Went out 7/30 on my buddy's boss' boat. We picked up a scoop of 4-6" dines and headed out to the 209 at about 1 AM: slept for a bit and then got up at grey light. We found a really nice BFT foamer, motored up slowly and let them have it with flat falls, poppers, and dines. No love. They stayed up long enough to get 3 casts into the middle of the school until a boat came from the other side and sent them down. Headed to 181 area and found a nice paddy holding small dodo with lockjaw. Headed back up to the 209 area. We managed to get on one more nice foamer and again no love. 209 was a zoo with boats chasing each other all over the place. We got tired of that so headed north along the temp break to the 277 and then all the way to the east end of cat. We caught a few calicos and fed sardines to the sea lions at cat. Headed in now, about 5 miles from Newport. Good luck out there-- fish are there, just off the bite for us today. 50-100+ lb BFT. What worked: nothing. What didn't: flat falls, colt sniper, sardines, poppers.
