Fished the 9 at graylight till 10:30 for nada on 5th trip again on sundays. Guess it's a midweek spot only. No tuna-Hoos,not even a skippy. Going back to coranados next weekend. Anyone know if they're still being aggressive on inspections? My last 2 trips there in july we were checked.

Right there with you today. Nothing up the 9 to La Jolla. Saw a marlin jump and boxed the area but that was as close as I got...

We were out there too. Trolled the upper nine til 11am n decided to fish La Jolla for Ytl n calicos. About a mile out while looking for signs of life we got a blind strike on the large blk n purple marauder. Kept the boat in gear n got him within 40yds then he jumped n broke my 275lb wire harness. We were bummed, especially my friends 16yr old son who was pulling on the wahoo. Note to self, ck ur wire harnesses for frays n rough spots:( Now there's a big wahoo out there dragging around my bnp marauder...lol
Until next time:)

Heard you on the radio about losing marauder. Sucks that you lost one of the few that was there yesterday. Noname mako was the boat I was on out there.

Coronados are dead tons of seals ... yes they"mex military" are out there inspecting .....
Sorry to hear that> July had 6 yellowtail and had sealions try to steal 2 but got them back before could shred them. Mex Navy was like a magnet on us both trips too going past the sport boats and going fast to get to us. Had all needed papers both times.

On Monday last week, I tried the 9 mib for wahoo with a Coranado island fall back plan. The chovies were daintilly eaten by fat sealions two feet off the back of the boat. They looked like big girls eating finger foods at a wedding. Switched to rapalas and caught 5 yt up to 20 lbs. We also lost 5 rapalas to sealions that stole 5 more yt from us. Navy circled the South island, but did not visit us.
