SQUID HATCH OFF SAN ONOFRE

Private boaters had a field day this past weekend along the San Onofre coast, after a nice hatch of squid apparently attracted schools of white seabass, yellowtail and halibut. They all were on the bite this past weekend, with seabass to 50 pounds, yellowtail to 40 pounds and halibut into the 30-pound class caught by anglers initially fishing under birds and then moving inshore on spots of fish.
