After a fruitless day of searching for the here today gone tomorrow local Orange Counfy bluefin, we were headed home from an afternoon at Catalina yesterday the 9th.

We spotted a large paddy with birds sitting on it about 5 miles off the slide.
Pulled up and threw sardines....4-6 small to medium dorado charged out and chased baits but didn’t inhale anything.

We pulled around 4 more times for the same story. All show and no go.
Water was 70 and clear offshore blue.
Go get em!
