Hopes this helps. 92 mile round trip. North 9 to 302 to 371 to 425 to Coronados. Best area I ran across was the north 9 area straight out of mission bay. Two small kelps with jumping dorado. 2-3 mile outside north 9 found puddling smaller yellowfin. Threw everything we had at them & trolled around them for nothing. Long boat ride after that. Found great looking kelps 7-8 near 371 south with birds on them. All kelps have micro bait on them With no fish. Saw 2 dorado. Stopped at coronados on the way home. Fun yellowtail fishing. Seals were brutal. Beautiful conditions and didn’t break anything.

p.s. saw Ali and his camera crew heading to get some bait as we were leaving the bait barge. I yelled and waved. He probably thought I was crazy! Not sure he knows he is famous? Finding my own fish did not work today.

Sucks when you finally find a kelp and no one's home! Had a jumbo kelp yesterday, with a dozen terns sitting on it, all by my lonesome, first thing in the morning - in the "zone", and NADA :eek:...

Fortunately it didn't matter much, there were open water dorado everywhere rolling on 'chovies, and they (as Dave Marciano says) went "over the rail and into the pail."
