Well done.  Headed down Tuesday hoping they are still there.  Looks like they've set up in normal spring pattern

Tuesday looks like a great day to be out.  That's a great solo box.  Nice job.

Fished Saturday morning. 

4/5 in 70-90 ft water. 1 19.5lb King, 2 12lb Kings and 1 Laker. Lost the 5th a King at the back of the boat.

Carmel dolphin, meat, and a orange/blue/green spoon took the hits. 30-40 feet down was the depth.

Speed 2.5-2.7 at the ball

It was 48 at the surface and 45 at the ball. With the wind out of the east Saturday afternoon I'm sure it probably pushed the warmer water around
