    Went on the Clemente half day boat out of Dana Point which left at 10 am today. The Ortega highway has construction so I left early before it started and fished the little jetty. I caught a small sandbass, two huge jack smelt and a thick round stingray. Then ate breakfast and got on the Clemente.
    The first stop of the day was kind of slow. I didn't get anything on live bait, tried squid on a knocker rig and caught two 12 inch sandbass.
    The second stop was by far the longest and most productive. Using the same rig I caught a huge rock wrasse. Then in a 15 minute time, I caught 3 legal sheepshead, to bad it's not March. Two of them males. Then caught another two 12 inch sandbass
    Then a final really short stop. I was first to catch at spot, a 14 inch calico on a live sardine. Then at the very end of trip caught a huge blue perch, the deckhands called it a piranha.
    I only took a picture of the blue perch on boat, the deckhands were quick and released fish before I had chance to take pics.
