Left early and picked up a beautiful scoop of mixed sardines and Chovie from San Diego bay. Cleared the point at 5:00am. The moon and stars reflection off of the incoming clouds made for a really cool ride out to the 182. At day break we were just shy of the 182 and we almost drove over a small paddy with good marks around 70'. Set up a drift with four rods in the water. Two fly line chovie/sardine and two Carolina rigs chovie/sardine. We spent about 45min throwing a couple baits out every few minutes before we decided they weren't gonna go. As soon as we went to reel in the long soaked line's we got picked up, game on! The next hr or so was chaos, the good kind. My 11year old son Jake and I had a blast! Total count 8yft - 1blue shark and 4 birds. The birds were relentless! At one point I had a Seagull on my lap puking up red crab as I was pulling a hook from it's throat, man those little bastard's bite hard! I finally got the hook out and the gull gets one more bite in for good measure. The bird and I proceed to make three full runs around the boat as I'm trying to get him the hell outta there, cuddy cabin and all. I've never heard my son laugh so hard. That in itself was worth the trip.
