    I did that pull 30 times at least hauling boats up and down the I-5 corridor. Seattle to SD--18 hrs tops, 2 drivers. It is all about the timing of when you hit LA south. Night.
    Me and Bent on fishing (Bill) left auburn at about 4 in the afternoon and pulled into SD at 6 in the morning(14 hrs), of course no boat going south. All about timing, and carry at least 2 spares, alot of nothing on that run.
    Go get em!

    Personally, I would swap fishing with the cali guys anytime.

    Roger that. I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to that fishery so I really didn't know. After seeing what the east coast tuna guys do I think it would be a blast. Someday when I am rich I will be flying east to partake.

    I thought you guys wanted to go after the really big ones? Go big or go home???

    You don't need to go to SD. I'd say launch from Dana Point, that gets you waaaaay closer to the big stuff.

    No passports, a little less freeway driving, much shorter boat ride (like 30-40 miles less). Just an fyi.

    I'm up for what ever the crew wants my main concern is to figure out to come when there's more species there or come now

    Ryan,

    I would say go now. Later in the summer you break the cardinal rule - never leave fish to find fish

    No Hoo here....yet.

    Your point as I understood it was if you wait too long to come down here you would be leaving stinky ass fish for quality fishing and eats.

    Did I misunderstand? :D

    Well?

    I'm gonna be on the road/water thurs fri sat and accepting the prizes for winning the BD Yellowtail Shootout on Sun. hit me up the next couple days if you have any questions before next week.

    I look forward to a caravan of WashiGoogans rolling up on me in the coming weeks....We should be able to get you on something that pulls hard and eats decent. Yellowfin are showing in a bit better numbers and a stray Dorado or 2 has already been caught. Those should build and peak in numbers about the time kids are back in school, if that works better for you. Marlin shot too.


    Yellowfin tend to be dumber than bluefin, though they won't be found in the size some of the bluefin have been. Tough to predict how long the bluefin will stay.

    If you've fished albacore you won't have to reinvent your wheel to catch fish here.
    Similar trolling and live bait techniques apply to this fishery.

    Dropping a live bait over the side near a kelp paddy isn't tough to learn either.
    Liable to catch Yellowtail, Yellowfin, Bluefin, Dorado on any given paddy. All 4 at one stop is not highly unusual. 3 species fairly common.

    Nobody home most common :D
