We left Sunset Aquatic Marina 5 PM and take 2 scoop live squid at Nacho bait headed to 81 trying to target some bluefin because of some report in last week there. Finally get there around 8PM but can't stay there though the night because the swell keep throwing hard. I saw the lights of 30-40 boats around the 81 but I want to leave because some of my friends started to feed the bluefin ;) . We anchor in Pyramid Cove until morning and I starting fishing around Pyramid cove for yellowtail at 7AM . The fishing very slow in early morning but more and more action in afternoon. Mostly yellowtail 6-15 lbs, we got a nice halibut. A charter boat fished right next to me and leave with nothing but I keep changing the position around the spot and keep it near the kelp maybe that help?

We finish at 12PM and leave to Catalina for some diesel because only got 1/3 tank left.
Great fun day all around. Thanks for reading !!

I was on the Amigo, we left SCI do to poor conditions. Almost zero current, cooler water temps and very little response to chum. Tried Pyramid and up the line to purse sein on the lee side. Headed southwest to pound the bluefin, they didnt really cooperate until the night bite. Fish 20-50lbs, bit the sinker, flat falls, stick baits and knife jigs.

First offshore on my new 40 sport fish. I bring 277/400 gallons and only have 120 left at SCI so I need 60 more at Catalina to get back. They are pricy $5.25/gallon.
Next trip will be full tank for sure.
