I saw the yellowtail bite was good on the SD 3/4 day boats so I booked a trip. All my buddies past on it so I went solo leaving OC about 3:30 am.
I jumped on the Malahini and we went about 20.miles past the Coronados. It was all heavy jigs all day. I ended up with 4 fish in the 20 lb class. The boat had about 75 for 35 anglers. Solid effort by the crew, we got in about 8pm.

Hey Joe, 75 yd top shot so pretty much mono. 7x was the way to go because of the depth and current. I loaned out a 7x Jr of the right color to a guy but it was iffy as the current picked up. A lot of 6x and 4/0's were being used.

I forgot I got one on the Flat fall 200 glow in the dark model. Others using other flat falls didn't get bit.

James the color may be top secret but I will share and disregard the risk. Basically some form of red and orange. Think red crab. I almost forgot to throw them in my tackle box. That was the colors of the day. I went to the local shop and the colors I was using is out of stock, typical

Teddy, pretty much south. It was run and gun fishing looking for schools. When we ran over one the skipper would set up a drift. He and the crew were on it.

Nice report. 4 20# fish on the deep jig is a good day!

I would suspect Cat and SC Islands will be news-makers soon. I compared the open ocean buoys this morning and the water temperatures are about the same, slightly over 61.

Chomp, chomp, chomp...:cow:

Temp is higher at SCI than at the finger right now... Look at the chlorophyll, much cleaner at the bank right now, volume of fish are in the clean water. Look for them to come North as the water clears!
