Went out yesterday along with the rest of San Diego!

Boats were everywhere we managed to find a nice kelp holding good sz yellowtail and landed 8 within a few minutes, only two other boats saw us stopped and asked to join.

We moved on in search for the BFT we were told were in the area. At around 11:30 I saw an enormous boil which at first looked like dolphin but ended up being BFT some fish were jumping clear out of the water and had to be 100lb plus.

We hooked into 5 landed 3 and one was a yellowfin but the two bluefin were 50lb class fish.

    Are you sure you caught them off that boat? It looks spotless and the fish look perfect! Next time leave some blood so that way it looks like a battle took place.

    Your picture of the fish on the deck look staged like for "Outdoor magazine". In other words simply awesome!
