Normally, this time of year, the SoCal reports board is burning up with a bunch of reports every day. But needless to say, it's pretty quiet here compared to other years. It's easy to understand, because it seems that there are only two things happening... Take a shot at the jumbos or go scratching around for YTs and the odd small tuna. To put this in perspective, in the most recent reports from the San Diego landings, there were 7 boats reporting for 1.5 to 2.5 day trips. The 111 anglers on those trips came home with a grand total of 20 tuna, mostly the big boys, but included in that 20 was a handful of the smaller stuff too. Obviously, there are a whole lot of us sitting on the sidelines waiting and hoping for the typical summer pattern with a good shot at schools of the 20 to 40lb fish. I'm way past even wondering if we'll ever see albacore swing in down here, but does anyone have any intel as to whether there are any substantial schools of YFTs that may be coming into range? I track the Marine Traffic site and while the occasional long range boat heads south, they generally end up swinging in to load on on the nicer grade YTs. And none of them are reporting their usual big summer tuna numbers. So, where are the schools of YFTs or BFTs that we saw in the last few years? They've got to be somewhere.
