    left Oside and headed to the 209 parking lot with 50 other boats and decided to go in a direction where I couldn't see any boats.
    Long story short massive amounts of bluefin/yfin foaming on anchovy under white tornadoes.
    At one point my little 21 cc was completely engulfed with huge 100/200 lb bluefin literally causing a wake around my boat.
    We threw everything at them landing snipers on their massive backs and not a single bite!
    It was something out of national geographic.
    West of the 209 towards the 181 on the outside 5/8 miles.
    If you can get them to bite, for whatever it's worth.
    Water was 71.4

    use unbaited Treble hooks -- jerk them into the action. if you hook a chovy you may get bit. if you hook a tuna you may land it. lame yes, but effective for stripers., maybe it works, part of the kitchen sink.

    I don't think there's any yft near 209. Most of yft I've seen come back to the dock has been caught south.

    if you see fifty boats in a spot and no one bent you can thank fish dope for keeping them all in one spot while you go looking

    The fish are out there. Just lots of bait in the water with them so they're not really biting. Was out last Wednesday and found large schools of dodo's, yt and bluefin. Our path was: Newport, 14, 277, 209, 289, 43 182, 181 209 and back to Newport. Saw BFT, dodo and yt at pretty much every location. Looked down in the water and it was like glitter. Small baitfish everywhere. Found a few BFT in the afternoon that would boil on bait but wanted nothing to do w/ our poppers. Further south the fish we found were not boiling but would surface around the boat and sink out. Had some dodo's mouth the dines but spit them right back out. Nice day on the water. Just wished something would bite. My buddy who was on the trip with me did get a 100 and a 235 lber bft the week before on bait. The fish was weighed in at Avalon for the tuna club.

    LOL

    This trip cost us $3,000 on a big name 6 pack charter. Makes you think twice about going on a trip like this. But it was a great operation/crew and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
