Took a teammate from College and his other baseball buddy out Tuesday 7/5, out of Dana. Launched at 5, got a good scoop of dines, made a few macks, and headed offshore. 277, 209, 289, and 312 all had no life in the AM. From the 289 I headed towards an area that had a nice, slick, fishy patch of water a few miles away, courtesy of my buddies Frasier Volpe gyros I borrowed. Well worth the money. Saw lots of terms working, and almost immediately about 10 different spots of fish popped up, and we picked the closest one. Long story short the fish were up all day but stopped eating at about 11 to just breeze around. There was tonnage of big yellowfin around. They never sunk out, and wernt boat shy. If only I had my gun.... Everything was on surface irons and poppers, no love for bait, kite, nada. All kelps were empty except for one with some small yellows. Ended up with 4 nice yellowfin up to 70lbs for 2 guys, great day on the water! Don't rule out the artificials just yet! Lots of miles logged, many hours in the gyros, and almost giving up but not quite got us these fish. They may be harder to find and get to eat, but they're definitely around. First video my buddy got of the gaff shot was a cool one!
