Just a quick report, but no pictures, so if you need pictures you can stop reading this now.

My daughter wanted to spend the day with me on the boat for an early Father’s Day. She and her husband brought all the food and drink and we launched the boat in Huntington harbor at 10 AM. Including my wife it was just the 4 of us. The plan was to cruise from HB to Newport harbor and just take a nice ride, but I knew we would be going by the pipe on the way so I took a couple of bass sticks.

Once I got to the pipe I started looking around and found some good marks. For the next hour it was game on, mostly sand bass but a few checkers mixed in. Had a steady pick going, but they were getting hungry and wanted to move on to Newport.

Just a nice relaxing day, until I started back to Huntington and the wind was blowing SW all the way back which made for a bumpy ride.

Happy Fathers Day

Rusty, thanks for this post.

The pipe has almost always been hit or miss for me.

Glad you could pull on something.

Nice to get out with family. And throw some fishing in to boot.

Another father and I are going out tomorrow for the local 3Bs, as I think Cat is gonna be a shitshow.
