Counts were low, red tide, so not too high of expectations, I caught 2 of the 5 short calico landed. Local guy fishing shrimp got a short sheepshead and that was it. No keepers on the trip and the jackpot money was refunded since no one won. First time I ever seen that. Anchovies fished on the bottom caught 4 bass and the other was on squid. Taking my son with me for free tomorrow afternoon so hopefully we do better than today...

    I never see any great reports from 1/2 trips out of Dana Point. I don't know why as they have great kelp beds with much smaller boat pressure than the landings to the west.

    You must not have been around the area lately. Not much kelp and lots of small boats. Hopefully the kelp comes back with this cold water we're having.
