I haven't seen very many posts lately on the 381 or nearby. I see most of the sporties are 60 miles south. Anyone fishing the 381 area?

As I always say if your not going to catch any fish you might as well do it closer to home.

381 was lit up yesterday. Lots of YFT and BFT. Lots of boats as well. Lost a foul hooked giant 20' below the boat. The seiner fleet was spotted on the way out before turning the corner.

Today was slow. About 25 boats out there. Radio reports said fish moved towards the condom bank.

I was out there Tuesday stayed the night in pyramid, and came home Wednesday. Overall it was weak signal. We were on the 381 first thing in the morning and left since there wasn't much. Went up the back side and down. Not much. Went back to the 381, and still didn't see shit. No marks nothing. Was basically up and down the backside crossed the 381 went north south east and west of it. My guys didn't even want to try it in the morning since it sucked so much.

101 miles from Dana Point out towards Cortez . No numbers , I jumped on my buddies sled .It was one school that sunk out and never showed again . Not worth the run . Lottery ticket style bite.

Yep. I was out at the Condom Bank on Monday and Tuesday. Non-stop 35-70 lb yellowfin from 11:00am until we drove away from biting fish at 6:00pm. We also got 5 big bluefin from 140-215 lbs. I got a cow that taped out at 207 lbs on a fly lined mackerel.

I would love to see pics of the fish If you have any . Curious about the length of the sickles on a 70 pound Yft from our local waters . Long like in Hawaii ? My Pb is 42 pounds out here .

This is my buddy’s, the largest of which weighed in at 68 lbs. at the dock after being bled. Short sickles.

It was easily the most epic local fishing I’ve ever seen. I went 11 for 12 on the YFT, the largest being 54 lbs. 5 were over 40 lbs, 9 were over 35 lbs. and they all ate sardines on 60 lb fluoro. We had to stop fishing to avoid plugging the 2.5 ton fish hold on day 1 of a 2.5 day trip. We saved just enough room for trophy hunting on day 2 and literally could not fit another fish in the hold. Plus I got a new avatar. 😂
