Were you in front of Crystal Cove area just south of the harbor? It was insane on Sunday. How much did those suckers weigh?

UnFrickenReal!!!!!!!! Someone is going to catch a bft from a jet ski or surfboard. Wide open two miles from the mouth of the harbor.

Makes me wonder if we are going to have hammerheads close to shore all summer long.

Almost forgot- Way to go for the kids.You've just addicted them for life.

Nice job! Super jealous. 5 of us rolled out on the yaks 3 miles out from crystal cove but couldn't find them. Went home with bass and rockfish on Saturday. Not Sunday

Ok, so only 2 miles, but 7 + miles round trip! We just need to stick to the plan next time! Rockfish will always be there.

Tuna fishing we are having this year is just off the hook....
Great job getting your kids on a bite like that so close to home. I am sure you were not even thinking tuna when you put the plan together..


I am shocked this thread has not gotten more traction...

I like to respond to the kids reports. It always brings out the memories of when my dad took me out on 1/2 day boats out of arts landing, now newport landing, some 55 years ago. I still tell stories about my experiences and given your childrens unbelievable day they will to. Great report.

2 miles from the harbor with kids and a boat load of quality bft, just amazing.

I wouldn't want to be a sushi restaurant owner in so cal right now, everyone is simply getting their own A-grade "market price" bft.
