Started @ 8:00 up near Empire. No current, not much bait, no birds, a few seals around and a handful of boats scattered about. Had 7" mackerel and fresh sabiki made deans. a few calico and barracuda bites and that was all.

Headed East @ 11:00 for more of the same. Nice day on the water, but looks like the fish have moved.

We were in Empire yesterday,watched a couple YT and cudas landed.We had great bass fishing with some nice legal fish.I just pulled the plug about 11:30 as the seals were eating EVERY bass we released including a sheep head.We were in there the day before for a couple YT on fin bait,yesterday we had some squid from the Carnage which made the diff on the bass bite.Tom

Fishing from a few days before the full moon to a few days after is usually good. A few days past tense not so good .

Fish that have moved can be found versus fished that have moved-on are likely at another island and/or inshore and that will take more effort to locate them. Sounds like you made he most of your day, thank you for the details.

Sport king and Patriot did find the fish but from what I heard the fish they found are a lot smaller than the previous quality being caught. Mentioned 5 to 6 pounds instead of 10 to 15.
