heh, yeah I had heard this too...

I actually competed in the WON Yamaha jackpot tourney this past weekend down in San Diego.

Plan was to run to cortez and mop up on Tuna.... Well nature had a sick joke in store for us all. EVERYONE in the tourney caught crap if anything. The tournament which is won by weight of three tuna combined was won with 86# for three albies.


Less than half the field even CAUGHT a tuna between Friday night and Sunday morning. (The duration of the tournament.)

Then, wouldn't ya know it, Sunday night the bite opened up again!

Oh well... My boat is still down in SD so I'm headed back next weekend to make up for the short stack last weekend.

Side note-- the weather was snotty out there. 4-6' swell, 2-3 wind waves, 10' troughs. And one competitor took a 21' out to cortez in THAT! :eek:

It has layed down a ton, and as you said the bite is back! Grab em while they are cold.
