    Izors Monday 2/22. Ventured out today to Izors to a beautiful day. Water Temps 57-58, outside Temps in the 70's, wind 6 to 8 all day (bigger winds not till later), 12-15 feet water clarity, no swells to speak of. The water did get dirtier after the winds began picking up in the afternoon.
    Put about 30 on the boat from 8am to 2pm on a solo trip (dogs of course) on plastics. All released. Mixed grade of both Calico and Sand Bass. Up to 21 inches, and down to about 8 inches.
    Tough to find them, but when you did it was on! Drifting put 7 good quality fish on the boat in about 75 feet. I sometimes fish a double rig, had five doubles and a TRIPLE! Brought 3 legal Sandies in at one time, a first for me. Effective depth was all over, from 75 feet to 100 feet. Some fish were suspended, but most on the bottom. Effective colors were mixed too: green, red, chovy, and of course the K-Man red flake was effective.
    Dogs spent some time in the shade of the pilot house, and of course, one went swimming to cool off.
    Check out the pics of regurgitated remains from couple bass. Looks like worm?, squid, eggs?
    Nice day on the water, nice to catch some fish too! Saw a huge flock of cormorants and gulls with a few porpoise working the area too.
    Won't let me put the fish food pics....

    Nice report. Like the dogs. My daughter has a 109 lb black lab and my wife and I have a 102 lb black lab. They like to fish, but the bigger one gets sick. My daughter has to drug him. I have fished with labs for decades. The biggest problem I had with one of my dogs was keeping it from jumping out of the boat.

    One lab usually goes in at least once, more often in the summer?

    Can’t see the pic but could be pelagic crabs. The Dana point boats have been finding them in the sand bass down here

I have fished with labs for decades. The biggest problem I had with one of my dogs was keeping it from jumping out of the boat.

    We used to take our golden retriever fishing with us all the time on our boat at Lake Mead back in the 90's. He loved being out there with us and he was a swimming machine. He even learned how to get back onto the boat via the swim step without any help from us.

    And he would even snag a live shad or two out of the bucket and eat them.

    But we had to keep a close eye on him when trolling along for stripers because he'd jump off the boat just so he could swim. Middle of the lake one day he bailed on us and we didn't notice. Suddenly we were like where's the dog... look behind the boat and he's just paddling along happy as can be.

    Miss that dog, a true fishing companion.

    The first time I took my golden on the boat we were crusing at 8 knts looking for dolphins for the wife and kids. I looked out the window and did a double take...I saw my dog happily swimming around. He had jumped out of the boat and decided to go swimming for the first time ever in 3,000' of water LMAO.

    Awesome report!
