Well, no black cod for Kathy and I but we did manage 7 nice size dorado to aprox 30-lbs and 1 yellow fishing south of the border. Kathy has never surface fished before and was a total champ! She spotted most of the fish, hooked, and landed a bunch! Our findings? Make sure to use quality flurocarbon leaders 4-ft (20# min.) with mutu light circle hooks (1/0) was good, and pay super close attention to those white terns :))) They are the eyes to the fish as most dodos were away from the paddies chasing open-water sauries. Many boats got skunked locked into the paddies. Rough seas but plenty fishable.

I'll second that on the FLOURO.
My recent trip for the Dorado I was using 30 pound BG Clear with 40 pound SEAGAR FLOURO.
The Dorado had no issues hitting the Sardines OR MACS.

my first fish last friday was on 17 pound fluoro carbon leader. my next fish, and next three bites were on straight 25 pound big game line. i think the flouro helps, but i'm more under the impression that when the fish are hungry and want to eat they're gonna eat anything. but i think the local dodo's are still somewhat stuffed on the little bait that's under almost all the paddies still.

then again, two of my bites were on a mackeral being slowly retrieved back to the boat. so who knows.

just my observations from friday.

by the way, mike, i couldn't view your photos on your post. anywhere else i can se them? love to see that big 'tail.
