Sunday 11/17/19, Cabrillo

Anyone interested in heading out to cabrillo tomorrow? I plan to fish the morning starting around 6:30-7ish. Drift for halibut and sculpin, and fish for sandies.

Might launch on the beach side and angle for calico and sheepheads.

Shoot me a pm if you are interested.

No such luck.

Made 4 grunion (I think) for bait, they were pretty big tho (about 8-10" long, and pretty fat), bigger than I have had luck with for halibut. On the paddle in I felt like something might have been tugging at the bait, I let it go for a while but i was pretty sure it as just in the grass. I pulled the bait in and it had a few holes around its tail and rear half of the fish that were consistent with halibut teeth. They were out there, but I think I would have been better off with sardines.

8-10Ē bait is the minimum size I use when Iím fishing, the last halibut that I landed hit a greenback that was 10-11 inches. When you use large bait youíll spend more time doing nothing but drifting and less time hooking and releasing bycatch like sandbass but rest assured that when something swallows that larger bait itís not going to be a small fish.


Go big or or home!!

Tips from the man himself. Appreciate it. I will have to get back out there soon and give it another go.

There are two more launches from the beach at Cabrillo.

One on the inside of the harbor but from the beach with no waves and one from the beach outside the harbor with usually small waves.

I hear there are lots of bass in the harbor but I have never fished there. The water is cleaner and there are a few larger models outside of the harbor if you don't mind the surf.

I usually start in the green circle and move up the coast staying right in the kelp. I start at the point and when they stop biting there I move to thicker kelp around the corner. Vertical jigging in the kelp almost always produces. I have only had one bad trip 4 at four smallish fish.

I don't keep anything I catch here. The water is cleaner than in the harbor but it is still right next door.

I would not recommend going through the breakwater opening at Angel's gate. It is not too far but the afternoon wind will be right in your face coming back. I made that mistake once. I thought I would never get back to the beach.

Best of luck.
