I like the tajigas area for a mix of rocky sandy areas, or gaviota for a sandy beach. Hard to go wrong up there almost, fish die of old age ,very few people fish there. If you're up for a little more drive jalama can be pretty good.

Gaviota and Jalama both had lots of lettuce. Not fish able with the LC. Fished Goleta and had a good morning.

Nice beach haul!
I used to fish there frequently between 1967 and until the l big storm damaged the pier several years ago. Have not fished there since then. I will be there around the 18th of Sept and I will give it a try again then.
