    Ran south yesterday to flew the kite and show some friends from Quebec what California fishing has been like the past few years.

    Plan worked out. 185# on the scale at Dana and Five Star.

    • 302: Nice water and some bird sign, no fish. 62*
    • 371: one dry kelp
    • W of 371 got the fish. 63* water clean and beautiful. Marked fish at 150-200' but no sign on the surface. Trolled a Yummy on the kite. Bit within 30 min.
    • 425: 63 - some birds, dolphin and whale. Some decent marks down deep
    • W of South island. LOTS of tuna pens being towed around. At least 12 of the big boats out there, careful if running south.
    • North Island: 63 and cleaning up. Tons of red crab with bass flipping on them at Pukey. Cool to watch, but they wanted nothing to do with surface iron or live bait.
    • Off of North Island, lots of fast moving bonito schools with terns on them. - Looks like the Islands are ready to start firing off here pretty quick
    Fingers crossed the wind this weekend doesn't mess things up.

    Way to show your Canadian friends a good time. Great report. Let's hope all the boat traffic this weekend doesn't scare the tuna away.
