Plan was to hit East End of Cat first thing for Yellows then Mackerel Bank to look for the tuna. Anchored up at Orange Rocks with minimal conditions and cousin’s son got 3 of the smaller grade yellows right away. 20lb fluoro and #2 light wire circle hook. He was the only one getting picked up by the yellows. Gave that about an hour and left for the Mackerel.

On the way we spotted tons of nice kelps that had bait and a couple with deep marks. Got to Mackerel Bank and put out the trollers. Ran into a small foamer and eased into it. Got a couple casts to it before they sank out and struck. Radio said a few with similar results.

Ran back to Cat for a few of the nicer Bones at the Quarry then called it around 5pm. Nice boat ride back down to Dana.
