Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you!

Well the weather was better than last weekend becuse of actual sunshine!



I call this sunny with a high probability of Dolphins. Yes, the Dolphins were abundant today in La Jolla. I found myself in a school that just would not stop. After what seemed to be 15-minutes of being surrounded I decide to take some video. Naturally, the action diminished once I started recording. Click here if you like Dolphins!

As for fishing, it started out tough making-bait and then the doggies stole my first batch of greenies. Fortunately, I found a couple more schools of the green kind mid-day. Nice to hook-up with some mega-macs and sizeable Barracuda as well to pass the time.

The highlight of the day was my PB Yellowtail catch. This guy was 38-inches and 31-pounds! He was down on the corner at about high noon and I think he swallowed a basketball! Thanks to fellow yakers for the on-the-water and beach photos!

Enjoy the fish porn. I'm going to dinner now. Big Yellowtail collar and ribs on the grill!

At the beach:


On The Water:


On The Butcher Table:


On The Yak:


...well my fish scale only goes to 25-lbs. It easily bottomed out. So instead, I used the old stand on the bathroom scale and then stand on it with the fish trick. Without showing my math and the revealing my weight...this guy was 31-lbs!

I'm still smiling!

Very nice fish. I've heard those dogs have been relentless lately. Glad you stuck one!

Congrats on the PB. I'm still waiting for my 30+lb Yellow on the deck, unfortunately I've lost a few during the fight.
