I've found the old school dropper loop keeps the bait and weight separated better than the 3 way swivel.

As for trap hooks, many good halibut anglers swear by them. But I've found traps get...

That is a dilemma. From your description the baits may have been in the little cove to avoid being swept away by the current.
And looking relaxed isn't a good sign.

Great recommendation Bob.

Ya, you may be over thinking it.
Like others said, if you wait for ideal you might never fish.

I believe north Coronado Island is 15-18 miles from point Loma. Not sure what it is from Playas Tijuana. Nados can be a tough windy place.

That sucks. It's a crime too.
Lobster hooping and sea bass bites bring out the absolute worst in people. Between getting almost run over by boats and confronted by security I'm pretty much done...

It's not the freshest Intel cause I was out last Saturday but I could not make bait. I don't have a FF but shadowed along with some one who did. It didn't help.

Changing out a treble to a single on a surface iron can change the action. But on heavy irons it's not usually noticeable.

Singles are easier on the fish for C&R.
Trebles are safer for you if...

That current from the NW is typically the best condition for the fish to bite. But like people are finding, it can be exhausting. And hooking and fighting a fish can lose you a 1/4 mile or more.
