Took my beautiful wife over for a couple days by ourselves. She is not a serious fisherperson, but she indulges me. My goal was for her to catch her first YT. On Friday we slow trolled sardines from Avalon to Long Point and she hooked one good fighter on 20# line. Almost wore her out, but she did it! Kept at it and completed the day with a couple more nice fish, plus a variety of other smaller fish. Bonito gave her a fight. She was happy to land this nice barracuda after getting bit off a couple times. Picked up a mooring at Avalon, went for a swim and had dinner ashore. Saturday our remaining sardines were looking beat up, so we snagged some fresh minimacs and a few smelt, and tried again, but too much wind. Anchored for a while near Whites Landing and managed to chum up a steady bite of smallish calicos and one nice sheepshead. Most bit on squid chunks. Fun to catch on light line. Only real excitement was a bat ray and a couple shovel nose sharks that we thought for a minute might be something better. Called it a day and headed back to San Pedro around 1:00. I caught more fish, but the wife caught the biggest. That's ok, she's still MY best catch. As we were leaving the Cabrillo Dry Storage we noticed that one side of the road was blocked off so Spacex could pick up their most recent Falcon 9 rocket from the barge it had landed on the other day.
