Anyone have any idea if the yellowfin will show up off So Cal this year?

With all the warm water and dodos, I for one am surprised that the YFTs aren't showing up.

Any guesses?

Randy,
They cannot show up here if they all get caught below the border.....

The seiners/choppers are wrapping it all....

Well, that makes sense - up to a point.

They've been operating down there for several years, and they don't get 'em all. Past years we've still had many get up here.

Very strange.

Randy,

There have been some incidental catches of Yellowfin Tuna this season,
but certainly not as many showing as the normal amount. Then again we
have had a better then average amount of Dorado so far, and a plethera
of the once extinct Bonito. I truly believe the reason we are seeing
so many Bonito so far this year is because the seiners are really
drilling the Tuna, and I mean drilling them, and leaving the Bonito
alone for a change.

If I was looking for Yellowfin I'd start at the TANNER and work towards the CORTEZ.
There's a band/trail of the RIGHT TEMP water from the south that pushes north and then inside a little.

My 2 cents . .

Although some leaping tuna were spotted out there early last week, a trip to the banks last Saturday produced no signs of tuna for a few friends of mine.... you never know though, it is a highway out there, fish come and go all the time, imho.

Interesting.

I was aware of few YFT caught out there recently.
No 2 ways about it, fish come and go very quickly sometimes.
