Well like the title says: Steve and I chased the elusive bluefin out of MDR and after 90 miles they remained, well, elusive šŸ˜©.

We trolled MadMacs seemingly most of the way to Oxnard and back. No signs of tuna at all. Water started cooling at Pt Dume and dropped to 66 degrees. Dolphin were everywhere. Damn Bluefin!

We did run inshore and grabbed some rockfish and a goat, so we didnā€™t come home totally empty handed.

Ocean was as flat as it gets and it felt like Florida out there. Swim trunks and flip flops by 9AM. Great day boating.

Next time.

What fish is this? Shaped like a Midshipman, but without the teeth.

If only you would have drove 150 milesā€¦ worth a look anytime you have a chance to get out on the water though. Iā€™m saving my gas money for my next run.

    Why go after 2 fish when there are thousands straight out? Small craft?
    Yeah, coastal probably felt better in a 19-21 instead of way out to the 499....

    Good effort guys, I was up at the islands, debating on chasing some Tuna, sounds like we made the right choice staying at the islands... But ya never know till ya go!
