Short Story: Fish on paddies that everyone was driving by. Long Story: Headed out at 430 with the plan of working the 9 to the 182 or 226 depending on water temps. Around 5:30/6am as the sun was coming up, we were just on the middle of the 9 near the boarder and we spotted our first paddy. With enough barely enough sunlight to see in the water my two divers hop in. A few minutes later they are swimming back to the boat, 1 dorado and 1 yellowtail. Two fish on the boat before 6am with the moon still visible. We keep moving out towards the 226 and then come across the next paddy about a mile west of the 9. Water was about 72 and I hop in with another diver. As were kicking up, we see some small wolf packs of solid yellows. My buddy shoots his, I turn left and see a monster swim by, line up and pull the trigger. Straight shot right behind the gill plate and this thing takes off! Its swimming down and I am trying to slow him. He pulls me under about 8 feet a few times. I get him in and start swimming towards the boat. Get him to the boat, my buddy gaffs the fish and pulls him in. The fish gets a second wind and starts flipping out, ends up back in the water with my spear shaft and takes off. Gone. Lost the monster yellow and my spear shaft. After a bit of depression and anger we keep moving out. As we get closer to the 226 the water temps start dropping so turn north east and decide to go back towards the fish. We find another paddy about 8 miles west of the 9. At this time we have a few mackerel that we made earlier. Drop two lines in on the paddy and see 15 - 20 dorado start free swimming around the bait. They wont bite it so its time to hop in and force feed them. There was a massive bull dorado that was leading the whole pack but smart enough to stay out of range. We were able to take 2 dorado and a yellow off this one. Right when we throw the fish on the boat and hop back up, one of the baits that we dropped in is fully bent! FISH ON. With my fins on and mask and snorkel still on, I'm fighting a nice yellow on my Cardiff 200a. Fun fight on that reel and we get him on board. Keep moving and find one more paddy closer to the 9. A solo yellow swimming around and lines up for an easy shot. Finish the day with 4 yellow and 3 dorado. Should of had a few more fish but losing the shaft limited our guns. Great day on the water, wind really didn't come up.
