Kelp-paddy hopping anyone?
It's been a crazy season for offshore anglers, who began catching albacore and now are finding a tropical smorgasbord beneath the kelp paddies: albacore, dorado, yellowtail and some yellowfin tuna.
If you'd like to maximize your success — and get the most out of the money you're shelling out for these overnight trips — you might want to visit the National Sports Grill in Torrance at 7 p.m. Aug. 7. Capt. Art Taylor of the Searcher will discuss tackle tips and give demonstrations. Taylor also will discuss the great white shark cage-diving operation at Guadalupe Island.
