Went out yesterday with family and friends and headed south out of DPH..the further out we got the better the water became, 74 degrees, although a bit windy, this didn’t stop the action. First Mahi on the boat was caught while dropping our sardines near a pod of feeding dolphin with no patty in sight. Made 3 stops at 3 patties and hooked up a few but lost more.. 25# leader with size 2 hooks and long soaks with big sardines and chumming with macs worked the best. I lost a biggy..broke off after the 3rd set of jumps.... I also hooked a small ravenous mako that wouldn’t let go...on our last stop we saw a small whale repeatedly charging the patty over and over, not sure if that was typical behavior, but that was a first for me. We saw tuna but they were fast and furious, they sunk down fast.... fun day overall!

They are still out there.. boat limits today by noon. 72 degree water, 4 dry patties and last one was holding....don’t use any less than #25 line or odds are you’ll get chewed off. ...got checked by DFG at the docks and the boat next to us got busted and ticked with 5 short bass..not worth it.
