Left Davies about 5pm after getting off work. Crossing was slightly choppy, thanks to the mild Santa Ana. Arrived a little after sunset, getting dark quick now. Would have like to arrived a little earlier and set up in daylight, but in the end it didn't matter. Found a nice stretch of coast and dropped our 8 hoops. First pull was the best I've ever had. One net had 6, a couple had 5, and I think all other had 2. Turned out to be 12 legals in the first set. Now were pumped! With visions of our first limit, we reset. Not as good, but we probably got 4 legals. Kept working it as we were determined to get limits. Started getting pestered by seals and things slowed down after about 9pm. After 10ish we were only getting 1 legal per set. Got our limit just before midnight and decided to head for home in the dark. First time making the crossing in the dark.
