Ah bummer man, I am very familiar with the feeling! The last few trips out we've been having lots of success with Yakima Big Al's flashers (yellow and UV) with a Glow Krippled Anchovy, Glow FBR, and UV FBR with tray anchovies dyed blue. 20' set backs work good for us. Leaders on the FBRs are modified with 36-48" leaders of 30# fluorocarbon and barbless octopus Gamakatsu 4/0 (no plastic tube). We just embed the hook halfway down the anchovy and have it stick up through the back. Krippled anchovies we just run stock. Lucky spot/ depths for us have been up at Pacifica (stay away from jellyfish) and between 20 and 35 ft. The last 3 good sized fish we got came in the 20' range. My dad and I went out of HMB yesterday and run up to Pacifica. Got this 21 pounder between Pacifica Pier and Linda Mar in 60' of water. Struck on the downrigger that was 25' down running UV FBR. However, as Shaun said, fish change pretty often. Don't hesitate to switch it up and try different things. Change set ups, depths, trolling speeds, direction...just keep mixing until you find what they like. Yesterday it seemed to be a Yellow Yakima flasher with a Glow FBR trolled about 2-2.5 mph. That set up got the most hits/ action by far (friend caught 1 keeper, 2 shorts, and lost 4 on that set up). Good luck to you. I hope you guys get on the fish soon since I know how frustrating and disheartening it can be. But there is a lot of info on this thread and a lot of really cool guys who are willing to provide info if you ask. Let us know if you have any other questions or need help. Go get em and share pics when you do!
