We got here at 12:30 this morning, and were the 3rd boat here.
At 6 am, there were 24 boats & we've watched a dozen wsb get boated, including one by our new neighbor off our port side (just a squid-throw away).
All fish were caught after 5:30 or so.
Lots of marks, but no luck on this boat so far.

We had fresh dead for bait, and some macks that we jigged up, until we got the call that Pamela Rose was on the way in, and to come get some live squid around 1 at the Newport barge. By that time, only a few boats were left, with not much action except calicos & sandies.
Ran down to the barge & got a fat scoop of squid & baby spanish macks, & went right back up to where the fish were caught earlier, with only 1 boat left.
Basically caught calicos for the next few hours nonstop & had to finally call it around 3:30.
I'm guessing we ended up with 50-60 smaller calicos, 10 + sandies, 1 bat ray, and 0 wsb for the day, all fish released.
Very frustrating to watch fish get hooked less than 50 yards away by someone who just showed up, when you're marking fish all night long. Good times were had, either way. That's fishing.
