    Left Oceanside with a pretty lame ass half scoop of bait. If I knew it was so little at the time someone would be bleeding! I really did not see it being loaded my son was taking care of that. Oh well.

    Headed to the 182 seas were pretty flat in the morning cruised at a pretty good clip. We did come across some huge bait balls with no birds feeding on them, they were just balled up. Hug around for a bit, No takers so off we went. We were spotting quite a few kelp paddies on the way out, the water was 76.5 in some areas. All of the kelp had bait, We did see one Dorado about 24 out from Oceanside but Guessing he knew the game and he was it, been there done that as we say. He just sunk out of site. Trolled a yummy flyer and had a blind strike! No telling what that was, We did see some boat traffic but the direction they were heading was towards Catalina. Made a course change to the 181 still plenty of kelp but no one home! Water we getting a bit bumpy no big deal just plugged along.
    Another course change, heading to the 209 We notice a temp drop in the water down to 72 the farther we went out but it stayed at 72 for quite a while. We came across2 tankers exchanging their load about 3 miles from where we were. Nick said there was a nice paddy up ahead so lets take a look. We did see only one fish but it was not a small yellow more of the home guard size. Tossed in a huge mack and in about 5 mins game on! It took quite a while to bring it to the gaff. Taped out at 50"! Here is the numbers where we got the tail. N 3259347 W 11744827 If I had to guess @ 30 pound range. Nick did a outstanding job keeping good pressure on the tail the whole time. He was a bit tired but I was proud of him! By the way he is going into the Marine Corps March 18 2019! Jet engine Mech.
    Got back in the harbor about 3. We did see plenty of kelp on the way in but dry. got a bit choppy but headed in at a nice 25 knots, So there you have it!

    Nice fish!

    I hope your son enjoys working on the turbines. Maybe he'll continue in the future with his A&P certificate. My dad knew a guy in Saudi Arabia that was an A&P, and that dude made GOOD money doing it.
