Headed out of SD with decent bait, smallish sardines. Straight to the 181 and about 6 miles shy found some bird schools picking at large bait balls and a found a few kelps with no visitors. Kept going to the 181 with the trollers out for nada except more large bait balls breezing on the surface with nothing under them. Turn back toward the 182 and more of the same, scattered kelps, birds here and there and large bait balls, no fish. Wash rinse repeat to the 302. Headed back towards the barn found 3 paddies strung together with hundreds of small lockjawed Dorado. Fished them for 45 mins for nothing.

Water was 72 ish most of the day, seas and wind were very cooperative.

Next time.

Thanks for the report Kingfisher. Similar outcome for us yesterday and sounds like we were in your general area. We did get into YF and BFT for a few hours but couldn’t get a damn bite. Frustrating.
