    Fished the area from izors to horseshoe. today and could not by a bite more than a perch. Very slopy water to start with, swells from all directions, 5 mph wind, 64\65 degree water, found decent meter marks but no Takers. used Sardine, cut squid, iron. i could barelt find a bird. was off water by 1130am.. Frustration had set in. even tried for halibut in the harbor did catch a lizard fish. i have had a rough few weeks out there and am ready to pull my hair out. usual spots just arent working and new spots are the same.......

    Kep your Rod bent!

    Be patient and keep at it. Fishing is tough sometimes, it will get better.

    Sorry to hear about the tough time out. Was at Newport Artificial reef today and it was very slow. Headed to the pipe and got into a wide open bite that lasted for hours. Sardine was definitely the ticket but am sure plastics would have worked well too. Trust your fishfinder and chum the marks. If no action in 10 mins or so, move on. In summer you should be getting boils on chummed sardines pretty quickly if there are any fish on the surface nearby.

    I felt the same way the last few months! Found some near shore temp at 66 degrees F and finally got on to some calico and sand bass around 35 ft by San Clemente yesterday! Appears like the bite is on the upswing!

    This south swell will push all that green water out of Izors and the Horseshoe hopefully and it will be a totally different weekend next week.

    Remember, you could have been working.

    If I fished only to catch fish I would have quit fishing a long time ago. Been having the same results last handful of times I went out. Still the best part of my week! Keep on fishin!

    Did you notice the pelagic red crabs floating around? I saw a bunch of them. I was out fishing the horseshoe kelp Saturday and didn’t have any luck either. I wonder if the fish have something better to eat now. Read an article that said it was a good thing though because you know the waters are getting warmer when you see those crabs.

    We were out Saturday out of Long Beach. Conditions were total slop. Very few takers and the only ones that did were on the bottom on red artificials tipped with squid. No other takers. We worked the rigs and some spots outside of the harbor. Came inside when it was too sloppy, which was very early.

    Talked to the DFG at the docks, the only people who had fish were at the islands. It will get better.. hang in there.

    The more you go the more you’ll know,every trip is a learning experience,even when we have a bad day we just keep thinking what we could have done different to increase our odds.
    And then we apply that to the next trip,after many trips you have a lot of options no matter the conditions,although sometimes they just don’t want to play,so enjoy being on the water,enjoy your snacks and refreshments,and be happy you got home safe,there’s always food in the fridge!

    Local (Long Beach) fishing does suck, most of the time.

    It's hard to have everything come together...so many variables have to be right when you think about it: good bait, swell / wind / current / tide / water temps / solunar tables / birds / etc.

    The problem for us casual fishermen / weekend warriors is...we can't always choose when to fish and pick the perfect conditions to go out. We only get to fish when family / work / etc. allow.

    So...this results in frustration when we're forced to fish in crap conditions.

    I keep going back because: I learn every trip, get to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with my boys....etc. Fish are just a bonus when we get them.

    Keep hitting it!

    Izor's has been a downer for several months and the Shoe quit biting a month ago. Hopefully with warmer water things will improve. Never say die!

    What Cory said. Izors has been slow. Horseshoe seems to be a ghost town, for biting fish. But the meter speaks a different story. The volume of bait in the water I think directly affects the fish biting a fishermans line. When the bait starts disappearing the bite should turn on. We hope. Because right now it's all you can eat lots and lots of bait, everywhere.
    But, you've obviously seen the white seabass are chasing bait around and there have been multiple connections so cool. The halibut are showing up in old haunts but no one fishes halibut anymore haha. And with halibut you gotta put your time in. At least 3-4 hours of drifting pounding the spot. Patience. Anyway sorry for the rant keep working at it. You will get better.

    I launched out of Cabrillo yesterday and met a buddy at the wall. We went outside and he wasn't comfortable in his little whailer, so we went back and fished inside. We had a steady pick of bass all morning...all on plastics. After hearing your report, I'm glad I didn't run to Izors(my original destination) It'll pick up

    Fished all day Saturday (6/9) - started at the pipe trolling 6" sardines. Had several strikes - seemed to be small Barracudas from the look of the demolished bait. Anchored up and chummed for awhile with no bites. Headed to Corona Del Mar to see if we could get some bass - just 1 small sheep head. Gonna give it a couple of weeks and try again. Great day on the water though - better than work any day.

    Izors was my go to spot, but I've noticed since last year, Izors has turned off. Seems the fish in the local spots are getting a serious case of lock jaw.
    Hope the fish will start wanting to get in our boats soon. But again a crappy day fishing, beats any day at work.

    Sunday was super slow in the morning around Izors and the horseshoe, but turned on like a switch around 11. We found a shit load of birdschools with cudas eating micro-chovies. Looked like discovery channel out there. WFO on tady Black n white.
