8/11-12/08 — Lindenkohl Canyon

Had an overnighter Monday-Tuesday and headed off to the Lindenkohl canyon.

We trolled from 4pm until dark without a touch despite a decent number of flying fish and squid down deep.

We set up for the chunk on the southwest corner of the lindy but the chunk bite never materialized. At 11pm we hooked and fought a big sword(~200-225lbs) but pulled the hook just under the boat after about 45 minutes.

Just before dawn we had a group of 4 small sailfish chasing baitfish and squid in the underwater lights… we caught one in the dipnet to check it out and snap a picture before letting it go.

On the morning troll we had a couple of shots of small yellowfin, landed three keepers to 30 pounds and released a couple of throwbacks..

Rough ride home into a stiff NW wind.
