Stayed in Newport last few days. Decided to do a little shrimp pumping and fishing off the jetty. Got a 5lb black bass, 3 BIG greenlings, 1 cabezon, and a whole ton of smaller greenling! Very fun trip indeed. Used a #4 hook, 2-3ft leader, 1.5-2ft dropper and 3-4oz of lead with sandshrimp. Also caught a huge crab, but it was a female so had to release it. Headed back over next week with my boat and the motorhome. Gonna tempt fate in my little duck huntin' boat and try to throw out some crap pots in the bay.
