Left MB with a nice scoop around 430 and headed for the 425; arrived around 615 and put the marlin jigs out. went a touch south then headed for the 371 and found a buddy on a paddy a little inside and below the high spot but he only found rats so it was on down to the Hidden for us. Weather wasn't too bad going down to the the islands but it built into solid 10-12 kts and whitecaps by the 425. Halfway to the Hidden we scared a school of 30-40 dodos that skipped over the surface away from the boat; 4 miles further we kicked up and 60-80 dodos that looked like an army in the parade marching over the water. No takers on the jigs however. Checked out 4-6 paddys along the way for no takers on jigs or bait. Went 2-3 miles beyond the Hidden and at 1030 made the call to head back up to the 101-425 area for marlin.Once again halfway between the Hidden and the 101 we got a double on the marlin jigs but one of the 7-8# dodos fell off. Continued to short of the 101 where the water started to cool off so we went back over the 425 and headed for the 302. More paddys, no fish. Just below and inside the 302 while driving through a cut up kelp minefield one of the lines pops out of the outrigger and I assumed it was kelp but low and behold this had a little fight to it. We ended up with a small Short Billed Spearfish, the 4th one on my boat over the years. We continued towards the 224 but tired of the constant beating we bent it in for home and that was our day. Wish I had better info for you I just don't know where all the Dodos went in one day.
