Made the run on a friend’s private boat from San Pedro to the Cortes Bank for a few days of awesome weather and fun fishing. Water conditions were great with good clarity and about 67deg temps. Some smoke from the fires filtered the sun even way out at Cortes.
Our sardine bait from Nachos didnt last the 3 days and rolled by day 2. We also ran out of all the mackerel we caught at the harbor.
We made mini macs and squid at night out on the Bank for a couple hours before going to sleep on night 2 so we could fish day 3.
Best luck for us was slow troll with the Macks. Bites both on top and down lower around 60’ on the slow troll. 40# line and small hooks were the ticket.
Fresh Poke for the crew at work in mid November is much appreciated.
