Headed out for some rockfishing; a first in La Jolla for me. I'm a bit old school (i.e. - cheap) so no electronics, and naive apparently as I figured I'd punch my way out to deep water and drift in limiting out along the way . Using cut squid I caught a number of tiny to small whitefish but nothing worth keeping. Was visited by a group of grey whales which made the trip special but no bueno on my fishing.

No lobster pots to mark any rock piles along the way? Thanks for the report

Idiot me, really. I have heard that advice before and even got it again from a couple dudes on the beach when I launched. I saw pots, thought about it and kept paddling with the mindset the deeper the better. Not the case!

Yea without a fish finder it can be difficult to find fish drifting around in deep water. I havenít had a finder for awhile now. The lobster pots really help as well as just fishing the kelp line. When the kelp is dense enough I like to grab a handful and put it under my leg to anchor myself down while I fish for bass or rockfish.

Good to hear your report. Always test the ff the night before, and if it is not working, I don't go.
