Mackerel Magnet (Sailfish 21' CC)
Report for 6/21. Launched at 5:45. Was misting and overcast most of the day. Worked all around north island and didn’t see much life. Worked down through middle grounds and it was a little more promising but nothing. Went down to lee of S Island and seemed to be a bit fishier. A few random marks here and there but nothing major and no bird activity. Slow trolled sardines back and forth finally resulted in some bites. Eventually landed 4 YT (lost 3 more - one to the trim tab, two to pulled hooks fearing sea lions). Two of them came on slow trolled mini mackerel we got in SD bay before leaving.

Bites came on 20# floro w 1/0 circle hook.

One sizable barracuda as well.

Nobody was there as everyone was offshore “chasing” blue fin.

Curious where you caught the mackerel in San Diego Harbor ?
