Via West Coast remote SDRs, all loggings after 0700 UTC 26 April 2017:

6609 kHz USB - Spanish language...I know this is an aero frequency but sounded like freebanders/fishing boat chatter (!!!)
6675 kHz USB - Spanish language, "I copy you" and other radio-related chatter.  Possibly freebanders - very busy frequency
6677 kHz USB - Asian-sounding language - very difficult copy due to Spanish traffic on 6675 USB
6725 kHz USB - Asian-sounding language, similar to traffic heard on 6725 USB but weaker
6729 kHz USB - Asian language, busy channel several stations in QSO
6785 kHz USB - after 6786.6 LSB disappeared, Asian-sounding traffic showed up
6786.6 kHz LSB - Portuguese, possibly fishing fleets
6790 kHz USB - Unknown language, very busy but weak signals.  Reminds me of "classic peskie" chatter, possibly Portuguese but not 100% sure
6838.5 kHz USB - Unknown language, Asian-sounding.  At least two stations having a QSO.  Decent signal strength 
6884 kHz LSB - Spanish, active around 0709 UTC
6895 kHz USB - Spanish, weak
U.S. East Coast, various HF/VHF/UHF radios/scanners/receivers
