Launched from Davies around 630 picked up a half scoop of relatively large deans and headed to the island. Was greated with awesome weather for the crossing. Made it over to the island rite near two harbors got settled down relaxed for a short period and checked gear made a few drops with the colt ,buddy fished a flat fall. We each got a small bone and he got a little Chuck. Decided that we were settled enough and started heading towards Avalon metering around looking for life , stopped on several marks droping various jigs along the way. The night before I had aquired a variety of waypoints from the internet so while metering around I input 20 or so spots. We were a bit past Avalon a few sport boats sitting on the anchor. But Im not much for crowding boats so we continued on towards the quarry and found a area that was loaded with fish and decided to spend some time drifting that area. Dropping jigs and baits to no avail. Eventually Gail force showed up dropped the pick started chumming and hooking yellows. I continued to drift my same line over the ridge from about 150' into 35' and we were eventually rewarded with some yellows. After a bit boat after boat began to show up shortly after a panga decided to anchor up directly in my drift line. Which changed my game a bit it became difficult to keep my distance from Gail and not cut off the panga guys (who some how never ended up getting bit despite fish blowing up rite next to them) I don't really remember the water temp near the island. We stuck it out till around 230 at which point we now had 3 sport boats and 15-20 private boats, with some having little to no respect for the sport boats. The captain was even telling people, do not drift between me and the island. I don't care if you anchor off my bow, just do not go between me and the island. Some people..... We ended the day with 4 yellows on the boat. I got 2 on bait on a new to me Newell 229 with 25 lb fluoro and 1 on the surface plug. My buddy ended with 1 on 25 and lost 1 to a pulled hook because of some submerged kelp. It was a great well needed day of catching. Oh yeah so I figured out that you can sometimes bait and switch a dog from taking your yellow , one of my yellows on bait got spotted quickly by a big knot head. I had a small bucket of dead baits and told my buddy throw like 10 of them that actually kept him destracted for a bit while I got the fish up to color. Dog started to come towards the fish again threw a few more dead baits and it turned his attention again. I wasn't sure it would work, but it did this time , thankfully. Because it would have been game over on 25. The tide home was bumpy and a bit wet. But I did find water up to 68 mid channel.
