AWESOME!!!!

also on a side note: since you're on a Hobie I would recommend you use the mirage drive to your advantage. When you see color I would recommend you start pedaling, this will get the fish to lay flat and keep you from having to muscle them in. Fish do not like to have their heads out of the water, they will thrash and pop the hook.

Anyway, congrats again on a nice winter time LJ YT!!!

That's one helluva nice yellowtail! And from a 'yak using 15# test? Incredible.... CONGRATS!

I'm not familiar with Hookup bait. Looked at their web site and it seems deadly for catching Calicos. I wonder if it will work on Cabrilla down in Baja Sur. I'll have to order some and give it a try.

My paranoia is taking over. Two reports of hookup bait YT in LJ, can't seem to avoid the conspiracy theory in my head that this is a well planned commercial for hookup baits. Not accusing anyone, just sayin'...

Squid bite

Since I was catching squid out there 2 weeks ago, im guessing they look like the squid the yellows are currently feeding on.

It's true I did catch a yellowtail with the hookup bait but if you read at the post we spent 2 hours find bait with no success. I had these lures and got lucky. But it's also true that they don't last at all, I spend so much money on them catching a variety of species but, in my case, they are only good when new. I buy them from their website and never got anything free from the them not even a sticker. Lol

I have caught a few yellows (all rats) with Hookup Baits. A couple of months ago I caught 2 rat yellows, a short WSB and 2 keeper calicos in about 10 casts. I also caught a 25" calico in November. They get bit, but they do not last.

Duckbutter, how did you catch it? Were you deadsticking it, or bouncing it off the bottom?

Baja Marty, I think the grouper will definitely bite them, but they will likely tear them apart. Also, they take a while to sink. Until recently, the heaviest one was 1.5 oz. I was stoked to see they came out with a 4 oz, but I almost fell over when I saw the $20 price tag. The Anchovy color looks like a sardina, so that would work. I caught two nice ones on an Anchovy Flat Fall. I love catching them!

Jlabs, Iím not too familiar with the terminology. Iím pretty new to everything so what is dead sticking? I was slow trolling with the 1oz bouncing it around 5 ft off the bottom. I also agree the hookups do not last but I have a lot of action on them especially with the bay bass. To me they are worth the price tag just because Iím pulling way more fish with them.
