Caught mixed bag of Spanish and Pacific Mackerel with some Jacksmelt today. Spanish Mackerel were the early morning bite. Hitting on shrimp, squid and anchovy on a hi/lo rig. About 10:00 a.m. Pacific Mackerel and Jacksmelt started biting. Used sabiki tipped with mackerel, shrimp and squid. Spanish Mackerel returned to add variety to the mix. No hits on live smelt as bait.

Very few fisherman today. Good luck!
