Headed out around 6am. Stopped at a paddy at the N9 for micro-yellows, continued west till 3 miles west of the 182. We trolled for 5 miles and caught a few more small yellows. Headed south to the kidney bank and trolled again for nothing. Tried drifting and free lines some dines... nothing. Headed back NE and no paddies for 20 miles.

Saw what looked like a large pod of pilot whales moving super slow, never seen that before. Lots of porpiose around the 9. No life as we went further out. Temp varied from 71.4 at 182 to 72 at 302 and up to 72.5 on N 9.

2nd trip this month for nada...

We fished about 15 miles off of la jolla/del mar inside the 182 and slayed the dorado. Did you find big paddys? They were out there. We picked 1 off the first paddy and then had found another that served us to limits. I disagree with having to go south

It's like the end of the ski season!!! The resorts close most years just due to lack of interest not snow!!! You need to remember this most likely the best year in modern times. There are fish everywhere!!!! Just be patient. Work a system but work. Lots of days it takes hours to find right area!!! But the Dodos are ridiculously thick on the right paddy!!! Tight lines!!!!
