Ended up launching out of Long Beach this past Friday, found a really fishy zone about 12 miles off the West end of SCI. Birds everywhere, whales, breezing tuna, even a foamer or two. Fish were fairly boat shy so we set up a drfit and started a chum line and within 30 min three seiners head towards us and two spotter planes start circling. One of the three starts a set a few hundred yards from us, the birds disappeared, tuna disappeared and we ended up with nothing. Went looking for several hours and couldn't find them again; so frustrating! Hit the east end of Cat for all you wanted bonito and calicos on the way home. Beautiful day on the water, but no tuna for us. Anyone hit the temp break between SBI and San Nic?
