smacked 3 keepers this morning at Catalina. Same beach. 10’ of water. 5 trips consecutive in the last 7 weeks. 2 keepers per trip- minimum. Same Beach, same spot. most have been males 23-27”. today’s i didn’t measure or weigh but i’m sure she was all of 18-20lbs. and it was a she.
last couple trips, water temp 58ish.
today 57.1 was the warmest. not a big difference but since i had this in my notes.
All fish caught on Fresh Dead.
last night my boy, his buddy and I, nailed 17 legal lobster before grabbing a can in avalon and clamping on the boat.
home by 2pm today.
Windy now but should be firing by mid week. Go get em!

great catch!

Were you bouncing ball or reverse dropper loop drifting. really trying to figure out a productive rig up here @ channel islands. Could use some advice

i have been fishing flatline: 1/4-1/2 ounce slider with 4/0-8/0 hooks. never circle for hali’s. and I’ve been fortunate to fish live swuid, fresh dead or frozen squid only, with this same method. one trip we took a half scoop of sardines and i stuck to the frozen and bother the dines and frozen got bit. so who knows. but my catch has been full of squid showing saiid on their bellies primarily.
I’ve been anchoring and throwing to the beach. not much drifting.
sorry, i ramble.

    Love those back side beaches for the halibut! Gotta watch the waves if you are on a west facing beach! Congrats on the nice flatties!
