My son and I planned on fishing the Redondo bonito bite this morn, but after reports of the Pacific Carnage tanked with squid at Avalon, we changed our game plan and crossed the channel with some sardines from Nachos as insurance. Made the crossing in 50mins with awesome water conditions. Unfortunately, no squid boats anywhere and we couldn’t raise the Carnage on the radio or phone. So much for the candy bait plan . We then ran up to the isthmus and caught a few smaller sized bonitos on slow trolled sardines. Also had a decent pick on the calicos at Johnson Rock on fly lined sardines. Definitely on the slower side for us. Even though the fishing wasn’t great, the weather was phenomenal, the beers were cold, Zac Brown filled the air with Catalina in the background all while spending quality time with my son. Great day! Just as a note, when we were about half way back to Huntington Harbor around 130pm, we saw a thick fog bank starting to take over the island and we heard radio chatter that it was pretty thick. Also had a friend who reported great calico bass and bonito fishing at Rocky Point and Lunada Bay. A couple guys chatting on radio about yellowtail at Rocky Point, but no confirmation of that.
