I had been checking the weather for two weeks. Last week we got blown out and I had to settle for a Sunday solo bug run with sketchy tides in SMB. They only crawled on the incoming tide for me but I took home dinner. This weekend Mikey had to work the weather was looking better so I was left to my own devices. The target species is rock fish. We can fish 600ft and I want to go and explore some new waters. It was a last day decision and I had no takers. I was a bit lazy, my club was doing a surf trip up north, I thought of going back to Prado where I got skunked last time but I would have to really get up early to make that work. So rock fish it is. Being lazy I was up at 6 and lunched at 8AM from Davies. There were lots of trailers in the lot and only one other late comer. He was not looking too good, he had launched his rig with the strap attached! My weather window was not great on Sat. I ran out at 18knts, it was a lot nicer than the last Sunday run, I could only run at 14knts then . I started fishing in 420 ft near some other boats. There were some big rollers out there but the wind was not bad. Two small rockies, one was returned. I did a few drifts in that area. I reduced my weight to 1.5lbs. It's not so much fun when the weight is over 2lbs. I keep moving out into deeper water. I read last weeks report on BD. I ended up moving out to 550ft and hit a spot where you dropped right into the fishes mouth! It comes up doubles. I do a short drift and repeat doubles, then a couple singles. I landed a 19" butt when a boat pushed me outsides of my drift. The wind was coming up at 12:00 and I was sending them back. I had to leave because all I was catching were reds! I moved to spot in 250ft, but the wind had me drifting at 2knts. I headed in with five nice reds, a chilly pepper, a salmon grouper, and an unknown rocky. Who is that guy on the end with dark sides? It's nice to catch Ventura class reds in your back yard boyz, welcome to Southern Ventura can't wait for the white sea bass to show at the outer rigs in about a month. So I take it southern jurassic park is somewhere outside the 150? Someone send me some numbers please. See ya on the water Boyz.
