    Launched from Davies at around 9ish. Damn it was busy.

    Didn’t have a plan, other then to dial in the sonar and mess with my trailer while the boat is off it.
    So it was a low pressure day- just kinda wing it and dick around.

    So we get candy from nacho and work the wall while I play with the fish finder. BTW, didn’t get any bites there.

    Next stop, the oil riggs close to Huntington each. Had a nice steady pick of calicos there.
    So, my anchovie colored hook up bait got bit, chartreuse didn’t. Old faithful yellow lead head with live squirts got bit a couple times. My buddy had some gulp baits that killed it. They were anchovie colored smelts with about a 1/4” lead head.
    Looking out the the 150 looked like a parking lot. Zoom on the pics and you’ll see

    After that decide to head toward Newport Harbor to drift for some butts and spotties with the candy..... fished the tide swing but didn’t catch shit there. The current wasn’t moving much.
    BTW, got boarded by F&W on the way into the harbor.

    Left there for Izors and had a good pick at sandies. I had to switch to a lead head to an egg slider with a 2/0 hook. Then had the take off the 1/2 slider and add a 3/4. As soon as we get to the bottom... BOOM it was on.

    By now the sun is setting and we head back in. F&W are at the ramp checking everyone, so make sure you are aware of all the rules before you head out.

    That a wrap. Check out the pics.

    Some things I forgot to mention is that the calicos at the rigs ate the plastics more then the live squid.
    Also, the sandie in the pic that my buddy is holding was 19” and I was caught with a 3 way swivel 1-0 off the bottom.
    And, I got a giant sculpin from there on the egg slider 2/0 hook.
    It was a pretty good bite there about 1-2 hours after the tide swing
    Go get’m!

    Drifting. Most the bites were down current close to the piers. All but 1 of the checkers were short.
    Also, this was about 1-2 hours before the tide swing.
