My son and I ran down to the 43 from Dana Pt Sunday 8/24/14. Landed our first YFT on a paddy..then a friend calls me into a good bite. Randy on the REEL TIME..thanks for the call in. Hooked about a dozen fish and only kept six. Super fun fishing with my son. When we were done we were 57 miles from the Pt.

Pretty smooth ride home and 28MPH. Great day on the water!

Nice run Matt, that's the bite we're all looking for!!!

Good luck on Friday Jay.

I just scrubbed this Wed due to the 7-10' from the south and a 10kt N wind. I'm picturing 7-10 with a 2' wind chop in the trough. If it goes to 12kts it will be ugly. Am I a pussy?

Nope -- just wise. Wisdom comes with age my friend. :D

Joe,

if the wind stays light wont be a problem. 17 second south swell is pretty spread out. Easy to see paddys on the south lines. Good luck if you go and it pays to be safe. The fishing will be good until November.

They've been stuck around for what seems like forever.I feel like they cant get the push they need to get over that hump they call pt. conception.
