Got a little lazy, so here is a combined report showing off my lack of skills but as you'll read it could have been worse! Wednesday: decided to hit up the west end of horseshoe kelp. I never rock fish, so this was new stuff to me. It was a little foggy in the morning, but a pretty smooth ride heading out there. We fished mainly a dropper loop/double dropper loop, or metal jig with a loop above it and strip of squid. Fished in waters ranging from 150 ft to 250ft. I wound up with 2 sand dabs, and 4 of these little guys: These guys were all released, however all but 1 ended up as bird food, or maybe they all did..... Thursday: My buddy Fernando and I invited our friend Calvin to come along with us to Newport Harbor for the first time. The last couple of outings we've had yielded pretty good results, but today was different! Fernando schooled us both today, catching 2 spotties, and farming one as he approached to lip it. I had 3 short bites, and something bit my big hammer and line clean off after 3 seconds of pulling, small barrie perhaps? However I got the skunk! Bad news: Calvin got skunked as well and was soaked from the waist down due to a hole/tear in his waders, but still fished on. Unfortunately he turned his Kistler Helium II into a two piece: Let's just say, he wasn't fighting a fish when it happened. Cruisin through the harbor, we came across a big boat, anyone have any info on it? It looked pretty cool! Bonus underwater shot of a halibut last time: Thanks for reading!
