Tamer Stick Bait[
    YT caught at every area we fished. Jigs worked but bait seemed to be the easiest.

    Forgot to mention - some egg sinkers in various sizes as sometimes the YT were just below the surface....

    Nice work and fantastic giving the yellows a breather. Glad to hear Ruth is keeping all running well at Raquel and Larry's place. Still strange that they are gone.
