We had a Light load today due to a scheduling mishap. I took a group of 10 anglers up the coast for some fun in the shallow waters. 50 feet or less. We managed full limits of rockfish, a fish per rod on the lings, limits of bass and a handful Of Halibut. We will be at the islands or the point where he next 2 days, I believe there might be a few spots available for Sunday’s trip. I have room all week.

Final count

110 rockfish (10 limits plus crew)
10 ling cod
20 striped bass (10 limits)
6 Halibut
1 cabazon
