    We ran my Parker over to Catalina to hoop lobster...Got 13 of our 14 bug limits...noted squid all around our boat and some white sea bass on the fish finder...had my big game speargun but, water was peasoup green...no poles, so next trip is to spear or rod and reel a sea bass, followed by pole fishing up our rockcod limits...and, if time permits, a few more lobster....With the price of fuel, a good plan is to always have several options available, based on the conditions.....This is when combo trips rule!

    Hoop nets are for when the water is peasoup green...besides, I don't like getting wet...a last day of the season run produced limits of larger size bugs that probably moved into the vacant homes of their ill-fated brothers....now, it is time to get out my long gun and hope my wetsuit still fits...
