HERE'S WHERE I WOULD GO TODAY

Marlin Mayhem

The marlin bite has picked up over the last 5 days with reports coming in confirming that a large body of marlin have moved in below the 181 and the 43. Watch for sleepers at grey light, with the hot bite being 2 hours before the slack. The best colors for jigs are- Mean Joe Green & Black & Purple. The best ratio for hook ups are trolled ballyhoo with circle hooks, and throwing live mackerel.

Yellowfin Action

With all the boat pressure over the weekend the yellowfin bite slowed down. A couple of reports this morning from the 9 mile bank said the bite is back on! What’s been working- 20# fluorocarbon leader, size 4 hooks, lively sardines,  short soaks using chum and brailing lots of bait to keep them around the boat. The average size coming over the rail have been 15 – 35lb. But it’s not uncommon to see a few pushing 50lb.

Yellowfin & Dorado

Good reports are coming in of dorado and yellowfin underneath the kelps above the 277. They’re having more success fly lining dines on 30# fluoro and using 1/4oz sliding sinkers with circle hooks!

The 43 Went Off This Weekend!

A lot of reports have come in over the weekend about the bigger grade of tuna showing up on the 43. The yellowfin finally decided to bite, some were pushing over 60lbs. Guys are still catching those tanker bluefin over 200lbs, mainly on the on the kite gear. There’s a nice temp break on the outside of the bank where a lot of fish are holding up. Pay attention to the slack tides and being in the zone is your best bet on getting hooked up!

Local Dorado Coming Up The Line!

A good number of dorado were reported working the outside of the 267. Some pushing over 20 pounds. They were stacking up under paddy’s and keyed in on macks. The water has also clearing up a lot in that zone with tons of bait metered between 100 to 150 feet. Good signs to look for are birds working or sitting on kelp!

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.
