    I remember the last time it was like that.It took us about 5 hours to get back from Catalina on the Blackjack.The city of Redondo sank in the harbor and the bait receiver ended up inside the Portofino Inn.

    The whole dock would have been on the rocks if not for the guys puttin in extra moorings and making vast improvements...
    As it is a receiver was blown out busting up 4x4s


    although amazingly retrieved ...

    That storm that sunk the City was Jan. 18, 1988. I think that was the right date. Glen Mueller ruffed it out with the Sepcial tied in the slip in the Lagoon.

    Yeah I think that was the right date on the sinking of the "City"I fished it the day before,I think Rick Ofinger or Derry were running it the day before,I remember it sinking in the harbor.

    Didn't know the City sank in the harbor. So what did they do with it?
    I used to fish the Special when Eric was deckhand.

    Is it still up there? I heard it was last in Ensenada but that was years ago. I was always a Special kid growing up. At rare times I would skip a weekend of fishing and be a Sea Spray kid.

    As a kid, I used to grab bonita out of the rocks inside the harbor when the surge was big, then sell them for $.50 each.

    Great photo. Saw some waterfalls coming over the MDR break wall as well but not like that. Did take my son down to Grand Ave at Dockwiggles on that day as well. Surf was big.

    The Bonita were thick inside the harbor, if you got to the pier early and got a spot on the end you could throw a yellow feather with a clear bobber 1/2 full of water and catch yellowtail.

    The surge would wash the bonita up in the rocks and you could time it, hop down and grab them by the tail and get out before the wave hit the rocks. We used a rag to grip them, toss them in a 5 gallon bucket. Get a full bucket and we would sell them.

    This was 35+ years ago

    Grabbing a hot bonito by the tail in the water is definitely something I would have to see to believe..
