Skunked. No hits! Chris Larsen joined me for the day. We trolled all day at 2.5 mph 40-80 down with cable baiter anchovies, FBRs with & without flashers, hoochies, Apexes, flashers on our downrigger balls. We launched at Westside with no line. 6 hours (7-1), 67 miles. 3 locations (SW of Bodega 8 miles at 300 depth, Elephant Rock 60-80, the only action we saw was off the Russian River, 270, N 38.24 W 123.12). Sunrise 6:08, % moon visible 9. Bodega Bay Harbor tides: L 4:27 0.0, H 10:40 4.4, L 4:06 1.6. Water 55.9-56.8*, major jelly fish from 70-270 depths everywhere. Air 50-76*. Sky clear. Wind WNW 6 mph, wind waves 1 at 13 seconds, swell 1 at 15 seconds, we motored out at 18 mph and in at 23-26 mph/4,200 RPM. It was as beautiful and calm (FAC) as it gets. A few boats out deep, South, most off the Russian (over 40 boats working the area). Channel 9 reports sounded like a slow day for most, limits for a few. Saw what we think was a Pilot Whale. Thanks for the company Chris.
