After 5 weeks off the water it felt awsome to be back. I got to shelter just after 7 this morning and waited on the street parking for the harbor patrol to allow us in. Around 745 we were allowed in and were limited to 5 people launching at once. It was heavily patrolled and ids were being checked just fyi.

I grabbed a decent half scoop of bait and was at north island by 845. Seas were calm and water as bad of a red tide as I've ever seen.

Looked around most of the day for yellows but came up empty handed. There were a few caught but not by me. Water temps ranged from 64 to 68 and and color was terrible most everywhere but there was a few areas were it was ok. Finished the day at my ling hole and picked up a couple rockfish as well.

Back on the ramp around 3 and waited for my turn to pull the boat out as they were only allowing 4 vehicles to be on the ramp at once in the afternoon. Good luck if you go this weekend and stay safe!

Yeah, that a boy Cody! Same Ling area you caught that beast last year? How'd the bait do with that shitty water quality? Thanks for the informative report as always. Thinking of heading to the Islands Friday.

Hey was out there today late at 12ish. Took a while for us to find them. South part of north island but on weather side. Saw you guys when we got out and heard you talking, kind of bouncy on weather side. Went to middle grounds for nada then came back got a flurry where h2o streaked clean on rapalas and 1 on bait. A seal took one of my bigger ones, guys coming in from offshore saw the seal eating and playing with it. They went all the way to San Salvador Knoll for not a whole lot. Our bite time was 230 to 430. Then couldnt get them to go. No love on yoyo iron. My buddy who has commercial license been hammering them for 2 weeks straight. Glad we got out on the big pond finally. You will hammer them next time. Shoot would love a lingcod on bait or iron...Everyone was in good spirits out there.
