Gave it another try on Saturday morning after an unsuccessful trip a couple weeks ago. Left Newport harbor at 7AM. Ran straight into the SE wind about 4 miles then threw out the Bait O Matics with mackerel pinned under the skirt. Trolled till 11 then pulled up and ran home with our tail between our legs. From the radio it sounds like no one had any action that day. We did see a big pod of what I think where pilot whales. One got us all worked up as it was thrashing around about 500 yards away from us until we realized what it was. That was the highlight of the morning. Also saw what looked like a 20 lb bonito come 3 feet out of the water about 2 miles out of Newport harbor. Still not sure exactly what it was.

Even though it was a wet, windy and no fish where caught, it?s still always great to get a morning on the water.

Tuna,
Thanks for the response. We where down off the Hospital the day before you guys caught that 300lb?er. We had a big one whack both of our baits in half off the bait-o-matics right at sunset but no hookups. Then last weekend we where trolling in that direction but it sounded like no one was having any action.
Just bought my first house and am moving into it this weekend so won?t be out there but thanks for the heads up. Next time out Ill see if I can post to you or I?ll try and raise you on the radio.
Good luck Saturday. Give us a post if you have any success.
