Patrice McGriffin is as excited as the next person, but she shudders a bit at the thought of what the day might bring. "It's pretty out there, but I'm kind of scared because Jaws might come on the boat," she says, flashing a nervous smile while looking out over the ocean, seeing nothing but gray. McGriffin's fears are unfounded, but who can blame her? She's only 11 and, like many others being ferried to the fishing barge near the outer entrance of L.A. Harbor, she has never been on the ocean.

Early summer sportfishing action is under way with barracuda, sand bass and yellowtail providing the bulk of action. Day and twilight party boats fishing from Santa Monica Bay to horseshoe kelp have had the best success. Anglers have been catching full-day limits and boats have been returning to landings ahead of schedule. Yellowtail off Catalina Island and white sea bass action is improving with the return of live squid for bait.

It was a rewarding first-time fishing trip for Nguyen Hon Ling of West Los Angeles. Fishing aboard the Annie B Barge out of Los Angeles Harbor, Ling was catching jack smelt with a barrowed rod and reel. As Ling was reeling in a jack smelt, he had a strong hit. With help from the crew, he reeled the fish up to the surface, where a net was lowered to scoop up a 32-pound halibut. Barge Master Paul Berube said the halibut set an all-time barge record.

With a recommendation looming on whether to ban fishing in spots around the Channel Islands, about 250 fishermen have made a rowdy push to stop such action. At a public forum Wednesday night intended to gather feedback on four scenarios for no-fishing zones--ranging from 8% to 50% of the 1,252-nautical-acre marine sanctuary around the islands--the fishermen arrived in force and made their dissatisfaction known.
