I got a call from Sushimi on Sunday saying "Let's go!". We have been fishing together for several years and our best fishing trips are usually "spur of the moment". We decided we wanted to sleep in, so we got a late start around 8:30. I kissed my wife and told her I wasn't coming back without fish....she rolled her eyes. We knew the fishing had been bad and the water was dirty so we just decided to "Enjoy the Day". Sometimes trips just seem to work out the way you would like them to. When we got to Nacho's we saw that he had live squid available. He said that he had just gotten it in within the hour so we considered ourself lucky to have decided to leave late. Today was already looking good. The weather was beautiful. The fishing was really not that bad. We started North of the L.A. Light and worked South, drifting on several waypoints along the way. We had a couple of spots that were very productive. Some spots we were able to catch calico bass. One spot produced a couple of Sheepshead. One spot held Whitefish. We laughed and kept saying..."Enjoy the Day" (our new motto.)....and best of all, when I arrived home with my wife waiting in the driveway with her hands on her hips, I was able to climb out of the cab of my truck with my head held high. I have never been one to keep whitefish. I usually throw them back. I remember them being very bony and fishy. But Sam said that they're really not that bad...so I decided to keep one. As it turns out, they are actually pretty tasty. My wife dipped them in Panko and fried them in oil. We were both surprised at how good they tasted.
