We departed today on our Newell 10 day trip. We have a gorgeous load of bait, nice weather and good company. We are heading down the line while waiting to see where the fleet is all going to be in a couple of days. Prospects sound fairly good in several areas, although conditions at Alijos sound like they are taking a turn for the worse. We plan to spend tommorrow rigging tackle and enjoying the weather while steaming south. We are hoping for reports of fish biting in multiple locations tommorow!
