    Left DPH 4:30 am got a very light half scoop of deans at bait barge. Stopped and made macs as intent was to have pleanty of chunks on hand and only had one bag frozen from last run. Ran out to 209 and 1 of 2 boats at high spot at sun up. Water temp around 67.5 blue. Not much sign on run out. Decided to go with plan B which was south of SCI as was scheduled to close by noon so had a window. . Water temps gradually increased to 68.8 to 69. Roughly 5 miles south of Point saw dolphins and birds working. Got out front, chummed and flylined baits, no love. Several pods in 2 mile area working different directions. Decided to rig up and troll. Went 6 for 10 using cedar plug, xrap, and yozuri working the dolphins, all 20-40 GYFT. We left at noon and decided to work our way back. 209 was dead so blew through. Sat on a couple paddies that were high and dry. 267 had good sign with birds and dolphin. Metered some bait and marked fish so we shut down and chummed and fly lined deans and worked a sniper with no success. Since we already scored earlier we pulled off and hammered it back to the barn. The fish I cleaned all had squid and red crabs in their stomach. Hope this helps. There's still fish out there.

    Great report. Finally someone breaks the silence, thinking about running out tomorrow.

    Was a good trip. If the hot weather holds season should run even longer. Good luck on Saturday!

    40# leader would have probably been the ticket. We were rigged to fish bait with 20# flouro leaders and did not re-rig with heavier. We lost a couple trying to put too much pressure on the fish. Not sure if the light leader improved numer of strikes or not, but later in the game tied directly to my 60# mono topshot. Increased our confidence and landed fish on it but had less strikes. I think that had more to do with tide change, bait and dolphin activity though. Seals ruined one gaff shot and we lost that fish at the boat.

    Next time? Sorry you could not make it. I typically throw an invite at last minute as want to make sure weather and sea state will be favorable.
