    Same results for us as well. We run outta Sunset Aquatic pretty much weekly to 267-209-312-277-14-152-279-499 zones depending upon SST's, swells and current. My buddy and I are pretty decent in the gyros. Haven't seen many paddies lately.

    As the only dock in the harbor they go through bait so fast with their sporties and private boats that having cured bait there is next to impossible...

    Depends on how you perceive "offshore"..seems one poster sees it as far out where it can get rough and the other, as blowing from inland outward...both can get you into serious trouble if the velocity picks up....but, behind the islands on a strong Santa Ana usually provides flat as a lake fishing conditions...Hopefully, September will bring some Santa Anas our way and some local bluefin!

    It takes a week to 10 days to cure bait properly ..with only 8 or 10 wells of bait and handling 3 packed sportboats and being in the busiest private yacht harbor in the world not to mention summer water temps which reduce the amount they can hold by as much as half its impossible to cure bait properly under those conditions..... unless your everingham San Diego who even though they have many more boats they also have 100 plus wells to rotate properly ...
    In redondo we only bait up one sportie and he fishes rockfish 90% of the time ..there are so few bait customers in redondo that we are easily able to have cured bait all the time...

    Mike is usually there from dawn til about 9:30 or 10 but I would call the sportfishing office to make sure..
    Once you meet him and buy bait he will give you a direct number ....

    Redondo bait is inseine. They truly have great bait. It’s only 3 minutes inside of harbor. If your headed south it’s worth your time.

    Yesterday 151 miles, baited 6 marlin (no takers) and not a single tuna in sight. Yay, fishing!

    You better double check w/mike because he's never out there or anybody else . They are sketchy at best

    Same here. Down to the 14 criss crossed to the slide hopping paddies. Lots of marks and even some birds on a few of them but no takers. Went up the slide, fished east end can dumps area and a few spots on front side. Slimy, gross water. Scratched up a 2 lb bonito and a small calico and headed in. Water was glass yesterday so at least we didn’t take a beating hunting around.

    Holy crap. NIGHT AND DAY difference. Ran about 120-150 miles yesterday and bait was going strong all day. I will avoid MDR bait at all cost moving forward

    Did you call first or just take a chance someone would be manning the receiver when you got there ?

    i actually stopped at MDR and was told they were out of bait so i ran down and called from the break wall, he picked up and was just about to leave. either way i was going south so we figured we'd make some macs on paddies if he wasn't around.
