Holy moly was it hot and humid today. Starting today early the sweat was on. My mom brought the little one down and the poor little girl was sweating worse than me. She probably doesn't care though. We left on our annual Bogart 2 day trip. So we fished a little this afternoon and we'll fish tomorrow. We got a couple tanks of anchovy today with just a few sardine mixed in. We have a bit of mackerel left over that we'll use. We fished for yellows this afternoon. We reached the honey hole at 4:00. Of course conditions did a complete 180. Current wise. The water was still blue and warm but the current was opposite to what the yellers have enjoyed here as of late. So we saw no sign of yellowtail. After a couple anchor jobs we gave up on them and anchored in tight to the kelp and we caught some assorted rockfish and bass and such. Now we're headed out to who knows where. I have a couple places in mind. I'm going to wait and here the evening reports from the other boats before deciding.
There is a few things as of late I wanted to tell y'all about that I forgot to. I finally saw the green flash! Kind of cool I guess. I wasn't looking for it this time. Maybe that's the ticket. I just happened to look over and poof, the sun turned green for a flash. The lightening show the other night was amazing. Especially the part I missed while I was in bed sleeping. And we saw a wave cloud I think. I think it was a wave cloud. It looked like a wave rolling through. Or a side ways tornado. There was 0 wind, and all the sudden that thing came through and it got super windy but just for 30 seconds or less and then it was gone and the wind went back to 0. Pretty cool I thought. Done.
After another slow day offshore. We have decided to make Monday and Tuesday an island trip. We will be targeting yellowtail, kelp bass, barracuda and we even heard of a bluefin sighting today. Summer island tackle consists of a 25 lb bait rod, a 40 lb yo-yo rod, your favorite jig stick and your favorite kelp bass rod. Passports are required. Reservations are light but both trips are a definite go.
Jodyyyyy! We did it! We got all fixed up on dorado today. You got all fixed up on dorado today. Everyone reading this got all fixed up on dorado today. It all went down after lunch. We drove by something floating, stopped the boat, and we saw colors everywhere, they were in the air, they were all around us. It was my first wide open dorado bite while listening to Poisons "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" playing in the back ground. So scratch that off the list. A tremendous amount of pressure has been lifted off of everyone on board. And yes, we celebrated with a cigar. Mmm. Other then that we watched a couple movies while we rigged tackle, Charlie did a bunch of laps around the boat, the Jer Bear slept all day and the rest of everyone just relaxed and enjoyed the outstanding weather once again. One more full day of traveling. After we go to bed tomorrow, we will be waking up at our destination. See you all tomorrow.

This past winter the San Diego family lost one of its most beloved members. Mike Morrison known as “Iron Mike” was a dedicated regular who loved chasing bluefin and always kept positive outlook whether he caught one or not. Today his brother landed a 145 pounder and it had Mikes name written on the belly. This fish was one of 18 landed. The other 17 were 60-80 pounders.
