Today I went out fishing off La Jolla in the thick fog. GPS’s are amazing ,I was able to navigate my way from the Mission Bay Channel up to Torrey Pines in my 16 foot boat without seeing any landmarks. The positive side, was it was very calm, no wind no swell.
I started catching Reds and caught my limit and released 13, either smaller fish or Bocaccio (which we can only keep 2 in California). All releases with the EcoLeeser RokLees Fish Descender went well, one fish came off early, but he was deep enough that I was able to see him swim down on his own. My Roklees was set-up with 1 pound weight on a release rod to release the fish. I was catching fish in 240 foot and released at 100 foot.
I spent most of the morning using the 10 oz Lucanas jig, trying different methods to get the bigger Reds to bite. It was successful, the reds caught on the Lucanas were bigger than the ones caught on bait.
