    Saw that the Mirage has been nailing tuna the last couple days. Are they running south towards hidden reef or have the fish finally made it up to the backside of our islands? Not looking for numbers just general info and somewhere to start. My Radon gets back in the water this Friday so I am itching to prospect.

    They claim Northern Channel Islands. It is always possible that they are somewhere else completely.

    An unnamed pay site did not list their exact location but did list that YFT and Dorado were caught between West end of Cat and The Boot.

    Left CI harbor about 4:30AM Wednesday. Got a scoop of Anchovy then made Squid & macs at HC. Worked south to SBi & 175 spot area where we metered Tuna under the porpose but they did not want to play. Explored the Osborn Bank for Nada then onto the 711 where the SST showed a nice temp break that was not found, just 72 Deg dead water. Worked toward SCi and founsd the right signs and birds near the Mackrel Bank. Ended up with 11 YFT 20-30# class the first day. They were up under the bords then would sound to 60 FT. Caught them on all the baits flylined or on the rubber band rig at 60 Ft. Next day we found scattered scools working under the birds and Hammer head sharks in the same area. We ended up with 6 more YFT then worked home a day early as we were low on ice. Saw tuna breaking about 5 miles south of twin harbor but they would not stay up, possibly BFT. Caught some rat YT under a paddy west end of Cat near the 175.

    I'm not sure where the Mirage found them but well be out exploring the local spots again next weekend.

    Don't people realize more coverage on the tuna actually helps??
    Pelagics Move... A few boats spread out over a few miles working together is key....

    Just read a post on bdoutdoors from a couple guys who fished on the Mirage. They are fishing on the backside of Catalina. Once again, probably the Osborn, 499 area.
