I'm going to out tomorrow and I'm thinking about heading south towards the 17 Fathom. I'm in a 25' skipjack so I'd like to buddy boat if anyone is heading out that way.

For anyone that's been out that way, any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated. I haven't had enough opportunities to fish with work being so busy so I'm hoping for a good one. The wind/surf reports seem okay, but has anyone been out that way, how was the ride?

Out today but no fish for us. Just 3-4 mi off the east end of Anacapa looked really good with bait, birds and dolphin like crazy. Someone on the radio said they got yft and skippies in there slow trolling both macks and anchovy. Seiners were setting further east halfway to county line and were prowling around capa as well.

What the hell happened ? I heard there were Tuna outside Point Magu this weekend . No body has seemed to hook any ? Even the news showed a guy bit by a hammerhead and a picture of two guys with tuna . Surprised no reports have been posted .

We were at Decker's and Nicholas on Saturday. We didn't have the right bait and were unable to make better bait. We went offshore following west, northwest looking for paddies and birds. We found many paddies holding bait fish, but we no yellows or tuna. Another hard, beautiful day with no bites. Going to make sure to find the right bait this Saturday before even trying to throw in. 3-4" anchovy aren't cutting it.

Hey Kipp,
I saw on my AIS plot that you were out there Sat and Sun. I went out Monday to the same area we go one out of 2 Marlin. Skip was out there too on the Dawn Patrol he C&R 2 out of I think 4 hookups.

Stellar year next week should be a blast!!

We showed up early before light at Leo and made macs in 40 feet of water with cat food and led lights . Wide open on 8 inchers .
Yeah, we don't have working nav lights or deck lights, so we have some challenges to overcome. I heard people made bait at the CI harbor at 4:30 with green LEDs too. Just had a baby so money is tight as can be.
