#8230, "Halibut are biting in Dana Point Harbor..."


  

          

My brother and I launched about 7:30 and fished till 11:30. I took the plunge and fished with live bait, Gundy at the bair receiver was cool and gave me quite a scoop of chovies and 'deans for $5.00, and I understand you can come back for more if you run out. I didn't even use half.

My 'bro said yuk and fished swimbaits and rapalas. We both caught four or five halibuts, a couple in the 16-20" range as well as some bass barracudas mackerals and croakers.

Oh and I caught a 27" halibut as well. Had a beautiful halibut steak dinner tonight, and more in the freezer and fridge!

I used a fishfinder for the first time, very interesting!
I got a real kick out of "seeing" the bottom structure and fish.

I also used my baytuber laundry basket bait well for the first time. Worked well for the bait, but very draggy to troll. I just finished burning a zillion holes in the bottom with a soldering iron to keep it from acting like a sea-anchor so much, hope it helps...a lot.
Well back to work snelling up trap rigs for next time.

BTW...I watched more than a few others getting the flatties as well, they are on the bite, it would seem...
