After 2 amazing days of fishing the jumbos out west, we decided to explore the local scene Monday 8/3. After searching far and wide we ended up back at our door step in the foam from 2-4pm, no boats in sight and very close to a south Orange County harbor entrance. OC friends, don’t be afraid to go looking! We found a tonnage of bluefin, with spot after spot breezing up on the surface all afternoon. The size of these breezers were incredible. We followed from a distance these spots til they found bait and came up. They chewed the Stickbait! Good luck to anyone going out this week🤙

I don't buy it. To many sport boats and local boats coming and going to the Islands and offshore and all of a sudden they pop up close to a O.C Harbor Entrance?? If they consider the butterfly close to a harbor, Then I buy it. He probably wants other boats to go scout out areas for him!

Great post and picts. For those thinking that there are zero fish north of San Diego..... get out the bait. Sometimes they go where they want.... without asking "official" permission. Have seen it in the past.... many times. Just be prepared. Sad they didn't post the numbers.

Great work.
Someone said they caught wahoo 5 miles outside a few years ago .
No one bought that for a bit.
Its why our passion is so bad ass. You never know what the sea will offer up.
This season is shaping up nicely.
Yup, my buddy caught a hoo a few years ago just a few miles outside of DP harbor

It’s funny every time we catch them alone some kook on here thinks we are lying😂 Couch fishermen like you are the exact reason we have fish being untouched very close to home, everyone thinks they’re south of the border. News flash, not everyone chases sport boat counts and 976 reports! Another hint, this fish was just south of where any OC sport boat coming to and from the islands would go. If you’d like me to spoon feed you numbers to prove your ignorance I don’t mind, but I don’t need your validation for what you buy and don’t buy from my post.

It doesn't look like they need anyone to scout for them, just saying.

Nice pics, thanks for the report.
