launched late, dana point, at 10 am still a small line for bait. bait was good and he loaded us with alot of it. headed towards the 279. a couple small kelps in the area, most holding bait, but no life otherwise. made our way to the 277, plans was to work our way up the slide towards cat. never made it........while pulling up to an epic string of paddies, an alarm goes off. quick look at the gauges oil pressure is low. shut it down. we lift the engine cover to see a substantial amount of oil in the bilge. get on the radio and call for a tow. limits for 3 of heartache, despair, and sadness that our day was over. soaked baits and chunked waiting for TOWBOAT, with not even a sniff from anything other than gulls. there was an area at the 277 loaded with kelps and bait. even with the problems still got to hang with my daughter. good luck, hope this helps someone.
