We fished offshore yesterday in very calm seas.  The pilchards are still really hard to come by, but we had some other live baits. We spent some time trolling with dead baits and artificials, looking for Blackfins and Sailfish, but we were only catching Bonitas. We started live baiting on a wreck, but the live baits were not that affective either. We had a few bite offs, but the Blackfins never showed up.  We caught a really nice Mutton Snapper on the jig on the first drop and we hooked a few other things on the jig after that, but they either got sharked or they took us into the wreck.  The Jig seemed to be working, but we just couldn't get anything past the predators.
