I was out there last Friday and Saturday and the water was good enough....blended blue and blue-green. This was a week ago though and a whole lot can change in that amount of time. Hopefully someone can give you a little more recent report. Good luck if you go!

My guess is that the storm (dollie)that just passed east to west will have pushed alot of blue water back toward LA and mixed up the tub a little. If so i would expect the rigs to be in blue water. To have the best shot , spent $64 bucks on a roffs report and or join Hiltons offshore and look for yourself beofre you head out that far. BTW the Blended blue / blue green water is better for line shy tuna anyway , so hope its blended.

good luck if you go !

I am currently running a Chouest ROV boat out here at Thunderhorse "MC778". The weather and conditions are beautiful.

Seas = 0-1 ft

skies = clear & Sunny

Water = Blue, Blue, Blue.

Curent = .6kts to 040 degrees



We have seen quite a few dolphin, a few tunas "nothing outstanding", and lot of bait.



We will be on location here until next Wednesday.

Unfortunately we are not allowed to fish off of the boat. It gets quite aggravating at times, especially when the tunas are thick!
