Had to call in sick yesterday after hearing all the Seabass reports from Monday. Got a spot on the Pacific Eagle out of Ventura landing on a full day Seabass special. We left at 4am and joined the fleet around 7:30, the seiner Emerald Sea gave us to full tanks of squid and also supplied many other boats with all the squid you wanted at no charge. Well today was my day, I was first to hook up and put one on the deck, and also the second one and then the third one. All these before anyone else was even bit. It didn't end the I got 1 more barely legal white sea bass and a 20lb Halibut before we called it a day. Best day one the water that I have had in many years for white sea bass.
