The Beginning
Fished the Coronado's today with my Dad. Left Shelter Island around 6:30 with some fog. Fog broke pretty soon after. We skipped on bait and would be fishing irons only. Arrived at north island and got our first fish 30 minutes after arriving. Soon after we get another. We moved east of the middle grounds for a few more fish. In total we got 4 (20-30 lbs) with two coming unbuttoned. These fish were mean and took a good amount of line. Fish were spread out in the water column.

We had all our fish by 9. Metered around for a little longer and decided to call it an early day. Dropped our fish off at Fisherman's Processing. Got 60lbs smoked and 30lbs filleted.

We used only yoyo irons. The Salas 6x in dorado color, recommend by Scott and Pacific Coast Bait and Tackle, and a Tady 4/0 in bird poop color. Used a Shimano Talica 8II with 50lb spectra and a Talica 10II with 65lb spectra. 5 foot leader of 40lb fluro. Paired to a Shimano Terez 80MH.

Great way to spend the morning and afternoon.

Did not get an FMM. Did not see the navy once either. We bring our Mexican fishing licenses and passports.
Very nice! Sea Adventure II only got 4 for the whole boat of 35 passengers. There was a lot of life early in the morning with birds sitting on yellows working the surface. After 9am or so they sunk out and the birds dispersed. Then it seemed like it was follow the San Diego lol. Mexican navy cruised by around noon, looked around for about 15 min and then hightailed it back towards the coast. I don't think they stopped to talk to anyone.
