Decker and I fished SCI on my boat Sunday. Launched out of Long Beach with a plan to start on the east end and work up the back if needed. The tide was still pretty low when we arrived and most of our shallow stuff needed more water on it so we looked at a couple of deeper spots first for nada despite 62 degree water, good uphill current and lots of bait around. Went shallow and got a couple bites but the clear water and lack of surge made fishy looking spots very hard to find. Decided to head up the back of the island and see what we could find. Three hours later we'd fished every good looking spot between the east and west ends and never saw a bass. It was almost noon so we decided to look at one more kelp bed and then head home.Just as we were coming out of the Castle Rock closure Decker saw some birds that were just coming together on the edge of the kelp in deep water. As we pulled up the current pushed the anchovies the birds were on up against the kelp and the bass went nuts. There was a huge volume of chovy in the area and it seemed like every bass at the island was there to eat it. At times there were hundreds of bass boiling and jumping out of the water as far as the eye could see in every direction. When they’d corral a big ball it looked like the big bluefin foamers of the last few years except brown. The fish chased the bait so far away from the kelp that we were catching them in 150 feet of water. The fish only wanted the hard bait but we ended up with 60 or 70 fish in an hour. Here's a video I took after things had slowed down a bit. Was having too much fun to get the camera out but I did snap cell phone pics of a couple of the standouts. Left them biting at 1:15 and had an amazing ride home. From Cat to the coast it was calm enough to trim my boat out to the point where I averaged 3 MPG at 37 MPH. If your a skiff owner you can appreciate how flat it was. Water was 62-63 at the island, 64 between the islands and broke 66 in a couple areas inside Cat. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it’s probably going to be another early offshore season.
