    Fish ID

    I did a quick search on Fishbase, and the closest thing that I could find was the shokihaze goby (Tridentiger barbatus), which was likely introduced in ballast water. Edit: additional source - http://calfish.ucdavis.edu/species/?uid=118&ds=241

    Avalon 7/10

    I can definitely agree with that statement. All the leopards I saw had this beautiful bronze sheen.

    Avalon 7/10

    Took a solo day trip to Avalon to do some fishing. I took the 6am boat out of Long Beach and started off fishing for opaleye. I then saw that calico from my last trip come follow some of the smaller fish that I had caught and released. I caught a senorita wrasse and flylined it next to the...

    Balboa Pier and Newport Harbor 6/20

    Mostly just for bait, but they are good broiled and pan fried.

    Balboa Pier and Newport Harbor 6/20

    Went to Balboa pier at around 7am. There was a lot of micro bait in the water, which was all the fish were eating. I fished a sabiki rig and a kastmaster until 2pm, with only a couple smelt, a lizardfish, and a few mackerel for my efforts. I then made the walk over to a public dock. (I can’t...

    Avalon 6/11

    Jack mackerel have a somewhat different odor, smelling less of blood and more of fish oil. However, they are milder than Pacific mackerel, and I prefer them over the latter. Costs: $75 for the round trip ticket, $10-50 in tackle (depending if I have gone recently or need to buy more weights...

    Balboa Pier 6/10

    They were using sabikis. I have tried using kastmasters with little luck. However, I have used small p-line jigs and megabaits with good results. I used sardine colored jigs.

    Balboa Pier 6/10

    Went to Balboa Pier from 1-4 pm to make bait for a trip to Avalon. I fished a 21 g coltsniper and caught 21 mackerel, while much of the pier went fishless until the last hour.

    Avalon 6/11

    I took the 6 am boat out to Avalon for a 1 day fishing trip. I started off fishing mackerel on dropper loops, while fishing a float rig for opaleye. No opaleye were around, but I did catch quite a few small halfmoon and blacksmith. When I released the smaller fish, an immense (>24") calico came...

    Is there anywhere to get ice on the island other than using the hotel ice machines?

    Happy Birthday, and may there be many more to come!

    That's some great fishing. I should have waited for just a couple days to go so that I could have met you guys and have gotten on the bonito bite.

    Mirage 6/3-6/4

    Went on an overnighter trip on the Mirage to celebrate graduating from high school. The weather was a bit rough, but we were able to make it to San Nicolas. We started off fishing live squid for WSB and yellows, but had no luck. We then switched gears to rockfishing. Conditions were tough, but I...

    Avalon 5/27-5/28

    Nope, didn't see any of them on the island, in fact I was one of the only anglers on the island as far as I could tell. There were a couple opaleye fishermen, but other than that nobody.

    Victory 5/31

    Went out on a 3/4 day trip on the Victory with a very light load (10 people!) We had live squid, so the captain had high hopes. We motored out to some deeper wrecks and picked away at the rockfish. A couple anglers caught nice sized sheephead and big vermilions, but most of the fish were...
