    Loved fishing King Harbor for bonito.

    Caught my first yellowtail there, too. Had to stop by the fish market to figure out what it was!

    I remember it well. I was on the receiver just about the time when Joe Hall was selling the bait CO. to Jim Myers. I stayed about three years then went to the hoist and boat rentals. The Starcraft skiff you guys are in was built like a tank, if i remember there were two or three at the hoist. Fun times for sure back then.:hali_olutta:

    We built our own bait sled to save the sled rental fee and fished King Harbor skiffs in the 70s. Big bonito and the occasional yellow on light tackle. Will. never forget those days. Hooked me for life.

    Thanks for posting brings back lots of great memories. In 1975 I was a junior in high school I had a 1963 GMC truck with a camper. Spent many weekends camped out in the parking lot. We would buy white feather Crappie jigs and 8# test at White Front for 99 cents and be all set for the weekend. I would get off school on Friday go home and pack the truck, tell mom and dad “I’ll be home for dinner on Sunday”.

    Yeah I used to fish the bubble in King harbor. Mostly bonito on a feather/bobber rig. What a blast!

    Wow, great memories. I used to fish down there with fly and bubble in the late 70 when I was about 12. Also used to go out on the barge overnight shark fishing. Sell my fish and would go half day on the City of Redondo. Thanks for the video!

    I was in my early teens back in the 70's I would take the bus from south central LA and spend the night on the short pier. I would hang out on the horseshoe pier until 10 then go to the small pier where the cops wouldn't bother us for curfew. I remember watching the yellow tail swimming in circles around the bubble not knowing what they were. How many of you guys threw grappling hooks into the bubble trying to snag the fish? There was a building , I believe a restaurant, that backed up to the rocks. They would get a lot of their windows broken out from the people snagging the fish. I also used to spend the night on the big orange wooden barge shark fishing and catching nothing but big blues. There use to be three barges and I believe the barge I fished from which was anchored over one of the barges that sank was named California. Lots of good memories but could not imagine ever letting my kid do what I did but considering how much of a piece of shit hyperactive kid I was I don't blame my parents for not chaining me down to preventing me from going. Is the bubble still there? Somewhere I read that the SCE plant was going to be decommissioned.
