    Left Davies at 9pm Thursday night.
    Loaded up some micro candy from Nacho and made like a tree, and split.
    Very bumpy. Got to the west end at 12:30, dropped the pick and tossed out the dropper loops. Froze my balls off for the next few hours on anchor watch and only got to hear the clicker once.
    Unbuttoned the big calico and proceeded to freeze my balls off. (Forgot my jacket. Only had a hoodie)
    My relief came and I sacked out till gray light. At gray light starting tossing the egg slider for a couple of goats and all you can eat calico- but not what I was hunting.
    Went around the bend at 8:00 or so and worked the kelp line for nothing- droppers out, egg slider, and hook up baits. Wasn’t metering anything either.
    I didn’t go too far on the backside- just stayed close to the big rock.
    Ended at the humps for a few drifts to get some taco meat. Had a mistery fish pull me into the rocks and break me off. Maybe a big ling. Anyways. Got a mixed bag and boned out.
    Pointed east at 10:00. Cruised at 26 on the way back but the wind was up and it was lumpy.
    The one guy I seen at the ramp said he couldn’t cross early in the morning cause of the wind so he stayed in the harbor.
    Hope this helps. Go get’m.

    None. But I didn’t go far on the back side either.

    Thanks for the report.

    That one pic looks like the boiler outside of Johnson's rock. That thing is right in the danger zone. Everyone should have that beast marked on their GPS. Lots of boats have met their end at that spot.

    Or did you fool us a get a pic from inside Indian Rock?

    Johnson rock. Fished the area during the day at hi and low tide many times. So I am familiar with the rocks there. If not, setting up there at night would’ve been sketchy to say the least.
    Excellent point about putting in GPS. I haven’t thought of that.

    Johnson's boiler is on the front side, near the West End. Here are the numbers I have. It's not exactly on the spot, as I did not want to get too close, but it is close enough!. Keep your eyes peeled in the area, as the rock sometimes covers up at high tide.

    N 33.28.653
    W 118.35.363

    Thank you. I'll be extra careful in that area. Safety first. Cheers!

    Just outside of the bigger rock that you’ll see is another one that most of the time you can’t see at high tide.
    If you make an invisible line between the beach and the rock, the area to the east is very rocky, but holds fish. The area to the west is clear. A lot of kelp there too.
    Good luck
