Damn its been long...finally the weather wants to be nice. Took my friends slash coworkers hooping to catalina island. Beautiful weather and seas. Lobster season almost. Finished hooping by 11pm got 30 legals for 6 peeps. The crawl happen between 7-9pm low tide. Then went slow from 9-11 when high tide came. Good times with my friend and coworkers. Hooped 30-50ft. Salmon heads for bait. Seals still a problem.

    Nice job taking groups out to get bugs! Even Bernie got some! You seem to be steady on getting them-wish my boat was large enough to do Cat safely.

    What area do you typically target out there? Heading out this weekend and trying to figure out our plan.
    Depends on the swells and winds. If its nice calm seas I usually hit up the west end of the island. And if its choppy and windy I hoop the east end. Usually peeps say hoop deep during the last months but I dont feel like pulling 180ft. So I've been doing 30-50ft and have been successful so far. Middle grounds between the mlpa sucks. Lots of horn sharks
