    The weather has kinda picked up the last few days.
    The San Diego made a decision not to go to San Clemente island to fish the big girls.
    Instead, we fished local.
    Ryan wasn't the skipper today. But his replacement did everything to get us on fish.
    We were supposed to be back at the barn by 5. Instead, we were back at 7:30.
    Tunas were a no show today. But you can only catch what's in front of you. That was rat yellows. 5# fish with an occasional 10-15#. I tried for tuna all day. No luck. I kept 1 rat for give away.
    Captain said there was a big volume of tuna that had lock jaw.
    Go get them.

    I fished a Lexa 400 on a 8' Truline 4x. I had 40#. And had no trouble getting bit.
    If you could cast a bait out you got bit. There were quite a few guys that couldn't cast.

    Hey Sealskinner, did you guys have sardines? Last week, I got 100% anchovies, I also lost my casting skills on them light weights, especially into the wind, lol.

    Saw some big chovies. But they were few and far between. All I fished were dines for bait.

    I fished the San Diego on Monday. Wind came up and pushed us of the patty pretty quickly. Bait tank was crowded, rail was crowded and I didn't know whether to fish for Bluefin or Yellowtail. I think I will stay inshore for a while.

    Don't know unless you go.

    I'm booked Tuesday and weather is supposed to warm up,
    full moon that night and I was able to get on one of my favorite boats.

    Thanks for the report.

    Hope the weather cooperates , I’ll be on a overnight trip on the Pacifica leaving Sunday Fishing Monday. Keeping my fingers,eyes and toes crossed for nice weather.
    A fat sack of fish for the drive home would be nice too .
