    Was fishing today off mission bay good sardines was told dodo were 3-4 out yesterday by bait guys headed to 9 mi didn't see much on the way so headed nw
    3- 4 mi and found a huge open water school of dodo saw over 100 they were on microbait ( it piled under our boat) they were jumping but no eating. tried everything but only got this one and ii soaked out about 60 yards or more...saw a paddy ;later dorado under the boat wont eat. trolled all day too no strikes
    water in the low 70's a bit lumpy and windy but fishable all this action 5-10 straight off Mission Bay Good luck weekend warriors dodo.jpg

    It floats
    When they are on small stuff like that, you can get em on light gear, small crocs, cast master or lead head grub. You can also chunk up the sardines and fly line small chunks. And, if you catch one, just reel it close and keep the rod in the rod holder buttoned down. The school will stay with the one hanging
