A KING'S RANSOM FISHING IN REDONDO BEACH STILL

AMONG THE BEST.


Sunday Morning (TBS TV series)
Rocky Point owner Dick Acker says that Redondo Canyon, an underwater trench that brings
nutrient-rich water from the Catalina Channel, is another reason for the excellent fishing at King's
Harbor. The nutrients bring bait, and the bait brings the bonito.

If you're conventional-gear fishing, Acker suggests using light spinning tackle with 10-pound test or
less. Lures that produce bonito include small ``Crocodiles'' in blue and white or green and white.

To avoid battling the locals for your fish, try fishing away from the usual spots near the bait dock, as
the sea lions know them too. Frank Selby of His and Hers Flyfishing suggests that when you hook a
bonito, let it run for at least 15 seconds. He says the vibrations of a hooked bonito alert the sea lions
if you don't let it run first.

Chumming is the operative word if you're fly-fishing the ocean. Unlike your favorite trout stream,
where you pretty much can find a fish once you've learned to read their holding spots, the ocean is a
big place and fish move around. Tossing some bait can manufacture a hatch of fish, and bring them
closer to the surface.
``You can fish with live bait,'' Acker said. ``We encourage catch and release and provide single
hooks with lures we sell. We're happy to provide single hooks free to any anglers who want to
convert their treble hooks to a more safe and fish-friendly means of angling. Luhr-Jensen now packs
a single hook with their lures - something we appreciate. You can catch more and release them
faster if you use a single hook.''
If you're 16 or over you will need a California fishing license with an ocean-enhancement stamp to
fish at King's Harbor. Rocky Point sells day licenses only. Skiff rentals at Rocky Point are $45 for a
half-day, or $65 for a 7 a.m.-4 p.m. full-day plus a $10 deposit. Bait is $15 for a half scoop, $20 for a
full scoop. They also will rent you a kayak or arrange a guided fishing trip.

Anchovies are the prime diet for bonito. They will eat a sardine but prefer anchovies. Said Acker:
``All the stars are aligning for the bonito right now. The power plant is on line, we're into the
anchovies cycle, and there are more restrictions on commercial near-shore fishing.''
``The fish typically hold at 8 to 12 feet unless they're coming up to work some bait,'' Acker said.
``The trick is to get the fly at the right depth and keep it there for the longest time possible.
Anticorrosion saltwater construction on your reel is a good idea, as is a good drag system, as larger
fish will put you into your backing. I recommend a 6- to 7-foot, 10-pound leader. If you don't get hit,
go down as far as 6 pound but don't fish with less then a 7-weight rod. You can beat the fish with a
6-weight but you won't beat the sea lions.''

But the feature fish at King's Harbor are the bonito. These small but feisty members of the tuna
family thrive in California's coastal waters. Bonito grow rapidly when young. At one year they
average 18 to 20 inches and weigh about 4 pounds. At 2 years, they've grown to 25 inches and 8
pounds. After that, growth slows down. The California all-tackle record bonito is a 22-pounder
caught at Malibu Cove in 1978.

for wild ocean fish and almost be guaranteed to catch one.

skiffs were concentrated here; most were families fishing live bait. Acker says the skiffs will hold
three adults or two adults and two kids. They were designed for this job, and have a minimum of
projections to catch a line. Even so, Acker suggests bringing a towel to cover up your gear and have
a place to strip a fly line. Or you can do what we did; bring a 5-gallon plastic bucket to strip line into.
