LA harbor (aka the sewer)

Decided to take the kayaks up with me while I attended the Fred Hall show up in Long Beach, this past weekend. Plan was to fish LA Harbor in the morning, then head off to Fred Hall for the rest of the afternoon. I was excited at the prospect of fishing new waters, especially one that has pumped out nice sized halibut! Friday afternoon, I loaded the kayaks up and we hit the road.



Bright and early the next morning, we launched out of Cabrillo Beach Boat launch. The girlfriend wanted wanted to tag along too, so I got a photographer for this session! I placed myself in the Hi seat position of my Cuda 14, which gave for a comfortable session throughout.





Flat, calm conditions for the morning. Tides were expected to be outgoing until 10ish. This being my first time here, I had a plan to hit the bait barge, pick up some bait, then drift outwards to the mouth of the harbor with the tides. Following the channel ledges and the submerged dike, in hopes of some big fish. Ended the day with a nice legal sand bass, 1 legal/3 short halibut, and tons of lizards. All fish were released to fight another day! Some pics of my session:











The infamous "sewer" provided a nice change of pace and scenery, and hope to fish it again!

They were loading their sniper rifles. You moved off the spot just in time if nothing flew over your bow.

We were out there Sunday, we got to see an awesome sunrise, probably one of the best I've seen in a while, I ended up with two sandbass(one over 20") both were released, a 12" lizard fish and a lot of sun.

Glad you got on some butts even if they were the little ones, I ended up with a butt skunk
