Well thanks to all who gave great advice on my Smelt thread. I launched at 630am yesterday and made a tone of smelt at a balboa fishing dock. Used umbrella net and sabiki. That umbrella net worked but its cheap and the arms popped out twice as I was pulling it up. The sabiki produced some 5-6" which in hind site would have made a great dinner if I could catch 20 or 30! more on that another day. Paddled out to the jetties and drifted each side (inside) just off the rocks as the tide was outgoing. Good movement. My setup was a #4-#6 owner baithook (depending on bait size) on 3' of 12# floro and a 1/4 oz slide sinker on the main line. Had one good run on a 5" smelt but no hook up. I grew up fishing the Gulf Coast and this is exactly how we fish flounder except I use a circle hook and finger mullet. Anyways, 2.5 hours of that and NADA! Headed back into the harbor and picked up a 17" halibut and some bass and called it a day at Noon. Relaxing day but I think I will paddle out between the jetties and the Balboa Pier next time and bounce bottom. I've been told by 2 sources this is a good flatty area. Confirmation? Any Halibut help would be great. Oh, and I don't mind paddling to find them.
