I think you have the right idea.I try to never leave fish to find fish, let the other guys find tuna.then make your move.Yt eat and fight just fine,and i would never look down on a nice bass or even a sculpin,lol.I wasted 2 trips to the 150 for nothing. Just go to Catalina and get live squid. Worked for me as well as most other people I talked to over there. I just got back after 5 days. Yellows all over the front side. The bass fishing was just stupid.They were hitting my powerbait without even reeling. I even saw yellows caught on the outer moorings of Descano and Hamilton cove. The Island is popping right now.
