Launched out of Santa Cruz on Sunday with my dad and a friend. Boat in the water around 6:45am and dropped a couple Sabiki rigs to pick up some anchovies for live bait. Got the bait in our tank and shot over to Natural Bridges around 7:30am. Drifted live anchovies and squid for 10 rockfish (mix of blacks, vermillions and blues) and a 27" Ling. Also caught 2 undersized lings. My friend caught the Lingcod on a live anchovy and I was glad he did since he hadn't caught a keeper fish in over 10 yrs haha. He was feelin a bit sea sick and his pole got slammed and was bent over, so I yelled at him to pick it up. Picks it up and sets the hook: a few mins later, he has his nice 27" ling thats a nice blue color. Around 11am we decided to try and target halibut instead, so moved over to Mile Buoy. Didn't get any halibut and the wind came up around 1pm. Wasn't anything too bad, but we decided to call it at 2:30 and headed in. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on fishing for White Sea Bass. My dad really wants to hook into one but I've never fished for them. I understand they like squid, and are usually caught in the top 10 ft of the water column. However, is there a particular time of year they show up? I recalls someone saying during the Fall Squid Spawn, which I guess is like Sept-November? If anyone has any advice/ tips, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
