North San Diego Bay 12/16/17

Launched late, around 10am from Kellogg beach. Zig zagged the north bay and then followed Zuniga jetty till the second to the last tower. The wind was howling and the tide was ripping. Didnít make it out to the point as I was going by myself and I didnít quite feel comfortable. All I was able to catch were three greenbacks trolling an X-Rap. Plastics were not hooking up on anything for me... on the way back I noticed the kelp growing on the rock piles off of North Island in about 10 to 20 feet of water. Thought Iíd drop a Berkeley Gulp Alive swimming mullet and pulled out my first Sculpin in 12 feet of water!

Thatís awesome! I went out of kellog beach for the first time today. Hooked up on a really nice halibut along Zuniga but it got loose before I could get it in the kayak. Never caught a sculpin! Nice work!

Let me know if you want to paddle out at some point. I typically go solo, and Iím the same way, donít want to get too far out with no one else around.

Best!

Thanks. Yeah it can really start moving out there with the sudden shifts in depth, current and wind. Too bad about the halibut. Iíll try to pm you next time I go out! Good luck out there and be safe!

Sweet, I was out there yesterday too, launched from Kellogg as well. I went out past the point to look for the kelp but I guess you can't see it this time of year, unless I missed it. Thought it was going to be a bad day but ended up getting 3 calicos, 5 good size Mack's, 2 yellow fin croaker, and a rockfish. I love fishing out there, can't wait to go back, but I want to launch from OB, I hear it's closer. Let me know if you wanna go sometime

Iíve also heard launching from OB can be a better option, but you have to watch the surf report. It can be calm when you launch, but have some pretty good sets when you return.

Let me know and Iíll gladly paddle out with you.
