    Went out of Dana Point yesterday morning with my friend Todd looking for tuna. We picked up a mixed scoop of macks and sardines at the bait dock and ran straight out to the 277. A little rough on the outside but not too bad. Found some paddies on the way that only held some rat yellows or were dry.

    Once we got to the 277 there was no life. We trolled and looked for any signs of fish but never saw any. After 3-4 hours we decided to head back inside to the 267 since a few guys on the radio said the 209 was dead also.

    Conditions at the 267 seemed better with cleaner water up to 72.5. Worked a few schools of dolphin with birds working but never saw any fish with them. Trolled for a while more looking for paddies but just a slow day.

    Back at the slip about 3:30. Logged 75 miles for the day. Hopefully the fish move in soon. The conditions look good closer in with a lot of bait in tight to the shore. Hope this report helps anyone going out for the weekend. Have a good 4th.

    Mike, we had pretty much the same day Thursday. We got to the 43 from MB at around 7:00 AM. We had seen a number of boats including some of the overnight and multi-day fleet from SD. Boats were fishing the high spot as well as all around and pretty spread out. We did not see any life (birds working, fish crashing or puddleing, dry kelps), nor did we see any fished hooked out of 30 boats with us. We fished that area until 10:00 AM and I was in the Bino's the entire time, man my head hurt.

    We left that area and went outside to the 289. This area looked a little more fishy as we seen more Turns and more kelps, but still no visual sign of fish or sonar marks. We traveled in to the 181 and down the ridge to the upper tip of the 9 and didn't see anything.

    We were back at the dock at 5:00 with good attitudes because we had another good day on the water with great friends.

    Best of luck out there.

    Good effort! Taken that route many times, with and without results.

    Coastal water is warming up. Hoping the dodo's will join the party soon!

    Your report is identical to my experiences the past few times out of Newport. Closer in seems to have all the life (5-7 miles off). Once I get much further out it is a desert.

    Thanks for the report

    I went out of Dana Point late-ish this morning. Ran out to the 287 - saw a few other guys out there - didn't see any fish. Came back just north of the 181. Saw a few birds spread out but working here and there. Stopped at 3 or 4 paddies - had one decent yellow follow a surface iron. Otherwise naught... Nice day - hopefully more fish move up soon!
