    Got to launch ramp at 4 am met up with a couple of my buddys launched the boat at bait receiver at 445 am picked up some ok sardines at best,left bait barge at 5 am weather was awesome the entire way to the east end.arrived just some time later slid inside into one of many little beach spots along the east end and with end 5 minutes im on with the rt kind after about a 2 minute battle up comes mr sea bass,first bait first fish to come aboard,then shortly after released to fight another day.barely legal at best we continue to drift inside for just a few more bait scrapes so off we went headed towards the fleet,but before we got there there were eruptions the entire way.once we arrived to are next spot yellows were popping up everywhere i had my light line set up out and got bit on the long soak but popped it off after a solid 3 minute battle,we picked off 3 or so barries at that spot.decided to head back towards east end.we should have put the wood to these but are bait was shitty

    I always get the feeling that Catalina fish don't like it when there are too many boats in an area. The bite always seem to turn on right after the weekends or before it.

    Though down south, they seem to turn on no matter how many boats are in an area, makes you wonder.

    Why do you need bait to catch fish? You just need the bait for chum...

    Where’s you launch? That’ll help me figure out the bait source. Great report!

    Bring some sabikis, a couple cans of generic brand tuna cat food and catch your own bait. The big yellows at the island dig big Spanish mackies, smelt and greenbacks. Lures are fun and can be effective, but the home guards prefer the live stuff in my experience.

    And oh yeah, fish during the week if possible! :D

    We fished it on Friday for a "no go". Our buddy hooked something with a good fight but it spit the hook. He thought it felt like a barrier. No bites after that.

    We have check it out a number of times in the past couple week/months. Lots of bait and no schools yet.

    The last 3 or 4 years they were there, but don’t forget about the 4 or 5 years prior to that, they never showed. El Niño is over, they are NOT always there.
