Hi everyone. This is my first post on this forum after a long time looking around. One of my friend teach me how to fishing in US 1 year ago and i'm still learning everything still i found out this forum. Thank guys for creating a great community and great information on Fishing. I started reading So Cal Offshore fishing report for like 6 months, i went here to read the reports every time i'm not working, i have tried everything trying to catch some tuna and went out to 207 , 277, Desperation reef last month but always end up nothing until today. Yesterday i decided to give it one last try to catch some tuna out there. I launched at Seal Beach at 11PM on my 22 ft Mako, arrived at Eagle Reef to pickup one and half scoop of squid for bait $100. Stay in the reef trying to catch some mackerel but they don't bite so i started heading Tanner bank at 2. I'm arrived around 5AM drop some squid on egg sliding sinker with 3/0 circles hook. In 30 mins me and my friend lost about 6 times for the shark or tuna i don't know but i saw some shark that come close to my transom so i can touch them. At about 5:45AM my friend got a bite hard, we didn't expect too much because there are a lot of shark around our boat but after one hour fighting my friend got us the first Tuna in the day with his Talica 16. The shark bite half belly of this tuna which the best toro sashimi there . Then we drop about 2 Talica 25s 1 Tiagra 30 but no bite until 9AM so i'm trying to fish the bottom with my Stella 8000. When i just drop the squid on Stella the tuna on the picture with me hit it and almost spooled my Stella so i decided to set the drag tighten because i know if i get spooled i lost it hundred percent. Luckily i managed to get a hold of him with my Stella and bring it home after one and half hour of fight. That's it Thank for reading and sorry for my English. P/S they only eat live squid and the best time is early morning. Trust me it's crazy.
