Had a great day fishing with my good friend Chad on his awesome Skippy " Madrugador". and Motts , left the dock in Harbor Island @ 4:30. Got a great scope and half of sardines.... and off to the 371...
On arrival just a little after grey light, found a paddy about the size of a trash can lid, slowed trolled a couple deans by it ....... and Game, On...Plugged the boat in about and hour... Limits for all three... the school stayed with us the whole time, Chad called a couple boats in they were very cool by the time they started fishing we were done, the school seemed to go deep so not sure how they did...

Then we trolled to the 302 , no jig strikes, found a couple more patties, with Dorado , Mott's and I got hooked up, and we both got broke off, Chad came down from the tower and showed us how it was done..LOL , he got hooked up, and boated his... then lock Jaw .. so we called it a day...

In the slip around 2:30 PM

how was the weather? Thinking about going out tomorrow....
the weather on the outside was great, very very fishable, but it seemed sloppy along the shore very mixed swell ... go figure right ...

    I kept the school at the boat catching fish while chad operated on Mott's LOL :)
    Hooked up the whole time...:):) Putting more on the deck... LOL.
    Mott's is a Tropper...Chad pushed that hook through.. Cut the hook ,Pulled it out, and Mott's Game on Catching Fish... we had one hell of a team today....

    Awesome! How was the line at the barge? I haven't been out in a few weeks when it was still madness at the San Diego barge at 03:30. Hoping I can take a later start to fish that area tomorrow....

    Yes you caught your share lol , you know I gotta raze you ...ya know.......I didn't get any hand offs, I had my hands full catching my own , I did loose few though, as I think we all did if we boated all we boated all we hooked we would have had limits for 6 or 7 guys instead of 3.
    I did use one of your rods when my three weye hook less . What was even funny when we were getting hooked on 50 lb line. And jack poling them in the boat.

    Wow what a crazy day...awesome awesome
