    Left the dock at 3am yesterday only to find out I had a fuel problem with the starboard motor. Got back to the slip, fixed the problem & left by 5:45am.

    We decided to split the 181 & 182 and work from there. We had been in the area of 32.49/117.45 and started with a triple on the skips. Then found a couple of paddys for some dorado and Yt's. Then a blind jig strike for a 10lb YFT. Then another paddy for more Yt & dorado, then while working one of the paddys saw breaking fish less than 1/8 mile away. Definately some nice size YFT mixed in with the porpoise. Picked up & trolled & only got 1 12lber.

    BTW all the fish were in 68.3 - 68.5 H2O.

    All in all, some nice weather, & a great bag of fish.

    2 - YFT
    11 - Dorado (1 bull around 25 lbs)
    3 - YT's
    8- skppies

    Nice job Jason. Sounds like a pretty good day. Too bad you're spoiled from the MAW trip. Thanks for the report and the numbers. We're going tomorrow and I've been eyeballing that area on terrafin pretty closely. Appreciate the details.

    Way to go J, got your message. No worries, if you can make it buy the boat I would greatly appreciate it. Won't be able to get down there for a week or so. Checks in the mail pal.

    Nice job Jason, at least your still going out! Everyone seems to stop fishing around late Sep./oct. and that when it flares up usually.
