The warm water has pushed well up into the Catalina Channel, and dorado are showing well up into this region — but the best action is off the Los Angeles and Orange County coastline to the west. Freelance out of Davey’s Locker has been running daily trips offshore for dorado and averaging 15 to 25 each trip, with the loss ratio pretty high. On Sept. 11’s trip, there were 25 anglers who had 14 dorado early in the day, but a final count never came in.
