Also at 0645hrs, another pair of Dauntlesses spotted one of Nagumo’s carriers, and by 0700hrs had sighted all three. At 0650hrs, the Japanese finally spotted the intruding American aircraft and launched a total of 17 fighters from Shokaku and Zuikaku. The CAP was able to thwart an attack by the original pair of Dauntlesses and another pair nearby. The sighting of the Japanese carriers put them 185–200 miles to the northwest of TF-61. Kinkaid ordered an immediate strike by both carriers. This was already at the edge of his strike range, and to make things more uncertain, the Japanese were headed north and Kinkaid would have to turn away actually to launch the strike.

Kinkaid did not receive the spotting report on the carriers until 1150hrs, and at 355 miles distant from TF-61, the Japanese were well beyond his striking range. Adding to the problem, the wind was coming from the southeast meaning that Kinkaid would have to turn away from the Japanese force to conduct flight operations. This would make it hard for him to close the contact. Kinkaid increased speed to 27 knots to reduce the distance to the reported position. Kinkaid’s staff calculated that it would be possible to make an afternoon strike if the Japanese maintained their course and TF-61 continued to close the range.
