Planned to go to the 371 / Hidden bank area today with my buddy Don (azfishhunter) and another guy. Headed out of mission bay at 5:30am with a full scoop of amazing sardines.

On our way we came across one of the largest kelp pattys I’ve seen with birds working on top between the 302 area and the Coronado Canyon. Dropped two live baits and threw a surface iron and instant triple hook up of smaller yellowtail. Did that for about 30 minutes until a defiance 22 pilothouse came up and drove right onto the patty 🤦🏻‍♂️ Bite immediately shut off.

Weather was definitely not what was expected and we got a really bad condition report for the 371 on the radio so we decided not to head there. Instead, we stopped by our deep drop honey hole on our way back in for rockfish including a 12lb-er that was double the size of the little yellows!!

Back to the marina before noon with 12 yellowtail and 17 rockfish. We really wanted to get on those bluefin but still not a bad Thursday. Planning on heading out Sunday and will update again.

    Saw them getting bait early yesterday in mission bay. Next time post a picture of the boat so they can learn how to properly fish patties. I think we heard you guys give out numbers on that patty yesterday. Nice work. We fished LJ due to the weather.

    Let us know how the Big Cod tasted. Its not a red, its a Mexican Rockfish and they taste just like Salmon Grouper smell after a long day in a gunny sack. Hopefully one of the others took it home. Otherwise that's a nice haul of fish you have congrats and Thanks for the Report!

    You know what I might be wrong - AGAIN!
    I just checked out the DFW Reg Book and the Vermillion Profile looks exactly like your big cod; if it tastes great then it was a Red, if it tastes like shit then it was a Mexican and no I'm not a Racist!

    The big one tasted good! Very flakey, mild white meat like any other red. Definitely wasn’t softer or smellier like Boccaccio usually is 👍🏼
