Went redondo jetty over the weekend. I saw baitfish boil at surf line so I cast out lucky craft 110 crown color and caught 2 halibut up to 21”. It was too dark to put it on go pro. Once sun comes out fishing slow down. But I see lots bonito cruise by and able to manage to catch one. I’m sure they will start to bite soon

We've found they will bite on mini smelt flylined on light line. Got two bites, one fish last weekend. One on a "Cracker crunchers" rig.

May try water bobber and mini smelt this weekend.

Sounds great. Hopefully, they will start to chew soon. It’s gonna be fun~

Cool vid. Really putting the English on those plugs. I just grind and maybe add pause. Cause I'm too spazzy to work the rod so carefully.

Hey mc nug, what is cracker cruncher rig?

Good fishin'!

"Cracker Cruncher Rig": Just like a hamburguesa rig, except MUCH smaller.

1/4oz kastmaster with a 2 1/4 inch live smelt hooked through the lips. Cast out, retrieve with slow twitch.
