Little sketchy going out today, as the spit has disappeared. We tried to hit it on the slack low, but with the water coming out of the river, you had to pay attention. Kinda fast drift with a steady wind blowing through the canyon. It finally laid down and we were able to get some good drifts in. Let go more legals than we kept and sent back a MONSTER vermillion,just for karma. All on CJ tackle swimbaits. 60-130 ft, 4 labs, thanks again! That spot is KILLER. HAVE FUN!

Whip you guys are KILLING ME. I doubt you had any traffic going out and no blacks ? If you don't get blacks out at the "garden" head in to submarine rock. Its the rock about 1 1/2 north of the jetty and looks like a submarine 1/2 mile off the beach and 30-50 ft with a nasty bottom and lots of kelp there's a long reef that sits 10 ft above high tide. The end of april the blacks and lings really move in there. No crabs ?

Made it back to GB for some early am bottom fishing and crabbing NOOA said 3 ft seas 6 ft wind waves and didn't believe it thought it would be a lot nicer boy was I wrong. Dropped off the pots 1/4 mile north in 35ft to a "excited ocean" and headed out 2 1/2 miles to the "garden" were Whip goes and started to hear a voice that said "don't do it". A insane fast drift wind aided (sounds familiar) and lost gear on each drift did me in ,Say good by to breakfast. Lost 2 large lings and got my blacks just couldn't take it , wind waves got at least to 8ft .made it back to the pots to a lot of crabs but only 6 legal males after a 1 1/2 soak.
Fish the bay to big crowds and 0 for me but lots of fish caught.
Fished late friday at high tide , ramp empty everyone fishing past 101 bridge. at least 100+ boats and maybe 20+ guide boats some I've never seen.
Had 4 take downs and lost 1 at the net. Ran out of anchovies and went to a Brads plug cut in silver and blue dots with a anchovy tail in it .
17 lb took it at Indian creek in 10 mins after I put it on. When the dredge leaves will be nice with a lot of room and a deep channel.
Good luck to all and God Bless

I know what you mean! Give me a call next time you are headed down there if you need a deck hand!

I think I should be your deck hand. My recent runs have been pretty disappointing. Time to teach a old dog some new tricks plus your boat is bigger.

We finally dot a narrow window today and took advantage. Splashed the boat about 8:45 and lines in about 9:15 Kinda jackass conditions and a pretty fast drift at first. The ling bite was OFF the charts, and we had 8 legal linsgs by 10:30. We got into a school fish bite and got some really nice olives and a few blacks.Great weather as the day progressed and back in by noon! HAVE FUN! Oh yea..... Thanks Mark!IMG_5622.JPG
