Absolutely amazing amount of big fish south west of Point Loma right now. We found them today near the 302 in the afternoon and it was foamer after foamer of 80plus lb fish.

I went 2/3 on the bigger BFT and lost one that was easily over 100lbs due to a pulled hook. ALL my fish came on the popper with the big treble hooks. My boat-mates went 0/4 on the Salas 6S yoyo. Make SURE you fish 80lb line or stronger.

If I go back out I plan to fish a 7' rod with my HX Ratpor rigged wtih 100lb Floro.

LEAVE the smaller gear at home.

GO FISH NOW.

Unreal. The weather is supposed to be garbage this week but should be flat by this weekend. Just can't believe the size and quantity of these things 2 hours off shore. Does anyone know when the Seiner season starts? These fish will disappear overnight.

We were down at the upper finger yesterday and counted seven Seiners. I heard they had met their quota already but don't have anything to quantify that.

We didn't find them till after 1pm. I think it might be a time of day thing. Just a heads up.

PS- Dont bother with bait...

I'm skeptical of the oversight on those guys, powerful lobby behind them too. I watched them totally destroy the local potentially epic yellowfin fishing last year. #catfood.

Nice Tony! What reel were you using? We started at the 302 then headed south to 230 and 371. Found a couple spots and one large foamer that I got one cast into with that HX I bought from you with a 60g Coltsnipers.. no love though. Will try again next weekend. Thanks, awesome job!

I was using my jx raptor with my 900m. I was able to kill the fish you see pictures in about 10 minutes, but the bigger model I lost I couldn't move at all. I fought the bigger model for 15 minutes and was pinned to the rail the entire time...

Commercial guys are almost done. About 100 tons left til they have hit their limits. :)
