HERE'S WHERE I WOULD GO TODAY

Marlin at the Osborn Bank

The striped marlin have been up around the Osborn all week and biting the jig consistently. There’s been a nice temp break around the high spot with some BIG yellowtail mixed in as well. Great water conditions!

Above The 43 For Bigger Bluefin

Over the weekend the bigger grade bluefin slid off the 43 and moved above it. Mixed in were the smaller yellowfin that haven’t been on the chew yet. What’s been working well and guys had a lot of success is using the kite with the Yummy Flyer to get the 100 to 200 plus pound bluefin to bite. The tuna are still holding up in the greener water. Watch for the tern birds working to get an idea where the school are.

Cuda Crazy

Reports have been coming in all week that a good size school of barracuda have been around the 150 area, popping up from time to time under the tern birds. They’re having a lot of success throwing iron and also working the yo-yo when they go down.

Dorado Action On The Local High Spots

A large percentage of paddy’s off the 267-279 and other high spots near by are holding dorado.  They’re just settling in and starting to eat. If they don’t hit your bait right away, try slow trolling a dine 100+ feet behind your boat. Another good tactic to get them to eat is chumming small pieces of sardines or what ever you have in bait tank, good luck!

Dorado Are Showing Up

Reports are coming in today.. still a lot of green water up and down the coast, but holding lots of fish/tuna. A decent sized school of dorado were found during the morning slack tide below the 267 on nice temp break, but no takers. They threw iron, dines & chunked to no avail. Water temps in that zone went 75.3. Good luck and tight lines.

Bluefin On The 209

Conditions on the 209 over the past week have looked really good with lots of  bird schools and bait around, but without any fish. Over the weekend all that changed. The bluefin finally showed up, and several have been caught on the popper.

Yellows Are Showing Up On The Kelp

The bigger grade of yellows are starting to show up offshore on the kelp, mixed in with the schoolie sized yellows.  A lot of these fish are being taken on fin bait, but the bigger models have been caught on macks! The giant bluefin bit over the weekend from Oceanside down to the 43, but died on Monday. Most of the big boys of been taken on the kite, that way you can step up on leader size. Good luck out there!
