Yesterday a client hired me to guide him for a day of offshore fishing on his boat, he's had it for four years now, but had never been pass Catalina. As offshore trips go we left the dock late, around 6AM, after a quick stop for bait from Nacho, we headed out at 28 knots to the 14 mile bank, about 3/4 of the way there we spotted a sleeping marlin, buy the time the boat came to a stop the fish had seen us and went deep, we slow trolled a live bait hoping to get lucky, but we didn't. At the 14 mile bank there were six boats stacked up on one patty and many others trolling, I didn't see anyone pulling on anything, the plan was from there to run farther south, but the temp charts showed the warmest water about 8 miles outside of the 277 so we ran there, about 4 miles shy of the bank we trolled again, but nothing. then finally on our 4th kelp patty of the day we spotted dorado jumping out of the water. I had my client slide his boat slowly over to the patty and an explained what to expect, of course everyone forgot and we had a mess. three baits hit the water and all three were eaten up but dorados. it took a while, but we landed all three and hit the patty again and again, we ended up with 14 dorado and lost at least that many, by 1PM the wind was starting to pick up and the fishing was slowing down so we called it a day. 1.5 hours later we were back in the harbor. The hardest part of the day was filleting all the fish. my client was happy with all the fish and he had a learn some boat handling and fishing skills, all in all it was a great day.

Very nice! BTW, did you pan fry some up with that wonderful fish batter, and put over a bed of rice????? ;)

Yes, I watched the episode a couple days ago. Think it was halibut, but I bet DoDo would taste great that way too. Looked tasty!!! :cheers:
