Headed out yesterday with a few friends. Went west at 30 knots from Mission Bay until we spotted a marlin. Slowed, trolled a dine for two minutes, then zzzzzzzz hook up. Marlin on less than an hour into our day. Fought it for a few then it came unbuttoned. Bitchen way to start the day. Marlin was 5 miles inside the 182.

Hit the 182 for nada. Headed south from there and found a patty holding a big school of quality dumb dumbs about 8 miles north of the boarder! Plucked off a few nice yellows on a different kelp.

This was the largest school of Dorado in US waters I have ever seen. By largest I mean the over all size of each fish. For reference the larger Yellowtail on deck weighed 27lbs gutted and bled! Toad Doads!

Fat lady went back to the cupboard for some Twinkies!!!

Did you catch all the dodos on live bait or did you use any jigs/lures?

We caught them on live dines, dead dines, surface iron, and poppers. Got a 35lber on the popper, absolutely incredible runs and jumps on the popper fish.

Too cool. Glad you had fun!!We just smoked fish for three days. Used apple wood really came out awesome. I tell you We had YFT YT Skippies Dodos and Bonito. With spiking bleeding and icing immediately the Bonito might taste the best. Skippies. Ok. My dog loves it. But have so much I will stick to others. Especially BFT and Wahoo are my favorite.
