Had an amazing three days. Fri started at Coronado middle grounds. Put 2 nice yellow tail on the boat and decided to scout for dorado areas for the rest of the trip. Went straight west of the islands 13 miles then headed north. Found our own paddy and put in two doubles on the troll. Total 2 yellows 4 dorado.

Next morning had bait tank (crew error) issues. He turned bait tank off on accident!!! Got to the islands with a tank of dead bait. Left there and went to similar area for dorado. Hit the mother load on the troll. 5 way within 5 minutes of having gear in the water. Lost 1 Released 1 and landed 3 quality fish. Put the gear back in the water and landed a single before all gear was out. Same thing this time got right next to the paddy, and bam 💥! 7 way. Landed 4 of the biggest fish for limits by 8 am. All on clones, feathers.
