I booked an overnight trip on the Cortez out of San Diego in search of yellowtail and mahimahi a while ago. I managed my first yellowtail and couldn't get a strike on the mahis but I could see them everywhere. Here are a few pictures of the trip. The Hamachi kama and Hamachi sashimi was awesome! Looking forward to pulling some more up hopefully with my speargun the next time.

Way to go Alex. I'm sure you'll be back out there fishing again in the future. The weather and ocean sure look good.
