Loaded up by 7:30. Left seaforth at close to 9 am due to an hour long bait line and two boat issues. Radio wasn't working and the boat was taking on some water. Sorted those issues out and headed for the 9.

Got to blue water and temp was reading from 77 to 82, it must be off by 5 or so degrees. We saw a couple blue whales on the way out and birds working here and there. No ponies. We were metering scattered fish along the way.

We found a large group of birds on a nano patty and the meter lit up so we stopped. We had some frozen chovies chunked and 6-9" deans that we cut up as they rolled. (They all did by noon) Started a chum line and got some swimmers out, bendo in less than a minute. We loaded the fish hold and cooler and then headed for the barn.

They bit 30-50lb line mono and flouro, didn't matter. I started on 30 and worked my way up, I might go the other direction next time.

I'm stoked to make some fresh poke and gorge myself on sashimi and ngiri.

First report here, I hope it helps.

Thanks Tom. All fish on live (dying) bait. The hold was full before we would have had to switch to chunk. We had a lot of breezers and I should have tossed a jig or popper, but I get tunnel vision when the bite is hot.
