    Fun day, finesse/pick bite, great weather, water still looks like the bay. 4 yft 18-20#, 1 bft 40# for 4 people. 2 were farmed. All bait fish.

    Detailed:
    Was able to get a spot on a friend’s boat Saturday. Launched at 0400, 1.5 scoops (3-5” dines) at the receiver that stayed lively all day. Light line fishing still, 15-20# floro, #2 & #4 live bait hook worked. Started around the upper hidden bank after passing the fleet. Trolled around for an hour for nothing but saw lots of life. After finding some nice meter marks we drifted and chummed/chunked. Got them to come up and saw them breaking all around the boat for most of the drift. Went 4/6 for the four of us, 18-20# yft. Best part about that is being a lone boat in a very promising area. They just didn’t want to go wide open, likely needed heavy chumming. Tried fishing closer to the fleet but saw a couple sea lions and no one bent, so we kept moving. Got to the 302 around 1400 to find no boats! Our captain landed a nice 40# bft. Checked out a couple of dry paddies and the 9 on our way in but nothing there. Oh ya, no love on the jigs. We tried everything except poppers.
