Quick report: left Long Beach 5:30am, stopped at Nachos and ended up sardines because they are out of live squid. Got to Empire at 7:00, caught 1 large bat ray, and 1 calico bass. Left and went to yellowtail point. Fished there for 45 min with no luck. Headed to bird rock and fished there for hour. Caught a mix of fish, calico, sheep head, perch, but, only on frozen squid. After that went to east end of island until 1:30 pm. Caught calico, sheepshead, and perch. All on frozen squid. Fish wouldn’t bite on plastics or live sardines for us. Probably 25 fish in total for the day. It was fun but, won’t be going back until the island the fish counts go up. All fish released today. Weather was great both ways. Good luck out there!

    Try slow trolling those live sardines next time. Good way to find fish...
