    Default Solo trip on my new boat

    I put my boat in at San Pedro around 9am (note to self get a longer rope). I head outside break wall I start to fish the near the lobster pots looking for sheepshead nothing home so I head north a little ways started fishing the bottom got a nice size sculpin to bad itís not in season so I want to go to the horseshoe kelp I plugged in the coordinates on my fish finder I got there almost around just a little before 1pm I dropped down a whole squid to the bottom got a good hit I set the hook and I bought in a nice size whitefish. It got to windy out there so I head inside the breakwater looking for bass and whatever want to play. Called it a day around 3pm it was good day on the water and on my new boat. I didnít know what I was doing or how to read my fish finder not use to just colors that show the fish instead of fish Symbol. It will take time for me to get use to.

    I couldn't post a video of the dolphins coming next to my boat. No I haven't named it yet but I think I have a good name for it
