Launched at Davies around 5:30AM. Stopped at Avalon and bought squid from Carnage; Johnny loaded us up with a big scoop. Went to San Clemente (7:40), it was as flat as a pancake. Went to the east end, Fury and 2 other private boats were there. Drifted around the kelp for awhile, until Jim caught a 5# yellowtail. We dropped the anchor there in about 90 feet of water and Jim caught a 17# white seabass & 2 sheephead. I caught 2 keeper calico, and 4 whitefish. I hooked a freight train, but it tangled in the kelp and I lost it. Jim lost a big fish too. We left the island around 3:00 and it was flat until about halfway between Catalina and home. Had to slow down to 25 mph. Back to Davies about 6:00. It was overcast all day, with occasional light drizzle. All in all, it was a great day of fishing. And picked up 5 mylar balloons on the way back.
