We headed out to the Coronado islands around 8:00 am. Nice flat seas and sunny.
Got there around 8:30 and it was overcast most of the day. We were searching for yellowtail but didn’t get any. Marked them deep between the middle grounds and north island but couldn’t get them to go.
the Sandiego was out there and we saw them gaff a few but we kept our distance from them and tried to find our own fish.
we ended up fishing the south side of the middle grounds for pretty much wide open calico bass on fly lines deans. Good size fish too. Most over legal size. All fish released. We also would have flurries of wide open Bonita up to 6 lbs on fly line and surface iron. Headed back to decent seas. Big swell but far apart. I wish I could of got a yellow but we had a blast anyway. It was fun watching the bones explode on the surface iron.
