Another great trip to SQ. Towed our boat down from SD without issue and stayed at the Old Mill. Fished with our good buddy Captain Juan on Friday to give the WSB a shot inshore. Trolled the crocks and did that whole deal for nada. Apparently the bite had been on and off...off this day. We decided to hit the highspots for other action. My bro got a nice yellow and lots of the usual good SQ fishing for lings, rockfish, whitefish, etc..

Saturday I decided to run outside to the warmer water and it paid off. Several nice big dorado, and LOTS of small football YFT. Most released, several for sashimi! Water temp on the outside was 74 degrees, VS 60 degrees on the beach. Few paddies but lots of life. Dorado were taken on the troll and then also baited with a live mack. All open water hookups.

Day three was a repeat of day one. We were way too beat up for another long run offshore so hit the 6 and the 240 for bottom fish action.

We usually fish here every winter so it was fun to fish SQ in the summer. Can't wait to be back!

Nice job! How far offshore before you hooked up with the dodos and tuna? We're there Sunday.

Thanks

We started getting hookups on skipjack with good clean water about 20 miles out. The tuna were in the same area, but the best action was west of the Tuna Hole, approx. 35 miles from the Bay.

Good Luck!
