Tuna Everywhere ... 6/5/15
« on: June 05, 2015, 10:28:54 PM »
We've been watching and the computer models had the wind and swell laying down a bit today (Friday) so took a chance offshore for the BFT.  4am departure and the winds were almost nonexistent, even blowing off-shore. Got a full scoop of super-healthy dines at SD Bay and headed out. Sunrise had the breeze starting to pick up ... but the swell wasn't bad. Team Baja boat cuts right through it.

Made our way to the North 9 and saw signs of life, but the water was green and 62. Squall line moved through and actually got some rain with the winds picking up to 10kt and swell to 4ft. Decided to run for the sunlight on the horizon and were the first boat on the spot between N9 and the 182. Freaking birds and crashing fish ... EVERYWHERE ...

We ran and threw and trolled and ran and threw and ran and trolled and ran ... Every time you slid up on breaking fish they sank out and popped up 100yrds away. Frustrating day for sure!! We even had 80+ Pounders roll so close you could hand toss a bait right in the middle ... and nothing. Not a peck.

I have never seen fish crash the surface ... all day long ... in such a huge zone ... and everyone on the radio saying WTF???? Lock Jaw... what a trip....

Anyway - guess this was more of a rant. 80 or so miles on the water today. 65 and blue water out at the 182. Green water at about 16miles and in. Didn't hear of a single fish (tuna or YT) caught all day long. Paddies empty.

Good luck out there. Can't believe how unreal it was for nada!
