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!!

Thanks for posting

Nice fish.

I would not get on that six pack, but I applaud his effort.

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

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
