My son and I both had a few days free so headed to Catalina for a few days. As of Wednesday Nacho didn’t have squid but said he would be getting some Thur so we grabbed have scoop of mix dines/anchovies and made our way over in choppy seas.
I had some fresh dead so the plan was to fish for Yellowtails, Seabass, and Halibut.
Well no Yellows or Seabass but we did manage a keeper Halibut and two Soles .
The Chelsea was selling squid at Avalon Thursday and Friday and 3 squid boats were working each night. Gonna give props to the Chelsea asked for a 1/2 scoop he gave me a big pass and a half bucket of fresh dead for $40 thank you sir !! Water was warmer towards the west end at 63-64, thurs evening infront of Avalon temp was 59! Plenty of Calico biting on dines and squid, no bonies which was crazy trolling Mac rapalas in sardine and green Mac. Caught a 30-40 lbs black Seabass drifting for halibut. Did 144 miles from HB to Cat fishing the whole island and back!
Great time as always even though I had a cabin hatch fall and smash me on the right side of my eye !!
Make sure your first aid kits are stocked with alittle of everything for those minor emergencies that can and will arise from time to time...tight lines to all.

Thanks for the report! My dad and I are headed there tomorrow from Dana. It’s our first time going to cat. Hopefully our trip is as cool as yours without the injury. Ouch! Tight lines!!
