Boat
Grumpy
Launched from Oxnard at about 6 am
Hit the gap first for a slow pick of rockies (a lot of dinks).
Ran up the backside of Santa Cruz and drifted a few spots for nothing.
Turned the corner between Rosa and Cruz. Looked for structure for a while and finally found the right drift. Limits of huge white fish for the 3 of us. Good quality Rockies (mostly chuckleheads) and a legal ling too. All on fresh dead squid. My sardines didn’t even get a sniff.
Mack’s were everywhere. It was hard to get down past them.
Wind was blowing in the morning but laid down on the afternoon. Averaged 25 on the ride back to the harbor. Water temp 57-59.
Most bites came after 11:30ish.
I can’t wait to cook up the Ling! Good shit.
