Grabbed a beautiful scoop of bait and made the run over to SCI from Dana on 5/21. Picked up a 6lb Yellow on a paddy about 20 miles shy of the Island. Checked a bunch of other paddies from about the 209 out to the Island but none were holding. Fished the cove in tight and for a pair of small but legal Halibut and quite a few missed opportunities. Once that got slow, picked up a few rockfish just south of the island in 300ft and rather than search for yellows or other Island critters, we decided to go check out the recent Tuna zone about 10-12 miles due south of SCI. Arrived right around 1:30pm for the slack tide. There was a lot of life (birds diving, small schools of breezing fish) and a few of the sport boats in the area. Saw a guy pinned to the bow of the Thunderbird on a serious fish and saw some big explosions on their chumline. Made a few drifts on some meter marks for nada and tried trolling the Madmacs around for a little while to no avail. With a long run back to the dock and the signs of life backing off, we decided to call it around 3:00pm. We did run across one small school of breaking fish on the SCI ridge, but they were skittish and went down quick. Beautiful weather, blue water and water temps between 61 and 63 degrees. 62 gallons burned. All in all great day out there, things seem to be picking up.
