    After my dismal season of looking at fish with an uncanny ability of not hooking them, I jumped on the San Diego with Captain Ryan and crew of Shon, Matt, and Cruz. Top notch crew. I can't say enough about them. This is the best run boat I've been on.

    Best fishing yesterday was at North Island from Pukey Point all the way down the lee side to the south end. The big bonies were thick and aggressive on the surface and the yellowtail were down deep. I went 2 for 3 on 20 lb class 'tails, having 1 come unbuttoned at deep color. All my 'tails were hooked on the yoyo close to the bottom. Once I dropped to the bottom, I only reeled about 20 cranks before dropping back down. If I brought the jig up too high, it would be attacked by bones. Size and color of the jig did not matter.

    We had one very nice drift mid-day but by the afternoon the fish had scattered. Ryan searched hard to put us on one more school, keeping the boat out late to do so, but unfortunately it didn't happen. But not for lack of trying.

    Pics of the day.

    The islands have always been one of my favorite spots. Got to get my visa so I can fish there again.

    I agree, if you have to catch bones, those are nice ones. Thanks for the report, congrats on the YT.

    Each one of those bones had a gill cut and were thrown into the RSW immediately. The meat quality is incredible. Will make some great bonito ceviche and poke. Not quite as good as yellowtail, but it's good stuff when properly handled like it was.
