    20180112 Checked the weather all week and decided Saturday around 10ish was the best time to get out. Saturday seems to be the only fishable day. Day started off bad with the t-top on my Logic 210cc damn near blowing off. Ripped that thing off and put it in the bed of my truck ( It wasn’t stopping me). Grabbed some of the best bait I’ve seen in Dana with the idea of heading to the 267 then north to the 14. The man at the bait dock gave us a tip of some YT being caught just south of the 267 on a big paddy. Took off 20 knots in some rain to make up time. Rain stopped and man was it a beautiful day. Wasn’t exactly glass but pretty close. Took a minute to find the paddy with bitters on it. About the third patty with visible fish and my buddy hooked up immediately. Dropped one in myself and got bit too! Both YT got in the boat and I send out about fly line. It wasn’t in the water for a minute and I was on again. Passed the rod off to my buddy who wasn’t having any luck on a top iron. Got all three fish in the boat when the bite just stopped. Fish finder picture shows where the school kinda just disappeared. Then started to mark something that looked like a single bluefin (no picture of the fish finder) decided it may have been a deep yellow I dropped a yo-yo. I got bit, wasn’t fighting like a YT or bluefin. Got it to the boat and it was a 5-6 foot mako. I couldn’t believe it. The school of yellows didn’t want to come back up, I released the mako and watched it swim off. Damn this just about beat itself to death on my deck. Overall good day on the water. The yellows are still out there!

    Side Note: trolled on some white terns that were clearly crashing on something. Watch a few boils as I was trolling through them. Seemed like the blues everyone was going crazy about but never got a good look at them. Idk maybe my eyes were just tired!

    Very nice fish there. Good timing on your part during some marginal weather today. Congratulations.

    Too many fair-weather fishermen miss opportunities like this.

    Great report, great results for your effort! If I still had by boat I’d be out there too.

    I think they just added a range of 12 fathoms to the high spot. A difference of around 70 feet. Which makes sense from the pics.

    Yep, the NOAA chart printed in 1975 has it marked as 267 fathoms. In 1976, it’s marked as 279, but they added a couple other soundings that are shallower, and it’s been that way ever since.
