    I've caught a few on the troll in the past Stevo!

    https://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/threads/bft-36-nm-from-pl.504775/

    I lost a troll plug on 40#, sliced the line in seconds, and that was the thickest string I had. I should have thrown a flat fall... I threw poppers and irons, into, through, around the boils for two hours... The fish were all around my boat with the bait stuck to the hull. Got bumped a couple of times. I'm over how foolish these fish have made me feel the last two years. I thought I was just going out to drink beer and fish skulpin!

    Three yellowtails were caught by the Native Sun today too, so they are out there and biting also. They claim the fish were 12-25 lb fish.

    Just got back from a quick trip and fished the Point Loma area, about two miles from the point and there were football fields of sardines. Bait everywhere! Pretty crazy to see that much bait near the point in january...

    I thought about riding a boat today. Ended up paddling out of Oceanside a little after noon and fishing till dusk. I was the guy on the L2Fish blue and white catamaran SUP if any of you were on the Electra or the few other boats that passed me on the way back in.

    Wanted to paddle out a few miles. I turned back after a mile and half, maybe two at most. The tide and swell weren't in my favor. Was getting pushed southward rapidly every time I stopped paddling. Pulled a NE bearing and drift fished around the three jetties until dusk. No bites. Never fished bait, only lures. An absolutely great day. Pretty exhausted at the end. Saw a good amount of bait in the water.

    Good luck to you guys that are chasing them tomorrow!!!
