    Launched early with my Brother and two boys and made it abeam Pt. Loma by 0600 with great dines from EB. Pressed out toward the 302, but stopped on a tiny paddy just on the western edge of the 9-mile bank where we instantaneously got picked by a nice sized bull and 6 others before it shut down around 0900. Everyone got some fish there -- some two at a time.

    Continued west and stopped on another dinky paddy where we found some YTs to go with the Dodos. Three out of four of our best fish came from this shrubbery.

    Water temps started out around 74 deg but by the time we left we saw 78.2 deg. All fish were caught off lively bait (some slow trolled at idle) no closer than 50yds off the paddy. Awesome conditions and the fish worked the boys over so they spent most of the day snoozing. Very memorable for all.

    Final count 8 Dodos (1 Rel) and 3 Yt

    Having problems with pics. Will try again manana.

    Edited: Okay here's the pics as promised...

    Forgot to mention: We were using 30 lb flouro as well. Snapped our net in half too early on -- almost lost that fish because of it. Took two hours to clean them all when we got back. Home at 2200 after a long day.

    My 8 year old (who designated himself our resident photographer) took it. I thought that he did a great job too, especially, since the last outing -- when he took great pictures of the catch but chopped our heads off or he took what would have been a frameable pic of a dodo in the water save for the camera strap in front of it. You gotta love digital photography, because you can't waste film.

    Sorry I had to wait until I got home and it took me a while to find it. This is the picture that could have been a contender... minus the camera strap.

    The second one might still work

    Likewise Mike, and thanks. Always a pleasure. You gotta a great kid there -- soon I expect to see pics of him bringing monsters his size or better over the rail... and he should have grabbed one preferrably before it was filleted -- I was worn out. :_shopping Glad to see that you got into some too this weekend.

    Take care and we'll see you out at the dock again soon I'm sure. Mike
