How's that fir a 3/4 day rockfishing trip. More than likely out at the islands. Channel islands. Around Cruz or Santa Rosa I'm betting. Channel islands is some excellent fishing.. I fish there most.. ive caught halibut year round. Plenty rockfish and sheep heads during season no issues. This is a well known charter. If it's on a weekend. Hit me up. I git a decent lil sled. Nottin fancy but it's a fishing machine. Sanya Barbara or just tad east into ventura you git some great cattle boats. I'm going by watching and falling there Instagram posts and fish counts. I haven't fished a charter since 12. Only my own or buddies boats. Last 15 yrs. I'm just still learning but I know the islands pretty gd.

Ps. This was yesterday.
