12/10/2016 0:00:00Orcanetwork report: 2:30 PM - I found J Pod and L87 Onyx in San Juan Channel going East. Pretty sure I saw J2, but the weather deteriorated quickly after I found them in-between the Cactus Islands, which concerned me, maybe they were taking a break from the 3'-4' waves... In 16 years I have never seen them in there, hope all is well with them. -Hobbes BuchananSan Juan Channel, WA
