Got to the east end of cat around 1am and made some micro squid with a half dozen full sized thrown in for good measure spent the entire day trolling around the backside from one end to the other at 6-7mph and picked up a 29lb yellowtail around China point on a nomad dtx 140 in mackerel. Ended the day anchored up at the isthmus highspot in 80ft going for seabass and connected with the first one within seconds of the squid hitting the bottom. White jig head with a nice healthy large squid. Picked up 2 more throught the night both with the same style jig head but one with old dead squid that I would hardly call rockfish bait and the other with 4 micro squid pinned on. Left the island Tuesday morning for the 40mile run back to dana and well... looks like my throttle sensor shit the bed and had to limp home at 6 mph...didn't see one bird diving or a single bait fish under a paddy all day but it was calm at least
