   A KING'S RANSOM FISHING IN REDONDO BEACH STILL AMONG THE BEST. Byline: BILL BECHER REDONDO BEACH Redondo Beach (r?d?n`d?), city (1990 pop. 60,167), Los Angeles co., S Calif., onthe Pacific Ocean; inc. 1892. Once a commercial port for Los Angeles, it is a residential and resortcity with a protected harbor and an excellent marina.  - If you catch a fish at King Harbor atRedondo Beach, you'll have to fight the locals for it. The locals being sea lions and brown pelicans. Anglers can have fun catching bonito bonito: see mackerel.bonitoSwift, predaceous schooling fishes (genus Sarda) of the mackerel family (Scombridae).

It was discovered in 1542 by Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, and eventuallybecame part of the Rancho El Conejo land grant by  Fly Fishers. We rented two skiffs, 13-footfiberglass boats with a five-horse outboard stable enough for two fly fishers to stand and cast. Theharbor is very protected, so this is an ideal place to get a taste of saltwater fishing without the risk of chumming up your breakfast if you don't quite have your sea legs sea legspl.n.The ability to adjust one's balance to the motion of a ship, especially in rough seas.sea legsNoun, plInformal .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 abig place and fish move around. Tossing some bait can manufacture a hatch of fish, and bring themcloser to the surface.We stopped at the bait dock and got a scoop of sardines. The rental skiffs are equipped with a plasticbucket punched with holes and surrounded by a collar that floats it next to your boat. It kept our baitalive for the full day of fishing. We fished for calicos in the fog along the seawall seawall: see coastprotection.  and landed a half dozen, up to 3 pounds. The trick seemed to be to cast a sink tip orshooting head parallel to the breakwater breakwater, offshore structure to protect a harbor fromwave energy or deflect currents. When it also serves as a pier, it is called a quay; when covered by aroadway it is called a mole.  and retrieve it with a pause. The bass hide out in the rocks andcouldn't resist the blue and white deceivers we threw at them, striking on the pause.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 theyaverage 18 to 20 inches and weigh about 4 pounds. At 2 years, they've grown to 25 inches and 8pounds. After that, growth slows down. The California all-tackle record bonito is a 22-poundercaught at Malibu Cove in 1978.The configuration of King Harbor makes it a favorite bonito fishing ground. Bonito consume preyequaling about 6 percent of their body weight daily.

Tagging studies have show that the warm-water discharge from electric-generating plants such as the one at Redondo Beach holds the usuallymigratory bonito in the area.Rocky Point owner Dick Acker says that Redondo Canyon, an underwater trench that bringsnutrient-rich water from the Catalina Channel, is another reason for the excellent fishing at King'sHarbor. The nutrients bring bait, and the bait brings the bonito.``We've had squid floating in the harbor, an unusual event during the day,'' says Acker. ``We weregetting 6- or 7-pound bonito then. You get a ball of bait and the bonito crash the bait ball. Anamazing sight.'' As the sun comes out and the weather turns shirtsleeve, we fish closer to the bait dock, a favoritespot. The local sea lions know this too, and patrol the area looking for Looking forIn the context of general equities, this describing a buy interest in which a dealer is asked to offerstock, often involving a capital commitment.

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 havea place to strip a fly line. Or you can do what we did; bring a 5-gallon plastic bucket to strip line into.If you're conventional-gear fishing, Acker suggests using light spinning tackle with 10-pound test orless.

Sink tips will work but you can get further faster with a shooting head. And itstays deeper longer because the running line stays deeper.``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 largerfish 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 a6-weight but you won't beat the sea lions.''The water in the harbor is remarkably clear and we spot the sea lions making passes under our boat.The action heats up at midday, with the families catching mackerel and bonito.
