I know this is the wrong section, but more will look here than ride sharing/planning. I’m headed out tomorrow to scout the 9 and possibly La Jolla. Any word on recent activity in this area this past week? Weather and water temps might have got the best of it, but wind and swells look decent tomorrow. Don’t want to go further then the 9 mile. I’ll be on 72 from 6a-sundown.

Pics above.
Bait was awesome. Seas were pleasant. Trip log 75 miles. Hit south to north nine. Lots of life (birds, porpoise, bait), but only two small paddies empty. Went to La Jolla, first drop in 80’ and got a halibut. Play around for an hour or so and decided to head into Zuniga for a luck at another halibut. On way to the jetty we saw birds working off crystal pier and a few boats. Lots of bait balls with yellows breezing through.

Awesome, nice yellow hophead, I was in the same place From 1130-330 at the 9 and it looked like all the paddy’s have broken up. I did see a yf go clear out of the water. Tons of birds. I also went in and saw all the birds nailing the bait balls. Drifted the dines in 150’ to 80’. Also trolled the rapalas there until 330. No luck this time but saw all the boats trying hard. The pelicans went mad on those bait balls. New seaforth was out there with us. Rain was on and off and then really started at 315.
