Headed out of Oxnard at 5am. Stopped and picked up a scoop of chovies at cisco's in case we could not make squid. Headed to chinese in hopes the squid were still around. Jigged a tank full rather quickly and set up on the bottom. Saw one boat land a yellow and not much else. The mackerel is very thick and was becoming a bit frustrating keeping a bait in the water. We decided to head to yellowbanks and fish there. Last week we pulled a nice halibut and yellowtail there and saw some free swimming wsb. The fog was thick, I just installed a new garmin xhd and it was bad ass picking up everything. As we are rounding the corner it is lit up with boats. It is full on barracuda with a mix of bonita. Lot's of fun on the iron, a fish a cast. Played with them for a while and did some halibut drifts before calling it a day. Nice smooth run in. Did buy a magma grill. I can't believe I been boating so long without one. Deff recommend!
