Sucks about the bait, but obviously the sniper was getting it done, so oh well. Great story, loved the report, keep em coming!!
Side note, how did you retrieve the sniper? jigging motion? slow reeling? etc
Welcome to CA! You're catching on quickly! White swimbaits definitely work. A lot of guys here fish bait, squid being the mainstay for the seabass. Some guys also use heavier irons at times when anchored.
Yellowtail are very popular with surface irons like a Tady 45 and live sardines/mackerel...
Love the video! Please keep these coming!!
Was it just me or was it tough to see the bottom in the video? It would be fun to see what exactly is down there. Maybe you were hovering the drone 10ft up from the bottom, etc?
