The fish bite was off and on today. Had to "work" to catch them. Decent early morning bite, caught 2 short Sand bass, 1 legal size Sculpin (released), 1 small Bonito (released). Fishing slowed down until 11 a.m. when mackerel appeared. Caught Spanish and Pacific Mackerel and Topsmelt. Bonito bite was slow. Many fisherman chasing Mackerel and Bonito left by 10:30.

Caught fish on anchovy, mackerel and sardine. Bonito on sabiki.

Sculpin spit out small baitfish when I landed it. Looks like a small perch. See photos.

Good luck fishing this weekend!
