Figured I’d throw out some late season intel if anyone is trying to sneak in a late run. Who knows maybe this will go on into October too.

46.37x125.14
46.37x125.27

Saw more jumpers yesterday at these locations than all the jumpers I’ve ever seen in my life all put together. I mean jumpers as far as the eye could see. Not the most chewy fish but they are there and was heating up in the afternoon when we pulled the plug and hammered down back to the harbor.

We plugged the fish boxes and kill bags, ran out of room and ice on Saturday at 41 over 15. Like you said... more jumpers than I've seen in a very long time. Bait and trolled swim baits were the ticket.

30 to 35 x 58 to 02 was good Saturday too. 27 fer 3 of us. Dont think you could wrong on Saturday as long as you went SW. I did hear a report of "1" from a guy that ran straight west.

23 bait, 4 swim bait fish. And the last 3 troll fish came at 2pm, prior to that we had only 1 troll fish. Did not get them to touch a clone all day.

The swim bait gets more fish per capita than anything else we run

Like m105580 said, I like those eels. Maybe one day I’ll run a 9-eel spread and see how that works out.
what color are you getting bit on? I have several of them and run them occasionally but haven't had any action on them yet.

I'm an eels only guy too. They get picky on the eels and will bite certain colors and sizes each day. Saturday was med blues only. Wouldnt touch green.

So I’m still holding out a little hope for a Saturday run. Any numbers from today? Im hoping they are so far north east of the last report you pretty much catch them in the harbor
