Good Afternoon Anglers,

We started our morning to the south in the dorado and yellowfin zone. The weather was a bit choppy but we did manage to locate the kelp we were looking for. Once we pulled up, dorado and yellowfin were eager to bite the fly line sardines. We picked up quite a few fish before the kelp went dry. From there we were able to find a good line of kelps that all seemed to have a little bit of fish swimming around them. We are in some beautiful warm water and our weather is steadily improving as the day goes on. Conditions are perfect for some end of summer kelp paddy fishing.

Good evening anglers,

This afternoon we continued our search for dorado and yellowfin on kelps. All throughout the day we found kelps with fish on them. It seemed that every we kelp we found had a little bit of fish on it. So we spent the afternoon picking away at the fish in search of that big kelp that was loaded up.

In the late afternoon it finally happened. We found a large kelp that was holding a huge school of dorado. Everyone had a bent rod, they were even biting the 60lb test! We had a blast and ended the trip with a great stop. It was an extremely fun trip with a great group of anglers. Many thanks to Steve Carson and Penn Fishing Reels for the great sponsorship.

We are on our way in and will be arriving in the morning ready to do it again!
