    Hey guys, I’ll make it short and sweet today…

    Been itching to get out there again and hope to get some dorado or tuna but weather has been making it a pain this week.

    Considered going Friday but my usual crew wasn’t available so Cody decided to jump onboard for the somewhat long run down south past upper hidden.

    From the canyon down to 371 and 425 things looked plenty fishy but nothing materialized so we kept going….

    Got down below the 32 line and decided to run east and try to find better water…. Then heard on radio about a wide open dorado paddy at 2/26… we were only 4 miles away so decided to check it out.

    Glad we did because we had fun pulling on dorado.

    Didn’t take long before it became super crowded so we split and continued on our east heading and sure enough found another paddy with dorado.

    Enough for us to pull on a few more and call it a day.

    Thanks to the skipper for initial call in!

    Another fun day on the water with Cody and my dad and good grade dorado.

    Way to make the run. My open days to fish the past few weeks have had wind on it, or more than I like. I’m such a fair weather fisherman…Aka “pussy” as my boat partner would call it. Did you guys see in tuna or hear of any further south?

    I’m right there with ya mostly with weather…. Do my best to pick only decent weather days too but this year it seems like the number of epic weather was only about 10% of the days at most... so we've been forced to get out there more even in not perfect conditions.

    No real sign of tuna...at all. That was a slight bummer.

    I'm the same way - fair weather fisherman. I was planning on hooking up with Cole/Cody - but crawled out of bed, checked the weather (wind), and crawled back in :p:.

    Great pics again Cole and nice shot of your clodhoppers Cody!

    Isn't that a piece of fold down furniture on the stern for sitting?

    It is!

    But nothing beats that beanbag!

    Best seat in the house for our guest of honor haha.

    I bet having Cody looking back at the shit you passed was strategic.

    I can just see him peeking over the rail saying, " hey Cole . . . you just passed another foamer/paddy"

    :rofl:
