Breaking news just said there was a 5.3 earthquake at the Channel Islands. Not sure how that affects the boaters out there, but hoping everyone is safe.
Short term it usually shuts down a bite . By Saturday it should have no effect.Do earthquakes have any short term effects on fish? I'm supposed to fish channel islands out of Oxnard tomorrow on an overnighter. Hope the swells don't get too big
Yeah we've been watching the storm rolling in. Rain is not an issue but the wind or swells could be. Now an earthquake happened so I'm worried about bigger swells that might roll inShort term it usually shuts down a bite . By Saturday it should have no effect.
Weather will be the biggest issue this weekend.
Boat didn't leave dock till about 12:30am because of the reported swells. Hit some fun swells that woke me up while trying to sleep then it settled down pretty well. We caught limits on the rocks early and got back to the docks about 2 hrs earlier than scheduled. wind picked up to prob over 20 knots on the way back in.How was the weather ?
