Not a bad day at all in the harbor. Same thing happened last year with some yellowfin being seen and caught in the harbor. Maybe it's a sign things are about to change

I love saving on gas.

Good luck making out of the harbor any time soon.

A story that will be great to tell as grandpa.

No way!! What were you using? Every time we go out fishing I always throw a trolled out coming back in the harbor just for that one last chance. Where at in the harbor? We were just there today too

    whichever has the longest bunk
    Excellent! I believe you, fish follow food and there are a lot of tiny grunion and pinhead anchovies around the mouth of the harbor. From time to time even whales manage to get inside Newport Harbor. El Nino hot water summer -- anything is possible.

    Under the bridge on a lucky craft 110 in about 5ft of water Seriously!!! I couldn't believe it
    What size Luck Craft was it?

    It was a lucky craft 110 all chewed up from calicos and barracuda. Time to retire it

    that is awesome.

    I hope you took a pic with your son, being two year old he will never remember it, and it will be a great photo for him to look back on when he is older.

    Congrats on a crazy catch.

    I'm surprised those small hooks held. Or did you change them out to larger ones?
