The winter weather has been terrible with few weather windows to make it out. Slick calm seas all day made excellent conditions with a light current. The blueline tile fishing was good but still had to pick through some dog sharks. We tried for golden tile but the dog sharks got to our baits first so didn't catch any goldens. We did get our limit of blueline tiles up to 12 pounds filling the box. Great day offshore. As the waters warm with this warm weather we've been having, expect these dog sharks will be moving out of our waters soon. The best time to deep drop (in my opinion) is just after the dogs move out. The competition for food in the winter is intense with so many dog sharks around so once the dogs are gone, the bottom fishing is excellent as the resident fish are hungry after a hard winter of little food.
