Left shelter island later then usual around 7 and picked up an awsome scoop of bait. Cleared the point in calm seas and headed south towards 425. Once to 425 area the place was alive with with birds bait and puddling bluefin. Chased school after school of tuna but they were extremely skittish.

To say there are a lot of paddys south of the 425 is an understatement. We stopped on at least 30 big paddys and some held some quality yellows. We ended up going 5 for 8 on the yellows and my buddy got a tiny dorado off one. There were other free swimmers with him but had lock jaw.

Water temp was 66 to 68 in the area we fished and slightly off colored but full of life. The weather was amazing the whole day and the wind never really came up. Good luck.

I’m sure it’s happened before, but this is the first time I’ve heard a local dodo being caught in June. Usually they don’t show up till August

Fishing Catalina Island last weekend (6-15) we hooked two sea turtles or the same one twice. A lot of warm water species showing up very early.

Is that moving towards our coast

Hey Lucas, that's actually satellite imagery showing sea surface temps and levels, monitoring El Nino and La Nina events - not a storm. NASA/JPL updates imagery about every 2 months. We are clearly in a moderate El Nino event, which confuse the heck out of the fish. :eyepoppin:beerbang:

Here's a link if you want to check it out. I find the historical data interesting to compare to in past years.
