With downturn in weekend bite from weather and crowd, we decided to head south toward the 425 area with our buddy Jeremiah on board. Reports from Sunday indicated that there were some Dodos near the islands, so we figured we'd roll by the islands at grey light just to check and proceed south. Well...1st paddy about 1.5 miles west of Pukey and it was pretty much full speed (26 over 20 just so you can see how close)....Mexican limits on Dodos by 7am...did a lot of C&R using a net to land fish.....busted out the skin diving gear and took some underwater shots with the camera


























....sun came out and found another paddy not far from the 1st and C&R'd some more Dodos and found some yellow that wanted to bite.













Thought there might be some swell and wind according to some of the weather/swell models, but not bad at all. Maybe 2-3ft swell, and 5-10 knot wind all day, and nice and sunny in ther afternoon. Water temp. was around 74-75 just west of the islands, and the water was cobalt blue with excellent visibility around the Nados. Heard of people on the radio with productive paddys out near the 302 and inside and outside of the 425. Pulled some marlin plugs up the backside of the nine for fun, which gave us time for some chow and a coldie or two, but no biters or sightings. Overall one of the best local days we've ever had...







Overall we must have C&R'd 20 Dodos. Bait was great, took 1 scoop of the bigger deans and 1/2 a scoop of the 3inch mini-dean for chum from MissionBay, and maybe 10 pieces rolled all day. Back to the barn at 20 knots, and only put about 40 miles on the engine all day...today was our lucky day I guess, if you put in your time on the water eventually karma deals you a really good hand.

Horn Toad & Shasta on the Cape Horn....Out!

Best pictures I've seen in a long time.
Love the one under the paddie with all the fish.

You guys should have just taken that paddie to American waters and load up on the dodo's.

Great job!

Nice report and the pics are awesome! Now all you need to do is fire off the bbq. You've got to love great fishing close to home! I'm thinking I need to get an underwater camera after seeing those pics...
