Fished the Top Gun 80 out of H&M from June 30-July 4. I have to say right out of the gate I was a little disappointed that we were not going into Mexican waters... but I figured, hey... they know what they're doing. We fished the back side of San Clemente (Tanner and Cortez, I think) and saw a LOT of fish. Bluefin jumping out of the water, and we landed one the first day (I think it was 65-70 lbs). We managed 2 more 30 lb models that day. Next day, same area I believe, we got a few big bonies on the troll. I think we got a small yellowfin that day, too. Nothing else. Last day we went down south and fished 10 miles or so west of the South Island and saw more fish jumping out of the water. Bigger bluefin and smaller yellowfin. We managed a few of the yellowfin and a Mako shark. Very disappointing trip for me. Especially for my first multi-day trip. The crew worked very hard, and never gave up the search. Kept putting us on the fish, but they would not play. There is a lot of bait in the water and they seem content to chase it right now. I got a bonito on the troll, another throwing a jig, and a football yellowfin on a colt sniper. Took home those 3 and 3 other bonies folks didn't want. My wife is Filipina and she and her friends love fresh bonito. Hell if you haven't had it smoked or sashimi with a dash of lime and soy sauce... you're missing out. It's good. Wish I would have done better and had some better news for you, but that's fishing. I figure in a month or so that bait will be gone... and there wil be bigger fish looking for food. At least that's my hope.
