Hooped somewhere in Santa Monica Bay Saturday with my dad. It was VERY windy early, but died around 8ish. Slow night as we only got 3 legals. Probably 20-25 shorts for the night. Nice to be out though.

I heard there was a GOOD crawl Saturday night. I went out Sunday and didnt get a single bug. Talked to some divers at the ramp and they stated they only saw a few while diving. They stated that Saturday they all limited out.

Good to know, havent been up there in a couple years. I have been out once to the island, hooped one of my spots that usually produces easy limits. We pulled sooo many shorts I couldnt count if I wanted to. Still got 18 legal for 50 pulls but that is way off.

I think this warm water has changed the mating cycle and the breeders are hunkered down and the kids are out playing. I think it will get better in a month or so

I heard somewhere that commercial lobster fishing is not allowed in SMB!! But I could be wrong!! :D

I heard the same, however there seems to be a ton of commercial pots in a line extending out from Rocky point for quite a ways. I would think that would be considered Santa Monica Bay. I have never seen any in my spots up near Marina Del Rey and North so maybe there is a cut off line or something. But man those things are all over PV, it's totally insane.

Sounds about right this year in SMB. We did get 11 legals on Saturday but this season has been slow with a lot of shorts. Slowest season I have seen since I started hooping with Vince 13 or 14 years ago.

And yes, no commercial lobstering in SMB from Surf Rider in Malibu south to Redondo from my understanding. And lets all hope it stays that way.
