    Trolled a lot and drifted a lot. Got bait in the dark and headed in the direction of the Whistler bouey metered around a bit. Started heading south dragging a bunker colored Rapala stayed in about 175' of water. Caught 2 Bonito before I hit the border. Made a u turn and trolled back in the direction I came from but out a bit deeper around 250'. Made it back to the Whistler area which had now gathered a crowd of a few six pack looking boats and a bunch of PB'ers. Decided to drift that area for a while because I get super bored trolling and at this point it had started getting a bit bumpy when heading north. I caught a legal sized ling a sculpin on bait both released, and a 3rd Bonito on the white sumo yoyo. (6xjr size) . The area around the Whistler looks like it's about to fire off. I metered several good looking marks, some packs of fish, I just couldn't get them to eat the jigs. After that I headed to the bay to make a few drifts before I called it a day. I had several baits racked., and caught 5 sandbass one of which was probably legal. I brought the 2 troll bones home. One was full of eggs. But after I finished cutting., and was about to clean the boat I noticed something on the deck. I think it might be krill but I'm not sure It may be the reason that I could not get the fish to eat the jigs or baits too well.

    North Pacific Krill, Euphausia pacifica. Never seen bones full of them, though. Early season, cooler water phenomenon perhaps. Was off Carlsbad on Saturday, SST was a chilly 58.5. Much cooler this late in the season as we’ve had in a while...
