We saw plenty of fish today, and had to work hard to get a bite. All the fish were caught at depth of 180 – 240 feet with a heavy torpedo sinker, 50-80 pound test, a circle hook and a live nose-hooked sardine.
The morning was slow even though we saw plenty of fish. But we did land the jackpot fish. Paul C. from San Diego caught a 137 pound bluefin. Then there was a lull until about 3 pm when we found a school of more bluefin. We have been drifting for awhile with a chance to catch another few fish. Here’s Paul with his winner.

We are on the bluefin tuna grounds today. We departed on our first trip of 2020 last night!
