Where was this caught?

Ha! Ha! I guess it's understood that any yellowtail caught on a kayak outside of La Jolla is impossible!?!? Lol!!! :)

LOL! Basically, anywhere in LA County could be considered at my doorstep. What I will divulge is that there's more bait in the water than I've ever seen. I ran across at least 10 large bait balls with lots of bonito blowing up on them. I didn't have my FF so couldn't tell you if there were any yellows on it. Also had a school of grunion blow up in front of me. With the grunion running this week and the amount of bait in the water and good tides, its time to hit the water guys!!

Looks like outside kings harbor 😬

Nice, I don't need to know where but what did you get em on? ...........bass gear sounds very sporty!

jbl_91762 07-10-2017 04:40 PM

Congrats on Fish!!! I can tell you all this much as far as bait this past Sunday out of NPH. There was none!!! I watched and tried for and hour and nada. Even watched PB's drift all around for over and hour only to head to bait barge and get scoops.

They wouldn't take anything but live bait on light line and a thin wire hook. I threw wax wings, stick baits and irons.

Nice fish. If you don't mind me asking, what rod and reel did you get your yellow on? Like a 200 size reel?

I concur since rat yellowtails are often caught from the Redondo Breakwall with frozen anchovies or shrimps.

Thanks for the response. It must've been a blast on the Lexa 300 amd teramar. For sec I thought you caught that on a 200+ size reel and 7 ft casting bass rod...that would've been badass but challenging to land

:) nice, let us know if you do.

I've caught some pretty big bonito (up to 13 lbs) on a 200 series Curado and 7 ft 2 bass rod, but haven't hooked up yet on a 10-15 lb yellow.

rossman 07-14-2017 03:56 PM

Great job man. That is a good day no matter where you are. When you coming down here again? You are the only one to challenge these grumpy calicos in Asuncion and they are getting lethargic.

On the subject of catching on light outfits, Steveooo and a few of his friends had a year long contest a few years back to see who could catch the largest fish on the Pocket Fisherman or the Snoopy Rod and Reel. There were stories of some melted plastic gears but I always thought that was a cool little challenge between friends.

Hi Ross,
I'm planning to see you in October. Can't wait to piss them bass off again. How's the fishing been?

Fishing for yellows has been less than stellar this spring and summer. We have had a cold water blob here since February. It seems to be warming a bit in the last week so I'm hopeful. Some log barracuda around now and tons of bait all of a sudden; both precursors of a good yellowtail bite. Been having fun with bottom fish lately. Jumbo sheepshead and white fish are abundant and even discovered that rock fish are available that no one pays any attention to.
