    Jumbo's at the 43 9/9

    Way under-gunned to say the least... 5 miles NW of the 43 was something to see this morning. 200+ pound BFT chasing flying fish everywhere you looked. Bellyfloppin' like Shamu, putting on a great show! Wasn't geared up for this size fish, but tried trolling a couple large Nomad lures on 60# -...

    Offshore action 8/31

    Find the right kelp and it's game-on. Tag teamed this morning with Cody "the kelp magnet" for one stop shopping on micro-yellowtail and smaller grade dorado. Pretty much all you wanted... Closer to the bottom of the 302 found a dink paddy and got a couple nicer grade yellowtail and more small...

    Upper Hidden Bank 8/20

    SUCKED! Not much happening at the Islands this morning and bailed early. Found a kelp just outside the 101, in shit green water, and put two 10# yellowtail in the boat. Decided to keep heading out and found clean blue 74 degree water below the 425. I ended up at the UHB and found a tiny kelp...

    BFT at SKR 8/18

    Decent bluefin action at the Islands this morning. Quite a bit of 15-25 pound bluefin up crashing around early. Run and gun bird school fishing - kept things interesting. Unlike what's been the norm offshore lately, these fish were actually keyed in on the sardines. Also picked up a few 12...

    8/2 Humble Pie

    Terns everywhere, 30+ pound tuna up under them, outstanding 'dines for bait, tuna blowing up on the chum right behind the boat, 20# stick with #1 light wire hook, bait right in the middle of the boils - for NADA! Threw everything at 'em, flyline, sinker rig, poppers, stick bait, Tady 45's, Colt...

    371 7/16 triple

    Just short of the 371 early morning kelp produced a triple header - bluefin, yellowtail, and dorado, all on bait. Lot's of tuna at the 371, but you need tons of bait to keep them at your boat. Watched Grom up-close on the Sauerfish annihilate the bluefin - they literally stayed right under his...

    BFT NW 230 6/25

    Lots of big tuna blowing up this morning at greylight. They were up top putting on a pretty good display when I slid into one at 22 over 48. The fishfinder lit up. Not paying attention, I grabbed a 30# stick and flylined a bait and stuck the rod in the rod holder. I pinned a dean on my 60#...

    Offshore 226/302 6/22

    Found a jumbo kelp first thing in the morning, in flat calm weather, at 27 over 36 for one stop shopping on good grade of yellowtail. We cruised around the high spots after that and it was pretty much dead. Ended up back at the same paddy and picked a few more yellows off it - catch and...

    Rockpile and SKR 6/18

    Was planning on running offshore, but had a quick change of plans once we got out of the bay. Bouncy and windy - no bueno at 4am... Plan B, hit the islands. Started at o'dark thirty at the middle grounds with very little signal. Shot down to the rockpile and put one on the boat pretty quick...

    Coronado's 6/15

    Started out early at the 178 heading down outside the 9. Found the ponies, bait, and a shit load of terns - thought it would be game on. Worked them for over an hour without any love. Finally had to bail on 'em - sucked. Ended up at Pukey Point, not much happening there. Worked down the weather...

    Put a couple decent yellowfin in the boat early today on a nice size kelp at 05 over 29. I had them boiling in the corner on the chum and was able pick the two off on bait. There was a good amount of tuna around and under the boat, but getting them to eat anything with a hook in it proved a bit...

    Tons of bluefin out there today, little butterballs and some bigger models… Started out solo above the 226, around 7 this morning playing wack-a-mole with the breezing bluefin (for whatever reason, they weren’t interested in the poppers or colt sniper). Around 8, they started foaming up pretty...

    Offshore/Islands report 9/12

    Plenty of macs in SD bay and some better sized sardines from the receiver was a good start to the morning. Flat calm, zero wind pretty much all day, with the sun beaming through early - sweet. About 7 miles west of North Island, found the right kelp loaded with dorado. Took my fill, called...

    Coronado Islands 9/9

    Slow day today for me. A bit tougher making macs in the morning, and downhill from there. Heavy fog and the water at the Islands dropped to a chilly 68 degrees at SKR, was a bit warmer at North Island, and off colored everywhere. A big difference from earlier this week for sure! Had the...

    Coronado Islands 9/3

    Made macs pretty quick and was sitting at 5 minute kelp at grey light. Started slow trolling and metering fish right out of the gate. Five minutes later, hook-up... While I'm fighting what ended up being a decent yellow, the other rod in the rod holder goes off. Sweet, double... Got the...

    Coronado Islands 8/31

    Good fishing at the Islands today. Started early at SKR with a double on smaller grade bluefin. Ended up putting a few good grade yellows on over the next couple hours. Kind of died off, not much life and blank screen on the fish finder. Bolted up to the Middle Grounds to the parking lot...

    Coronado Islands 8/28

    Loaded up the bait tank with macs pretty quick this morning and made the Islands at grey light. Not much happening for the first hour up around the ribbon kelp, so I did a little reconnaissance down around 5 minute kelp /SKR. Right between the two areas, the fish finder lights up with the...

    Got a fat one 7/19

    Lost a big one early and a few hours later pulled this slug over the side. No real secret where all the boats and fish are. Pretty fun day, lots of breezing fish and a few foamers early in the morning, and pretty much heavy meter marks all day long - kept things interesting.

    Flat calm weather this morning. First guys on the spot down below south island early paid off. We had limits by the time the crowd showed up.

    Good YT fishing at the Islands today 6/3

    Did the (very) rare weekend thing - man there were a TON of boats at the islands today! Stopped on some good meter marks in about 80' of water, threw out some chum, and had 'em boiling up behind the boat in short order - pretty cool to see! Pretty much full speed with all the fish coming on...

    First trip out on the new 23′ Maritime went smoothly today. Started at the 371 and ended down below the 425 on a decent sized paddy that had a ton of small 8-10 pound yellowtail on it. Didn’t take long to limit out on these little suckers – but it did take quite a bit of searching to find a...

    Between the 101 and the 425 - tons of nice kelps with one MONSTER that had tuna and dorado under it. But tuna being tuna, couldn't get them to take a hooked bait - which wasn't a problem with the dorado that charged the boat. Ended up limiting pretty quickly on better grade fish. Pointed the...

    Plan B - 9/14

    Plan A was to load the boat at the 371 this morning - which was a bust. Plan B was to head to the Islands and boat some yellowtail - mission accomplished. Four better grade fish at Keyhole in 80' of water, slow trolled baits did the job.
