We left the ramp around 6am headed out to find bait. Searched for an hour with no bait to be had, we shifted gears from live baiting off kites to trolling. We headed east and dropped in our spread in around 100 feet. We put a purple Yozuri Bonito down deep and skirted Ballyhoo out. We headed south zigzagging between 100 and 400 feet, just south of the Juno Pier on the inside of the fleet working Kingfish the Yozuri starts taking line. I do a quick check for a head shake(Bonito) to determine if I was going to hand it off or reel in a decent fish. No shake was felt so I am the hero and stay on, only to reel in a good size Bonito. Snap a pic and off he goes to get in someone else’s spread.
We reset the spread and turn back north. We find scattered weeds all over the place reeking havoc on our baits in around 400 feet, we start heading in to find clear water. Just north of the inlet in 167 feet the black and purple islander goes off, a quick fight and a 9 pound cow Dolphin goes on ice.
Reset the spread and within 15 minutes the same black and purple islander goes off, an 8 pound bull Dolphin comes aboard. Once again reset the spread, We trolled around for another 30 minutes as the seas were building to 3-5 feet we decided to call it a day. Back at the dock by 1pm . All in all a good day
Nice work guys!
