    Launched out of Mission Bay at 4:30am with my buddy Austin (plattas son) on his 22ft Pro Sport "Plattapuss"...We grabbed a scoop of 6-8" sardines and headed south to the Coronado's with our buddy Tim aboard too.

    Started at Pukey around 6:15am, slow motored around looking for sonar marks with nothing worthy to be found. Didn't spend much time here. Tons of chovy schools in the water on the inside of North Island. Worked our way south down the line through the middle grounds and found some birds diving on more chovy schools.

    Worked through the middle grounds. Calm conditions, water was roughly 67 degrees and started finding sonar marks in about 60-80ft of water. Sardine started getting bit well. Dropped yoyo's and threw surface iron for no takers. Picked up several Yellowtail and mixed in Calico's in this zone, lost a few nice yellows in the rocks that dove down running from seals. We were getting bit well on the lighter line, which also came at a price. Managed to land several 14-18lb YT in this zone and broke off a few larger models in the mix.

    In the middle of all this, our bait had turned over and we were screwed. Not sure what happened...but we had only a couple beat up looking baits left around 10:30am. Luckily we saw fellow BD'er Brad (BMoore1975) who saved us with a healthy pass of fresh baits to keep us going. Can't thank you enough man, we owe you!

    After that we decided to try a different area...moved down south off the lighthouse and found tons of life down there, but a parking lot. Free swimming smaller Yellows breezing around our boat mixed with Cuda & Calico's all over the place. We had fun with larger Cuda's chasing down & eating the surface iron. We released several mixed Bonita, Cuda, Calico in this zone. Slow troll, fly-line, and surface iron all worked well in this area. Seals were relentless as usual. Had two seals chasing a larger Cuda hooked on a surface iron all the way to the rail and almost into the boat. Headed in early and put the sled back on the trailer by 2:30pm.

    Tails up guys, go whack em!

    Right on Dustin ! Glad to help. We boated 7 fish on one stop right after passing you the scoop. It was pretty epic.

    Fun day! Not many boats in the background. But I bet there were around.

    Doesn't sound like the pressure of the weekend hurt the bite much. Good to see.

    How were the seals....They were a lot in the middle grounds Friday......Big uns..

    You had a better day than I did. 2 bites all day and they were half-hearted and didn't get hooked. It was my own fault, though. I kept doing what has always worked for me... even when it wasn't working. I skipped the bait barge and trolled.

    I was marking them deep as well, and should have switched to the yo-yo, or dropper loop. My own damn fault. Glad somebody had a great day, though! Nice work.

    Nice report. We had a similar day, several captured and a few broke off. Some huge calicos jumping on the bait as well closer to shore. Nice day out.

    Yeah, there were a handful of boats throwing plastics closer to the islands and killing 'em.

    Was out there as well. Did not see a lot of private boats hooked up and tried to stay away from the sporties as much as possible. We went 5 for 7 in two stops. This was from 330 to 430 so we really stuck with it.
