Pretty big news if all that is correct, I suppose it's about time they found us with all those sustained high sst's for over two months. Would appreciate any photos you have to share if you have any.

I did see that the Coloroma out of hooks land a yft and the Biscuit out of Ciscos land 2 bft today.... so perhaps it's about to bust loose in the 805.

You will see marlin everyhere, tuna all came up in the dolphin. Dorado was open water.
I can throw plenty of pics of marlin up. the blue fin i let go, was only 8-10lbs. the skippy too, was 15lbs. the dorado was weighed in at Cisco's Wensday, pics are online. Buddy caught the YFT, dont have a pic of that.

Swordfish?
I know where you put the "S" there's a ton of bait and Bonita but it seems the water is too warm right there for Swordfish.

We catch them in 82 degree water in FL. Nothing is too warm or cold for Elvis.

I fished for swordfish with the harpoon for a few years and swordfish can tolerate warm water as well as colder 60 degree water. many were taken in that area (east end) and down to the slide over the years/ Very cool report!!!

Yes I am a liar, please do not take my advice and stay home. Also you should look at a guy’s posts before calling BS!
#1 I am not here to brag, tell stories, post limits, est. I am very continent with getting the few fish I intended, dropping my hook (aka anchor) and enjoying many cocktails over a sunset. Matter of fact lets go with I suck at fishing, everyone is better than me, that way I don’t have to get in any more debates. Relationships are for that. (and i definitely suck at those)
#1.1 I am posting to help a few guys out, save them some struggles that I have gone through and hopefully make some new friends. Maybe someone can help me out once in a while. Karma, all I am after! This central coast group seemed small and cool so I thought I would try the online thing again.
#2 Me and my GF bought our boat 2.5 years ago and have over 5,000 ocean miles on it. Dad has had sport fishers in CI since 88’. When I say I saw, or caught something..……just might want to listen!
#3 I was BS’ing, you caught me, I actually caught the YFT, and my GF caught a BFT, dorado and Marlin. See below.
#4 Don’t message me for any lure or other recommendation, everyone else can!
#5 Can look at my boat on marine traffic, I have ASI, can see my trip . Every time you see me stop in the history I am probably making up some more BS!
#6 Please don’t look at my top secret marlin lure in a couple of the pics….haha
Tight lines my friends!
In this weekend for maintenance and avoid all the marlin tournament traffic out there. Plus after 4 nights on the hook I was a little scared to ask my GF to go out again. Back out next weekend! Need to fill up after 5 days out…….anybody got some Xanex for me when I fuel up!!!
I will have a pic of a marlin with Gina in the background soon………my new goal!

bet we we see wolf pacs shorlty

Sorry still learning, not good with quotes. Can't defend the swordfish, no pics.
But can confirm I am very buzzed after now fiishing in the kayak! Should I take a selfie to prove it? I can drink more, and some more, fall in the harbor, prove i caught a buzz!!
Please..... no offense given or taken…. I would have called BS on me without some facts. But I do have a job and a boat to maintain, downloading pics and these post take time???

Let’s network work, make it worth it.

It certainly seems you're doing just fine on the relationship front, wow, that's a lot of fishing with your lady! Don't sell yourself short, I think you've found a winner! Don't let that one go.

I think we saw you out there last weekend but there were a few Luhrs out there.
We trolled way out to the west, SC Basin, condition were great with lots of bait but no fish. Seems they're all inside around Anacapa right now. I fish with my wife also. Next time we see you I'll try to raise you on the vhf or if you see us give us a call, 31' Cabo with a tower.

Yes –please reach out. no way I can off Friday off but maybe Monday. that last trip was all about Marlin and was tough. I always troll at least one tuna lure, what all those were caught on. This week end will buy some bait, as well as make some. We will be fishing the paddy’s and dolphin, lot more small stuff out.
Best to reach me on 16 . converse on 19.

Can't miss my boat, all white, big Carolina flare and big white dingy on the front.

I can attest to all the Kipp has said here. Kipp,it was great fishing the CIBFTournament with you Valkyrie was there along with 21 other boats. It was a great 5 days of fun, fish and camaraderie.

Kipp and his family are well respected in the local fishing community.
