    So after Ocean Odyssey canceled we jumped on the Poseidon, Hunter ended up canceling the trip because we only had 8 Anglers to sign up. We jumped on the Relentless with Captain Mike. We headed out at 9pm, loaded up with sardines and hit the road (waters) roughly at 10pm. Everyone was up and anxious to potentially night jigging for BFT. No schools presented themselves for us. We were up at 5am and fish boiling around the boat by 5:30am and it was steady until about 9am. 90 plus YT and we left our first stop. by 11 am we knew we would limit out on YT and have plenty of time to search for the other Pelagic species. We stopped at a few kelp to grab the remainder amount of our YT limits. We came across some Dorado but they were not schooled up and very ransom around us. 1 angler was able to hook a Dorado but lost it at the gaff. We ran into several other scools but no takers. We came across some Bonito and hook up on some 8 to 12 lb Bones. Ended up trolling in search for BFT and we did not come across any.
    Pretty good event and go to kill somr fish in the process. Overall I caught 13 YT and 5 Bonito. Kept 5 YT and 3Bonito.
    Here is the video of the trip.

    Any possibilities u wanna share that bonito location? Asking for my cat...
    I was on a charter boat, but lucky for you I did drop pin our locations of big schools.




    With current and migration, they may no longer be there, but that was the area

    Glad you ended up on a good boat. Relentless always has been a "fishy" boat.
    Glad you scored some nice Yellows and Bonito. Bluefin being Bluefin again lately I guess? LOL
