Launched off the beach around 4:30 am in search of live bait. Was unsuccessful at finding live bait, so headed out for a prolonged session of vertical jigging.
At first, the current was strong....about 2kts Nth in 200ft of water, but by 10 am, the current died to less than half a knot Nth in 200ft of water. Fishing for Little Tunny was consistent and even had a doubleheader release.
I put out a little tunny strip in hopes of finding a mahi, but instead hooked a nice yellowtail snapper which I had to share with the taxman:(
I also found a few king mackerel for 2 bit off jigs, 2 bit off hooks, and 2 landed fish. I released the smaller one.
By 1pm, the afternoon showers were building so I headed for the beach.
