Hit the Coronado Islands for the first time on my own boat. Rough leaving the Pt Loma channel in the am, short period swell meant we had to throttle down to 12kts or so.

Finally made it down closer to 8, worked the middle grounds, trolled south between South Island and the tuna pens with a rapala surface x rap. Wrapped all the way around South Island and hit up the middle grounds, pukey point, nothing. The sport boats showed up in the area and our hopes picked up but still no luck. Left around 130. I saw the San Diego hit 39 YT. What a great captain. He burned a ton of fuel and really worked for it. Hats off to him.

I’ll keep at it and get them one day. Gold luck out there

    I went to catalina the same day and that wind made for a very wet crossing. Didnt remember seeing it in the report either.

    Dang, you just missed the afternoon bite. 13 yt for the three on our private boat. 5 a piece for my friends, I only managed 3, despite the same lure, size, and presentation.
    Yeah we had heard that they bit in the afternoon on the previous few days but unfortunately we had obligations back home. Congrats on your YT. Would you shoot me a Pm with where they hit? Thanks
