Dad isn't the most tech savy but he is one hell of a fisherman. Dad caught this 10lb + yellow off the Island Spirit out of Ventura Harbor today (great operations by the way). I know, I know it's a rat to most of you. He caught it on an OG 6' Sabre and a Penn 955 with straight 10lb mono. This is by far his favorite setup.

    That is a decent yellowtail! The "rats" that were clogging the kelp patties are the sub-four pound fish that were spawned only last winter & spring. They grow fast, and that one is probably pushing two years old. And any fighting fish you can get on ten pound test line, which will break if you sneeze on it, is a good fish!

    Good on you for fishing with your dad. And cool that he fishes the way he does. By the way you were at Santa Cruz.
