    Went out saturday morning 6am from dana point with a beautifil scoop of dines that lasted all day. Headed out to the 209. We looked at temp break for the last 8 days and warm water really pushed up. Lots of patties with a few yt, no biters. Headed south, all the way to the middle grounds of the nine mile- where we had seen a lot of tuna a week or so before. Though we did see a puddler upon arrival, the N9 had much more life as we passed it. Headed back up to the N9 where we ended up chasing tuna around for a while and patty fishing. Almost every patty had yt and some were chalked full- no takers. Flew a kite with the yummy for a long while and snagged some sort of cuda looking needle nose fish. Decided to head back staying about 15 miles from shore and saw tuna the entire way back into the oceanside area, and boy did we chase them. Every single puddler we saw. Finally around 6pm outside of oceanside my bro hooked one on a pink/purple colt sniper as we slid in on them. He casted then steadily retrieved across the puddlers. 25-30# yft was the result. Largest concentration of life/fish was north of the north 9 by a few miles. Oceanside 15 miles out was also plentiful with tuna. We covered tons of ground almost 200 miles and came up with one conclusion... there is a huge amount of fish out there, everywhere. If its not "lifey" get out of dodge. Where there are tuna there is life. Tight lines and safe fishing.

    Has anyone tried trolling a "hoochie" I was fishing the east cape a few years ago and we trolled a couple of these that were barely 2 inches in length just big enough r cover the hook. They worked great on 100 pound tuna (yellowfin)

    Nice fish!!! Did you calculate how much per ounce you would need to sell that fish to break even!!! Lol. I gave away some tuna at work in the fall!! He forgot ithis in the refrigerator at work and threw it away!!!! Heard this AHOLE!!! (Who by the way will not get a drop of sea water ever again) say oh it's free it doesn't cost anything to catch a fish in the ocean!!! Well let's all keep enjoying our (free) fish!!!! Lol

    Nice job, any pictures of the needle nose looking fish. Could have been a "Needle nose", a tropical/subtropical fish.

    The pink hoochie.. Trolled them in Mex too. Purple too can work. Not a bad call. Trolling has sucked in general the last few years. Give it a try.

    What he failed to mention was the amount of life we saw on just short of the 209. Really decent life, good hard temp break. Follow the chlorophyll road.

    Glad i could be if some help.. we are all in this hunt together and with the amount of fish out there, there is no reason to keep it to ourselves. A very generous captain was on the radio saturday sharing his find of tuna out of oceanside and another captain that was getting a few on the troll i think in the 425 area. Thanks to all of those fellow fisherman who try to make all of our days on the water a bit more enjoyable. Lets spread the love and make this year one to remember by helping eachother out. Also there were a couple of aholes cussing up a storm on 72 prob cus they were bitter from not catching. But guys there are young sons and daughters out there, lets show them what fishing is all about.
