    This time of year is will be bottom fish. I've heard there is a mass of squid out there right now and the bite has slowed.

    rockfish is the target this time of year (reds, bocaccio etc). If you're talking the lower 9 then I'd say fish sardines or bounce a jig off the bottom. You're looking at 200'-300' and deeper. Since you're in Mexican waters take a look near pukey point. There have been some YT in the area.

    BTW, you don't need to go that far to bottom fish. There are plenty of areas nearer to mission and PL that have bottom critters. Do some research and it will save you some fuel.

    I'd do some research on some of the artificial reefs in the area. The whistler buoy can hold bottom critters and as well as some other areas off PL.
