Headed out with my buddy Matt on my boat yesterday with the focus of finding dorado in this freakishly warm water we have. Started at the 267 where we had 75.5 degree water and the feathers in when one went zing around 8:30. First one on the boat for the day. Boxed the area for no more. Picked em up and headed out to the 209 where there was some breezing fish so we put the madmacs in and trolled about 2 miles shy of the 209. Wind was starting to pick up so we slid up to the 277 where there was a solid puddling group of fish, worked that area for awhile and decided to head into the 14. Saw a great paddy just inside the slide that had a bunch of dorado on it. Tried feathers, mini colt snipers, chunking, live bait, surface lures, etc. wouldn’t eat. So we trolled the feathers at 7.5knts towards the 14. Half way there we decided to stop and pull in the trollers because I hadn’t seen anything on the meter or surface. As soon as we shut down the boat a very large school of fish decided to go full nat geo 30 feet unfront of the boat. And these were big models. 100-150lb bluefin going full launch. We didn’t have the right gear setup so I quickly through a popper on my spinner and launched it right into the middle. A big boy launched out of the water and missed it. Probably a good thing because I had 40lb on that reel. Had 2 shots at the school and they took off. Threw the madmacs back out and trolled from outside the 14 all the way back to Newport. Was pretty damn western in the 18, but all in all great day.
