Launched at 6 this morning with my uncle and picked up a scoop of the best bait ive had all year! Weather was crisp and cool with i slight offshore breeze.

We headed south to the temp break and started searching. Around 8 we found a kelp at 7 over 26 that had a bunch of rat yellows and small dorado. We played catch and release for a bit then headed south east for nada. There was a lot of dead empty water down towards the upper so we decided to go back to the original kelp.

We ended up finding an amazing kelp at 11 over 28 that was absolutely loaded with 100s of quality dorado. We got our limits quick and played catch and release for awhile. I called out the numbers and waited for a few boats to show up to take the kelp from us. I continued chumming and eventually the tuna started mixing in with the dorado. We ended up getting limits of solid tuna and prob another 30 dorado released. The dorado were vicious and you had to pull your bait away from charging dorado to get the yellowfin to bite. These were definitely the best quality I've had this year.

We waved in a sporty and a few other boats and headed back in smooth seas and on the trailer by 2. A truly amazing day with great weather and biting fish! The water temp ranged from 68 to 69.5 in this zone and was cooler everywhere else we looked. Good luck and stay safe!

Thanks for that call out brotha! we just finished up fishing YT at the 371 when we got your call. Hopped on the radio with you right after and got there just in time for a single dance with a YF each before them dogs shut it down. Man at one point there were about 12 dogs that could be counted. Also got our limits of them nicer dodo as well! Man this years dorado bite has been awesome. That's us actually behind you in the photo of you hold your 2 dorado. I knew that was you over the radio as we were talking. Thank you agin for the call out... o and I think you missed blue boat guy! He could of pulled a water skier behind him as he approached the patty!

You rock brotha! Another beautiful day on the water.

Nice Cory! Fall fishing is here. My boat partner got into some quality on Sunday. Hope to get out soon if life doesn’t get in the way. That zone seems to be where the fish are holding.
