    Went out yesterday with my girl to look for some yellows on kelps that still seem to be around. Got a healthy 1/2 scoop of 3-5" sardines from Mission Bay that lived all day so we had plenty to dump on each patty we stopped on. Started stopping on kelps at the 9 and worked our way down to west of the Coronado's. Stopped on a dozen or so kelps with nobody home except for a ton of micro yellowtail that were barely bigger than our bait. There was one kelp a few miles west of the 9 that had a bigger yellow dart out from under it, so we slow trolled away from the kelp to see if it would come back and it came up and smoked the bait.

    Then a little bit later we came across the magic paddy about 10 mi. west of North Island with 4 birds sitting on top of it. Threw a big dipper and huge boils soon followed. It was instant bites in the corner on straight 40 lb. Even though it was her first time ever catching a fish in the ocean, my girl was able to bait and catch her own fish while I hung two on the surface iron. It was wide open for that drift and we put on 5 fish. That patty didn't re-bite so we called it a day on fishing. Get out there the water is beautiful blue and we didn't see a single boat all day, on a Saturday!

    Ha! That's awesome! Some joker defenceman on my hockey team was just bragging about his daughter catching YT with her boyfriend and showed me this pic tonight at our game!

    Just kidding about the joker part, he's a cool dude. Good job on getting her fishing and nice catch! Beware of Todd!

    How’s the ankle holding up? I think I helped you launch your boat at Dana a few weeks ago.

    I’m doing good! It was my foot that was broken, but doc cleared me to walk a few days ago so now launching the boat is much easier. Thanks again for the help that one day!
