Quick report. Fished Sunday 3/24. Fished with my Daughter, Dad, Brother and a bunch of friends on a chartered trip (Thank you Matt!)
Excellent fishing. Limits of massive rockcod and near limits of Lingcod and some big White fish and Sheepshead also came over the rail. No WSB but someone did catch a nice Barracuda. Deck hand also said a YT was caught on the previous trip

Boat: Very helpful crew and very patient. Great experience and definitely will jump on the Toronado again. I cant say enough about the quality of service. Food was great and the Toronado is comfortable

Bait: cut Squid and live sardine.

Weather: the ride out there on Saturday night called for some wind and so it was a little bit bumpy but in the morning it was Lake Pacific.

What Worked: made several good drifts and just about anything would catch fish. Cut squid worked well. The chuckleheads really wanted the live sardine. Used P line shrimp flies in red and white color. Lingcod ate the White grub on a 16 ounce lead head. Also tried out a SS 20 Viper spoon (east coast thing) and that thing worked really good on a dropper Loop with a live sardine for lingcod. Hooked 3 and only landed two on that setup.
