Managed to get out again with my fishing partner Bryan. FN fog was fairly thick, so we took it easy heading to Redondo for bait. Met Mike just before 6AM, and we were plugged with week old 6-7 inch sardines. Handed Mike some Monster drinks and various 4-packs of Starbucks Frappacinos. Headed back up the line to the same area we fished last Saturday for 4 legal Halibut. 1st bait down my partner is hammered, and before I can even get a bait out he's got a nice Halibut, about a third of the way up *snap*, bring it up and 30 pound leader broke. Had to keep it positive so dropped my bait, turned my back as there was no drift, was kicking the motor in and out of gear, when I hear "John your rod", come flying out of the cabin grab the stick, free spool, 1 and 2 and BINGO, 5 minutes later, in the net and we're on the board, now 7:55 AM. 5 minutes later, another Halibut up in the net, measured and just a hair short, tagged and back the fish goes. After approximately 30+ minutes turned around and back on the spot. We're both hammered immediately, my partner goes through the same scenario except this time it just comes unbuttoned and he's fit to be tied. Brought my fish up, in the net, measured, 20 inches, tagged and splash goes the Halibut. 15 minutes later I managed another short, 20 inches again, tagged and splash it goes. By now it's high tide and I move from the area. Moved up the line a mile and found a nice Sculpin rock, Bryan managed a handful of nice ones, all returned to live another day. Up the line some more. Where does it stink the most in SMB, other than the MDR breakwater? We kept moving north only to find Sand Bass, fooey and all returned back to the water. We never saw the Sun until 12:30 PM, just foggy and calm all morning. There was no volume of bait like there was the previous week. We called it a day at 1:30 NOTE: Watch out for the &)[email protected]#&)[email protected]#& crack-head tweakers at the launch ramp as they try to tag-team you, do not turn your back on them! Enjoy, and be safe out there!
