Went today at the 43. Found yellowtail rats holding on a few paddies 5 were caught on live bait.
Bluefin were scattered & not schooled up. Saw no foamers or boils. Trolled yummy flyers & daisy chains. 2 were caught on daisy chains both over 100 pounds. One was lost to a yummy flyer when the clip wrapped around the line when the fish blew up on it.
Seas were rolling but very fishable. Winds were good all day until about 2 pm then whitecaps picked up. We quit about 3:30 pm

    I believe it. Seems like every year there are a few dumb big ones that fall on the troll. Usually cedar plugs or DTX-style deep plugs. Nice going! Bummer on leaving the phone in the truck!
