left mb @ 0430. halfway to the 302 the bait pump takes a shit. all bait is dead. 1/2 hour after trolling the high spot, around 0630 or 0700, jig strike on the b/p feather. saw birds working, boils, and albacore come out of the water. a while later we saw what we thought was a submerged paddy, but it was a bunch of humboldts with their tentacles out of the water...one of the weirdest things i've ever seen. even weirder, the tuna were right there with them, boiling and jumping. worked our way south, found another hotspot just south of the 302. sorry, forgot the #'s but all of our fish were caught w/in 5 or 6 miles off the high spot.
total, 6 in the box, coulda have countless more with live bait. lotsa life out there. thanks platapus and stubby for the heads up with their roports yesterday. pretty bumpy out there.

Good job and thanks for the report. Good call to stay off the humboldt...they are a pain in the ass. Fun to catch, but waste of time compared to tuna! I'd much rather clean the chicken!

hank-yeah, the wind was up all morning, but it got worse later on. pics dont do it justice anyway.
unknown fisherman- that rod is a beast. i reeled one in on it, and it just kicked the shit outta me. pretty heavy and uncomfortable...but my grampa would be proud!

Hey Rex, Great job on the kill. It's good to see another Bruntsch out slaying the chickens. Say hi to your dad for me. You need to get him out there on the rail with ya.
