way to go!

Great job Erik! That is one home guard YT! A YT over 50lbs is hard to top.
Time to start looking for a barn door halibut!

It has been a long, long time since I have posted. I have long since lost the touch when it comes to the keyboard, but here I go. I heard about this fish and had to check the site myself...

Holy crap!!!!! Eric that thing is a pure beast of a fish!!! You have successfully nailed the two hardest critters to catch in La Jolla. A white seabass and oh ya a 50 lb yellowtail! People are foaming at the mouth for a shot with one of those bad boys, and I am one of them.

Simply put,"Damn!!!!"

Congrats dude! A true wall hanger.

Thanks a lot everyone! And Kevin I really appreciate everything you taught me! For those of you who are getting into this awesome sport, you really need to check out seasamurai.com and book a trip with him. The experience you'll gain is invaluable and the techniques he teaches really do work!

That being said, it feels really good to finally got this one under my belt. My wife said she was jealous that a fish made me smile that much. I would have been ecstatic to catch a 15 pounder...but a belly-hooked 52 pounder...a little luck never hurts I guess.

you can hang up your rod. You have seen the top of the mountain and it is good. Many on this board will fish LJ all their lives and not catch a 50# YT.
