    Went out Friday 7/24 on Tim's boat Top Shot . arrived at launch ramp @ 3 am , already getting crowded.
    somehow managed a full scoop of Killer dines . went out 6 miles
    At grey light we started seeing jumpers and puddlers and metering fish .
    Tim had brought a bag of frozen Dines from a previous trip to Chunk . What a difference that made.
    anyway Started hooking fish immediately we had 5 aboard when our Buddy Mike Burkis called us over
    to a Wide Open Bite closer to shore . Could not get over the volume of fish there, Tim once again
    Hooked and Landed a couple Larger Models going 60 + on his 30 # outfit , Wow
    Chunking was the Key to keeping the fish around
    WE had our fill of YFT and decided to look at the 209 , we found working turns and more YTF. called it a day.
    Had one of those days you will always remember with Tim and my son Ryan,
    Here are some pictures enjoy and go get em.

    These fish are "big"! Sick! Great work! Hitting it on Monday for first time out of Dana for fishing tuna. Usually fish out of Dana for seabass or going over to cat. Hope they keep biting.
