Easy day on the water, pretty much all to myself. I picked up 50 or so PIlchards in the morning, and headed off shore. Tried to p/u bigger baits at Green roofs, Radnor, and pier, no luck. (marked but not biting)
Made my way east hitting first ledge, Juno Ledge, Zoo, . Drifted the ledge at 110, then 170,,,,,,drifted over Rattican , Miss Jenny, Train Wreck and some of my usual drift spots. Nothing going, only a couple of hits, Bonitas and big blue runners all over.
Finally set the anchor at 1pm or so in 60 feet and fished my baits till the end. Strong bite on live bait, small grouper, Snapper, and Rainbows. Took home some fish for dinner and said a prayer for all the dead bait....
BTW.......only thing that would touch the cut sardines were grunts.......LIve bait hook up 10- 1.
