    I tried two days before full moon and two days before new moon: moon phase really does not matter! There are no tuna from Dana Pt. to 14 mile. Water offshore was 66.5 F and it was dirty. Drove by several acres of mini bait. Empty paddies, no bird activity, no dolphin, no life! Save yourself some gas and go somewhere else if you are going out tomorrow.

    Thanks, I feel better about staying home today and have been wrestling with whether I made the right call.

    We were out yesterday and worked everything we could from Newport/HB out to mid channel. Lots of bait but no other signs of life. No dolphin, few birds and nothing more.

    We had a full spread out and only had one short strike on cedar plug daisy chain that may have been a calico over a high spot.

    Looks like Catalina is providing quality YT in numbers today despite the windy forecast. That might be a good bet.

    My Friday trip from DP-267-Slide was same. Now some YFT are biting on the slide on flylined mini-dines. Go figure.
