Took a quick trip yesterday to the Channel Islands with Capt David Bacon of Wave Walker Charters. I told him that I wanted to specifically target Sheepshead, since I had never caught a decent one before and wanted to get one before I move from CA this week. Capt Dave indeed put us on the Sheepshead as we ended up with 15 up to 14lbs or so (didn't get a good photo of the biggest one) as well as around 10 Whitefish (some of which were very large; 6lbs+) and around 12-15 shallow water rockfish. I hooked what felt like a really big Sheepshead but it spit the hook after a couple big head shakes. It was a little chilly out there and the wind was not as low as was forecasted but we were able to get in tight to the islands to fish some good spots before the winds picked up. All but a couple fish released. First pic is the crawdads I was keeping in my tub that I used for bait.
