    Hey Guys,

    This is a late report for Sunday. (Been out working a two day since.) Made a run up the coast to check a few spots with a buddy of mine. Fished a dozen spots from 100'-240' with mixed results. Ended with limits of red and coppers as well as a nice ling and a huge whitefish. (Camera got left at home somehow.) Was not impressed with the grade of fish over all. The biggest red was 5-6lbs, most where 2-4lbs.

    Was only able to fish for 3 hours before the wind filled in and chased us away. Between Refugio and Goleta is got down right nasty. Swell was 7-8' and winds gusting to 20 plus knots. Had a few big breaks try to pitch us side ways. Nastiest stuff I have had my Parker out in but she handled it well.

    I do have an official complaint to address......

    (The official complaint has been addressed and resolved via a Private Message. I no longer wish to share the story. No hard feelings!)

    Nice day of fishing....

    Ive seen it all the last 2 seasons....cant believe the lack of etiquette out there!!

    Cant even count how many times, people pulled up to 20-30 feet away at greylight simply to ask...."any biters"?? ........ Idiots!!! Use your VHF and let me ignore you that way... No need to pull up to a boat for any reason unless your bros and got called in for bait....

    Cool thanks for the report Nick. Do you have a temp guage, would be stoked to know the temp. That wind can hoot on the Gaviota coast. Rotten eggs are good communicators.

    The water up above was mostly 56-57 degrees.

    Did take a few Hali drifts as we retreated but no biters.

    7-8' swells and 20 knots on the Gaviota coast is nasty! Glad you got some biters to stock the freezer and the hali drift report is appreciated.

    What made it extremely difficult was the residual wind chop from the 20-25kt Nor Easterlies the day before and the Nor Westerly over night. Luck-fully the period was 15 seconds. If is was shorter we would have been hurting. The 5-10kt forecast I read was more than wrong!!!
