Started the day off in the San Diego Bay around the landing. My buddy gave me a few small scopes of bait to fish with from his boat. 90% small macs with a few sardines. After two drifts for nada, off to the PL kelp area to look for lingcod with this great bait. My buddy joins me there and we both look for dinner. After about an hour they give up and went to look for calicos on the way in. I stayed a little longer to use up the bait. Landed two within 10 minutes of each other and called it a day. Big one is 8 lbs/29". Gave the 24" greenie to my buddy on my way in. Beautiful out there with rolling swell and little wind. Both caught on 1/0 j-hook, baja loop with 6oz weight, 30lb test.

It was dirty around the kelpline and further out. Lots of birds diving on bait stirred up by porpoise. i did not try to see if there was fish under the birds cuz focused on catching a ling for dinner.
