Dude seriously spend some time looking at your charts. This is not rocket science here. What type of structure do reds prefer? The depth contours just expanded so there's all kinds of new territory out there with bigger fish on them. Use your imagination.

What are the chances there are spots with consistently big reds on them near Anacapa 15 miles from two harbors? Probably near zero. Is that to say you can't get a couple decent fish? No, I'm sure you can but you need to look at the structure. Nobody is gonna give you numbers.

You want big reds? Go deep. The harder a spot is to get to, the larger the reds will be.

Thanks I appreciate it. Nice catches. Like I said, I’m new to being the one finding the spots. So I’m just trying to learn here. Not expecting someone to give coordinates.

    I hit the Gap, 16.5 miles out of Channel Islands Harbor, last Thursday, 4/1, and it was all you want type of fishing for Chuckles, Starrys, and Whitefish. Current rips there though so you need a lot of lead.

    Awesome! The young one is making great memories I’m sure!
    I’ll probably go to the gap, and also scope out some places on the backside of Anacapa. I’ve been around Anacapa on the Gentleman with good luck, wish I marked where we were.
