    Dragged some flies on the outide of Pt Loma kelp with moderate success. My brother landed a nice 3.5lb calico on a orange sculpin right off the bat. My buddy wisely moved the boat near some cattle boats that were heavily chumming bait. We got into several nice sized ones for a few hours. Lost some big ones when our lines got wrapped up on the prevalent lobster rigs out there. Choppy and big sets out there but was still fishable.

    Love them Bonito on the fly! One of my favorite fishing trips ever was out at Clemente, me on the bow of the skiff throwing an 8 weight and catching bonito cruising through. Very fun to catch on a fly rod...

    I would rather catch bonito on the fly than salmon. Lots of fun. Great eating when fresh. Good to see you got out on the water again.
