LJ 1/4

First trip in 2021! Launched at 0900. Water temp was about 60 degrees. With a wnw and w swell (each less than 1 foot but at 4s interval) it was a little choppy launch but the ride was good most the day. Snagged my only sabiki so I had to commit to plastics early. Tried out dropshotting for the first time with a 6” scented white jerk bait. Came up with a Calico and a Barracuda at the NW corner.

The afternoon took a turn for the worse with the wind picking up. Pairing that with the short interval swell made a pretty precarious trip back. I never have stability issues with the Shearwater 125 but today there were a few close calls pedaling in.

Ultimately I was trying to target Halibut. I found some sandy bottoms denoted by the yellow bottom returns on the FF. Looked like a couple thin arches just on the bottom but no Halibut on the line. Any input on what I should be looking at on the FF for Halibut?

Look for bait balls hugging the bottom and drop down through then. Also look for sandy stress around structure in my experience. I have also got a few halibut when I was rockfishing. Good by catch lol.

Thanks for the input. I might hang it up until March 1 when Rockfish opens back up. And the squid start showing up...
