Me, my dad, and two friends went out on a skiff on sunday we jigged up some anchovy and got on the water by 7;30 and went out about 200 feet south of the mile boy and doped anchor.The water was pretty calm and right away I started getting rock fish then a shaker ling and my dad got a small ray and rock fish and dave and Dillon got nada then we went back at 11:45 and had lunch acaught some more bait then went back out at 1:00 and it was windy and there were 4ft swells but that did not stop us. We dropped anchor 40ft south of the mile buoy and we still drifted so we kept the anchor down and slowly drifted and I got a few rockfish and my dad got 1 rockfish and so did dillon then after the swells got bigger we went back at 3:00. All fish caught on fresh dead anchovy.

Thanks for the update. I wish all hell would break loose somewhere. My boat is starting to think it is a planter. :'(
