Where did all the tuna go???

In our freezers yesterday. LOL :D LOL

The 181, 182, 43 lately

South of the border sportboats?

Several boats fished south and only found small yellowfin and dorado FYI
Warm water at the 182 would be my guess.

That would be a bad guess! The 182 was dry.

Today was big time void of tuna catching (did see some) for almost everyone fishing in US waters right up to the beginning of the 33 line. Further up North and past there were lots of Dorado seen on kelps, and a few (very few) tuna caught around the 181.

I'm sure there were a few more, but I only heard of 3 tuna caught today. The talk was definitely how few tuna were taken.

The unknown fisherman:p:

Take a good look at tempbreak and their 1 day composite sst. There are several killer tempbreaks out there. Try one of those. I know it is harder than chasing party boats, but so much more satisfying to find your own fish.

Try halfway between the 181 and 182. 3 degree temp break.

    Not sure if you're talking to me but if so......

    I'm talking the areas I said. Did someone catch some fish...... Oh I'm sure some did, but the upper 9, and the 182 and along the ridge were very dead action for "Catching" tuna today. Matter of fact the tuna fishing was very slow in most US water areas today.

    The thing you must remember, a good body of tuna can move 50 miles or
    more overnight, and temps change with currents.Lot can happen in 24hrs!
    Anyway good luck fishing everyone...I'll just watch from the bleechers. LOL

    Friend had a charter on the Limitless today and texted me a report as they were passing Catalina on the way in: 33 YFT and 3 BFT. No skiffs followed them, nor were they harassed by the dreaded boiling outdrive boats.

    I don't think I've ever forgotten that ;)

    There was tuna seen today in the areas mentioned, but they just didn't want to play today for the most part. today was much more of a dorado day for most boats fishing US waters further North.

    Was curious where the scores came today on alot of the boats. There are alot of fish in front of dana to Diego but tough biters. The sport boats are fishing more of the 277 to mackerel I believe.

    Went out to tuna catching at nice temp break off tamarack, could see the steamer while bleeding tuna and dodo.

    SO MUCH more gradifing to find a school or schools and paddies by yourself.

    Well we did manage to get 1 tuna on the boat yesterday but my buddy still considered it a skunk bcuz it did not fight...i saw my buddy's line coming back towards the boat really fast and told him to wind fast u got a fish on, when he got all the slack out, the fish was on my gaff took probably 1min and a half to get on the boat. Fish didnt even take any line so there wasnt a fight. So thats why he say were still skunked. Buddy boat did manage to get a marlin on his boat. We was northwest from the lower 9 plus lots of small tunas but no takers
