We left SI at 4:30 am,and decided to drive across the lower 9,and keep heading s/w.We saw the zoo as we got out there,and put the trollers in about 15 from the point,and got a YF pretty quick off the purple rapala.About 2 hrs later,we found a kelp with a lot of life,but only a few small yt on it.I marked it,and put a marker on it,since we metered fish down deeper.We got as far as 38 miles from the point,but not much happening,so we turned back in.About 2:30 we found our kelp,and this time it was loaded,and they wanted to bite.We put 6 more tuna and finished out limits of real nice size YT in about an hr,and we could have kept going,but by the time we were done,there were 12 boats on it,2 literally parked on top of it,cutting a fish out of the kelp!There is no more common courtesy on the water anymore,but it is what it is.Just people that are not too familiar with kelp fishing don`t realize that you can drift pretty far from it,if the fish are staying with you,and that's what we did.All the tuna came at least a half mile from the paddy,when birds,fish,and bait would pop us close to us and we would get bit.
