Hey everyone, I'll start off giving a brief intro about myself so you all can all see my current situation. Me and my dad just joined a boat club out of Dana Point that has 3 boats, a 22 center console, a 23 dual console, and a 24 center console. We took out the 22 for our first fishing trip yesterday morning hoping to target any inshore fish species. Left the harbor around 9 and had glassy seas on our way to our coordinates (which we got from Your Saltwater Fishing Guide). Lots of mackerel boils on the way there, but no birds diving. Got to the spot, which was near San Onofre, and started to try and mark fish. Being our first time fishing on the boat, we had difficulties maneuvering the boat on the coordinates and finding fish. Fast forward about 5 hours, and we ended up trying multiple spots ranging from Domes to Headlands, but due to our lack of experience, we didn't catch anything. I believe it is mostly because we hard a difficult time positioning ourselves on top of the structure we saw, and by the time we did see it on the fish finder, it was gone. Anyways, we are both new to saltwater fishing (from a private boat) and any advice would be helpful. Whether it relates to fishing, staying on location/structure, positioning a boat, etc, I'm all ears. I appreciate anyone who read through this whole post. After about a year of wishful thinking, me and my dad finally have the opportunity to go inshore and offshore fishing. I'll continue to post reports, updates, and ask questions the more I go fish. Once again, any advice for a new private boat fisherman (range: Long Beach/Oceanside/Catalina) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, and have a good day.
