O'neill Forbay in San Luis, CA...CHECK #12
Ever since I've been little I've been fishing here, and I didn't really keep up with the season this year. But I went out today to test the waters out...and nothing at check #12! I remember the good ol' day's where there is like 20 people lined up against the fence line. Now it seems there isn't enough room because the fish don't bite there. The gates were closed, but the water was still turbulating and violent. Check #12 is highly dependent on whether those gates are open or not. If they aren't, you pretty much have to call it a day. But that's because that's really all I have fished at Oneill. I tried fishing under the highway bridge and was able to bring home a keeper. Anyone else recommend any spots to fish off the bank on the Oneill side? Check #12 isn't doing any justice. Btw, tried it all at check #12, blood worms, pile worms, nightcrawlers, anchovies. This was about 8-9am, sunny low wind, gates closed, but still agressive waters.
