Default Yellowfin on 9/10/00

Fished sunday out of Dana Point from 1pm till dark. Ran to some numbers from prior week where we had ran into a foamer of Yellowfin. About half a mile south of the 279 we started to see breaking fish with porpoise. There was an incredible volume of fish streching from just south of 279 to just short of the 209. At one point we counted ten seiners all around us. The fish were moving very fast and were difficult to keep up with, not to mention the seiners bearing down on any large showing of fish. My nine year old son was the angler and went one for two. Our fish was only about 15lbs., although we saw larger fish busting through the bait. Water temp was 70.3 degrees and progressively greener the farther south we went. It was a little windy at the start but laid down nicely as the day progressed. Both of our strikes came on a Ho #2 Mini in black and transparent blue. Stomach contents of fish was micro anchovies. Hopefully the seiners will leave some fish for the weekend.
