Headed out of Dana Point Saturday morning with three friends around 7am. Picked up a quick scoop of some GREAT looking 6-8 inch sardines and some macks mixed in. Got outside the harbor into some really brown, churned up water from the last weeks weather. We all were a little skeptical at our chances at that point so we headed south looking for a break in the toilet water. Passed the SC pier and the water turned a real crystal clear deep blue, much to the delight of all on board! Game time! Made our first drop in about 140’ of water, marked great spots of bait near the bottom and started our first drift. 15 minutes in we had our first bite and brought up a nice legal halibut! Rinsed, repeated a few times and moved a little close into 120’ of water. Had a few more legals on board within the next two hours, one per person. Headed back around 12:30 as one of our engines wouldn’t start up due to some lingering electrical issues. Nothing an electrician can’t handle (not my boat, thank god) so we motored slow back to the harbor with a few cold ones to top off the day! Great day with some friends, got a buzz, got some meat and made it home before the wife got pissed. Can’t beat it!
