I wa fortunate to spend a day Inshore fishing with Benny Florentino yesterday. Benny has a nice 24 foot boat and provided all the gear (Shimano) from Curado 200's to the Tranx as well as a new Torium 16 HG. All reels filled with Spectra. We started the morning fishing off of Newport, worked up through Long Beach and end up at PV searching for a good bite. We never fished bait and it was great to use all the gear Benny provided and fish a variety of baits from plastics to the Tady 45. We never found the Y/T that would take the artificials but did find some nice calico's. Benny shared a lot of his knowledge fishing along the coast and I had a great time.
