    Weather was a little questionable but I wanted to take her offshore. Im not use to a heavy boat and man what a difference. She handled it no problem compared to my bayrunner... 12-15MPH
    Wind and swell were still upstill up but forcasted to laydown by the afternoon. Launched at mission and got a great half scoop from the boys. 90% 4-6" sadine with some macks mixed in. Out of the mouth at 61.5° water and headed toward the 302.
    East of the 302 water crept to 63°and we find our first paddy. Soak bait for nada, iron,ect. Try a slow troll on the way out and my partner pulls a rookie move and dropps his lever down will his drag is screaming. First fish gone... try the patty for a bit but nothing after that.
    Rain squalls loom in the distance but its getting better so we put the trollers out in hope of some poki. Worked our way down to the proper 371, waters at 64° and the first boats we've seen so far. 4 sporties and some privates mixed in. We troll around staying respectfully away and then see why they are around. That was no little blowup. Pull trollers in and drop bait out. Tried flatfalls, light line deans, iron rt on the boils, ect. 1 hour for nothing and the bite ends. Slow trolled out for nada. Worked southeast about 8 miles water at 64.4° weather gets absolutely perfect. We find more patties but all dry.
    We sweep west then north and back over the 371 highspot, north to the out side of the 302 with acouple more patties and nobody around. Loop in between the 226 and 302 water is at 65°. Everthing was perfect, but no fish. Headed to the barn over a hundred miles and burned 40gals. Not bad considering all the trolling and crappy ride out in the morning.
    Its all lined up out there, only a matter of time! DONT KNOW IF YOU DONT GO!

    If I may ,,, here are a couple of suggestions.
    You may already be doing the following but just in case.

    Run your trolling lures at least 100 yds. behind the boat. BF are notoriously very boat shy. The same with flylined baits. Dump them then drift or motor 100yds. away from them. If running surface lures with out getting any takers add 12 oz 6 ft up or troll very deep diver type lures Nomad Makes some good ones. If the BF are not eating surface offerings it is an indication they are not in a chasing mood and you have to get offerings down deeper , closer to where they are requiring less effort for a "snack".

    That analogy also holds true when on a charter. If the trollers are not getting knocked down that is a strong indication that on the next stop butt hooking or adding a couple of oz. of lead would be highly beneficial.

    Congrats on a safe off shore adventure with your new rig.
    My ..37 cents worth for your consideration.

    I was out a little below you and had BFT all around the boat. Sent you a FB friend request. I am in the water at CYM in Chula Vista. We should fish some time.

    Yes, let’s see pictures, what year is it, what did you pay for it? Looks like an ideal SoCal machine.
