    Conditions getting better and better.
    Water cleaning up, temp near 65, bait EVERYWHERE.
    Smelt, macs, red crab and of course big fat sardines.

    Hopefully the yellows, bacaruda and bonito at the island roll up here soon.

    Seals terrible.
    Took every single bait i had out.

    Ended up dmoking the 'dines that i caught.
    Was not gonna give them to the coyotes.

    I surfed this morning and the water was cold in a spring. Water was clear though and better looking. Just too much wind on it over the last week. No real wind today. So, hopefully things are starting to come together.

    Nope.

    Even if you did, don't include it in the Rpt.

    Try this recipe. Put the smoked deans in the food processor add some Tapatio hot sauce, green onions and cream cheese. Process this mixed well. Spread on a toasted bagel or crackers.

    Thanks for the report man. I’ve never eaten sardines but hear they can be really tasty. Do you brine them? And how long do you smoke them for?

    Here’s my sardine recipe:

    1. Soak sardines overnight in olive oil, sriracha sauce, rosemary, and salt.
    2. Bake in oven for 30 minutes on 350
    3. Make a dip out of mustard, mayo, and pickles
    4. Throw away the sardines and eat the oven.

    Is this April fools? If not this is a very troubling post. Tomorrow we are all going to see a post titled "Half Scoop of Dines, Fed the Whole Family".

    Got the recipe off google.
    Head, gut, the scaling takes care of itself.

    Brine for 8 hours or so rinse, dry, leave in fridge for a few hours.
    Smoke at 185 degrees 3 hours or so.
    Crackers and mayo. Bones lift roghtbout or so small you don't notice them.

    Good stuff.

    Anybody ever had canned sardines before? I did when I was a kid. Straight out of the can on a saltine cracker. Not too bad and they're supposed to be really healthy too. Your smoked dines look even better. I remember reading a post not too long ago on BD talking about flying fish being great table fare. Anywho, at least you went fishing.

    Or just go to Trader Joe’s and buy some Smoked, Canned Sardines...

    Good on Saltines. Also try Brunswick Kippered Snacks. (Herring) they are not as fishy.

    This is the saddest fish report I have ever seen.

    People are paying good money for Saba sushi ( Macks ) so I guess this is kind of related.
    I hate wasting food, so I can't fault you for eating what is edible.
    I prefer to save my summer leftover deans for chunk material , but to each his own.
    Loved canned sardines on toast with mustard and onions as a kid.

    Well whatever makes it a better day? Being on the big pond beats working and many other chores!

    One question that pops up for me is the water quality they lived in prior to capture and how long they cured in the box, in Mission Bay. Not saying I haven't eaten them but I think I would rather eat a sardine from Nova Scoitia from here on.

    Those sardines look great! I had fresh smoked sardines once in a Tapas bar, they were awesome!

    People here are turning up their noses at them, thinking of canned sardines (which I like eating too), but I think fresh smoked sardines are to canned sardines, as fresh tuna steaks are to Starkist.

    Fresh caught on sabikis off Mission Beach. Which is why it is a fishing report.
    I haven't paid for bait in years. Way tpoo pricey for me and not as much fun.
