    It was a long day, I was up again a 6 and felt like I was hit by a truck, man I love tuna fishing.
    At least we heard the reels scream.
    Bayside reported 2-15 fish from the 601 but the radio was pretty bleak at 2:30 when we left with just a few fish caught. You had to work for them. Our temp gauge was off a couple of degrees, which will throw your whole game off, but I'm eating my first fresh tuna of 2013, I can't complain too much.

    Only big numbers was chummin fish up same area.
    Couple weeks ago buddy marked lot's of fish deep but could only get one jigging 80' down. I think these fish are running deep in this colder water and maybe slower troll and even downriggers. Heard this works pretty good.
    If I run this week I will do this and see what happens.
    How many times do we all mark fish deep but the fish have no interest in surfacing.

    You're probably right on the fish down deep. we kept marking fish 80-100 feet down, we saw a lot of bait but no takers, the water was mixed up with different temps, and not a hard break, it was hard to know where they were in the big ocean, the boat that had more fish were in the same area, but a little further north of us.

    I really do not think the main body of fish is on the sea mounts yet...if you look at recent SST's there is another break from 58-60 degrees 80nm offshore. I think this is where the biomass of fish is. The water is just a little too cool on the inside IMO for this time of year to hold significant numbers of fish. Albacore will come up from 300ft deep easy. I dont think its a matter of them holding deep...the #'s just arnt in that colder water.

    Completely agree with you Karl.....that mass of fish will be with that warmer, cleaner water in the second plume. Should be a couple weeks before that water shows up a little closer within striking range. The early fish should start to slowly migrate north and will probably circle back to that outer plume. If they do, we should see some really good numbers of fish in mid-late September. You will definitely see some of the bigger models hanging in that greener water after the larger schools move through later in the season. Hopefully the weather is going to cooperate this year and bring the bite to the central coast that we had 3 years ago. Cross your fingers!!!!!!!!

    well there are some good numbers coming in, now at the 451 +30 fish for some boats including a 9 way with all landed, there were fish there Karl, it just seemed you needed to chum em up. We'll get on more fish if the weather works with us. I don't think it's too early, they are here, you just need to go out and get em.

    We ran out to the guide got three early in the morning at grey light it was slow for a few hours we kept working at it and ended up getting six more while trolling our way back to the 601
    we ended up with nine total 4 or 5 were caught on the rapalas weather was flat calm
    there is a lot lot of life at the 601 but all of our fish were from the guide area and a little north west of the guide
