We also were at the 277 for most of the day saw a limited flurry of boils next to the Fury when we were close to them. But unlike last week no love. We saw no biters anywhere and heard of only 1 boat with 3 fish.

All my years of fishing fresh and saltwater I have had very little luck fishing a Santa Ana condition with high pressure
over the region. The ocean lays down but so do the fish. I have experienced this so many times and twice this season alone. I knew I should have stayed home but just couldn't.

Keep on trying. You will get them. I had completely opposite results on these conditions. Ill post report soon. It was wfo fishing on larger grade yft.

Just gotta keep looking for different schools and find that one that is willing to bite.

I have logged many years of fishing high pressure systems from Castaic to Vail to multiple ocean locations and always the same this has been since the 1970's. Years when I fished every week of the year no matter what, rain or shine. The best days were the day before a storm and pressure dropping.
This year alone we were on the Intrepid anchored for 2 days at SCI the first day fish on most of the day. The second high pressure glass like conditions no current
only a few fish. Yesterday the same spot same everything except a better fisherman with me, nada. But a beautiful day on the pond. The problem was I knew and expected it but the week before was too good to stay home.

Settled high pressure isn't the issue. You need to get away from the fleet. That batch of fish has been hammered for a month and just hasn't bit well. Best days are 3 or 4 fish. I agree a little wind can make it better but these fish have chewed just as well in high pressure. My best days this year have all been in the middle of a high pressure ridge.

Get away from the fleet. Look at the conditions that are in that area then find them elsewhere and you'll find fish away from everyone that will bite.

Sometimes you're the pigeon... sometimes you're the statue.

Keep at it. Any day out there with friends is worth it.

I respectfully disagree. And spent hours away from the fleet.
I respectfully hate all of you because I dragged my boat all the way from COLORADO and met a cold front that pushed everything to the 181 and I was docked in Dana point

:D

Fish are indeed being caught in the high pressure. I know it's true because I seen it with my own eyes on the Internet! LOL
