Fish report- date: 4/15-4/16/2017 Location: 55 miles south of point loma, and local offshore banks. With big bluefin being caught already, itching to get one, I saw a weather window on Saturday night into Sunday morning. Decided to give it a shot overnight as they've been biting at the grey light hours. I contacted a couple friends to go, and they were up for it. We launched my boat by 6:30pm Sat afternoon got bait, and off we were, in smooth seas as predicted. We ended up around the 425 by the time it was dark. We traveled in the dark for another hour before reaching our destination at the upper hidden bank. We set up camp and enjoyed some Costco pizza and some Sierra Nevada ipas while soaking baits. I went to sleep and was woken up by clicker of reel, zzzzz. Got up only to investigate and Adrian was pulling on a nice blue shark. We got attacked a few more times by the blues. Unfortunately, not the right kind of blues. Oh well, we tried. We then proceeded to search for bluefin or kelp paddies for yellows. We found a few that were dry, along the way home we also saw tons of little jelly fish, and loads of big mola molas on the surface. We finally found a paddy with yellowtail on them. As Mohammed and Adrian were casting to them, I lobbed my surface iron jig to where I thought they might be, and it got slammed as soon as it hit the water. I fought the fish for a good 5 minutes, and put up a good fight, before Adrian sunk the gaff in it. There were more fish there, but they didn't want to bite anymore so we moved on. Not long after we found another paddy with fish on it, and they would follow our jigs, but wouldn't bite. After that we headed home and ran out of fuel 10 miles from harbor. We forgot to bring extra fuel, and we burned more fuel than expected due to battery running low at night, and the guys decided to turn motor on to recharge battery. It was okay though, because I have vessel assist. Made the call on Adrian's emergency vhf as I was giving out a weak signal on ch. 16. Vessel assist arrived in less than an hour, we refueled, and we were on our way back to shelter Island boat ramp. It was a new experience to spend the night offshore, fishing and overall, it was a successful trip. We learned a lot, had lots of fun, got some fresh air, and caught a fish. We shall do it again soon a little more prepared, and a little more educated.
