if u stayed local how did u do? My boat ended with 11 in 4 sets in 3 different locations. Not bad but not good either. Buddy boat ended with 5, other buddy with divers ended with 10...seemed really slow last night compared to how people easily limited out at cat. Bait used were skippies, macs and even salmon heads. None worked better than the others they were all equally the same. Also had some hint of gooch in all so maybe it didn’t make much of a difference...dropped in 20-50’...

I didn't go, but it sounds like you had all of the right bait!

Went to glorietta bay ramp Saturday about 4pm. Watched boat ramp follies while waiting. Finally launched only to find my preferred spots were taken. Managed 2 nice legals, a couple shorts . Returned to ramp at 10pm, watched more launch ramp fails. Went home. I usually don’t hit opener night but I did this time and wasn’t disappointed in the traffic

Thanks! Maybe we'll buy some cards and give it a try this year.
How's boat traffic? Is it a sea of boats or has the enthusiasm year over year waned a bit? Friday nights are a good option, or sunday. I find it hard to get in and done and home and to work Monday morning.

The past couple of years it got increasingly difficult to find any legals - just all shorts.

Do we still have to pay for two years' fishing license to hoop one season? That pisses me off right there. LOL

And I see I forgot to send my cards in from '16 so I'll have to pay an extra $50 to get the wife and I's report cards. Dumbass. o_O We bought cards and never went out.
