Trailered our 28’ Farallon W/A down to Channel Island Harbor and spent three days/nights at the Islands. Great weather and sightseeing but fishing was very slow. Picked up two scoops of live bait before heading out. Was suppose to be a sardine and anchovy mix. We went through all the bait for a grand total of 2 sardines. Spent a lot of time trolling X-Raps on the south side of Anacap and Santa Cruz Islands for nada. Not even a bonito. Ran over to Santa Rosa and drifted for halibut at Becher’s Bay and Santa Rosa shoal for a few shorts, Rockies, etc. Great trip but disappointing fishing. Maybe those more experienced at fishing the islands can point us in the right direction for our next trip.
