    Lauchbed from MCRD at 5:15 and got some really crappy 3-4” sardines that all rolled by 10am even in the calm seas. Went to the islands first to pick off some yellows before they head offshore, we got 6 on the boat plus 4 bones and ran out of live bait by 10:30. They will still biting half dead sardines on the slow troll, flat falls and the surface iron. Had a sea lion take one for a run and the 25# line wouldn’t break off so we had to chase the dog down to save my line. Finally came off after pulling hard and getting right over the sea lion. Lost that one.

    Andy and @Kyle farmer did most of the bending - good job boys.

    Next headed offshore for the rest of the day only to find nearly lifeless seas from the 425 (where the water turned green and dropped I 69.5) to 371 to 302 (deep blue and 71.5) to 226 to the Corner back down by the 182 and the North 9 (ended day running around 85 miles). Only found a few small spots of barely crashing fish the entire day. Found a few very large but empty kelps as well by the 302. Left the grounds by 4, which in hindsight was too early and from what I’m hearing today, a day early too.

    Regardless ended with 6 YT and 4 bones. Great weather all day, light winds until S wind picked up on the way in.

    By the time you are reading this report the wide open tuna bite today is likely in full force. “Shoulda been there tomorrow”

    Nice work. Question on rigging the Yo-Zuri minnow, what’s that on the split ring? Looks like maybe to give it more action?

    The Yo-Zuri minnow has great action out of the box. Not sure if this style split ring gives more action (it may!?) but personally I like it for ease of swapping lures. I brought them back from Japan. I found them on eBay for you. Large ones rated for 215#

    Should have been there tomorrow? That's classic. You still can! Nice job on the yellows and the recon mission.

    Nice trip! We swear by these clips.. call them the doohickey, just like the one on your lure http://www.tacticalanglers.com/products.html#powerclips have never lost a fish or had a failure with them and swapping rigs is light speed.. You can get them at tackledirect.

    Largest. I find them easiest to open and swap lures.

    the 50lb have been more than enough for local stuff.. I fish them from 10lb line to 60lb on everything.. even my fresh water bass gear!

    I just use the large ones regardless of target species. Easier to use them.
