Spotting fish south of Islas San Benito

On April 10 we were travelling south from Islas San Benito on a whalewatching trip and the crew and I spotted an area of birds diving. As we approached, we saw 20-30# bluefin tuna jumping! Upon further observation, we saw balls of yellowtail on the surface as well. This was in 65-degree, blue water about 280 miles south of San Diego. This got us pretty excited about the upcoming fishing season. Some of our colleagues agree that this could be a productive spring and we hope to have an early start this year.
