Gave Dana Point a good solid try. Got nice scoop of mixed chovy and smaller deans. Ran down to the barn... current was downhill so moved up to YT kelp. Anchored up and chummed and waited just outside kelp. Scratch bite... probably 5 calico in 1 hour. None legal but close. Pulled up and trolled north to Upper Box. Still downhill current... same program.. probably scratched 5 more short calico. No other catch. Water was greenish, but clear. Certainly not purple/blue anywhere along the coast. Weather was perfect near zero wind. Water temp at 65.

A sporty just outside of me seemed to be able to chum up a decent sand bass bite.

Sure wish I could make Catalina in my wee boat. Until then, hoping that the water clears up.

    be smart, have the right safety equipment, and have a buddy boat. Your boat can make it there. I've taken my 18-footer there.
