Hey got one peanut YFT off the ponies 3.5 miles south of catalina around noon. 70 degree water. Was at island dragging rapalas saw big splash way off. No wind so ran out there mega pod of ponies. Threw blk/prle marauder out. 2 mins later bit!! Small YFT. Worked group for another few hours big bait marks. Fish was full of fresh squid. I'll try to attach photo. I'm on mooring in avalon enjoying cocktail so who knows if I'll get it posted. But great water south of island. Coming over all paddies loaded with micro tails and blue perch!! Maybe finish rite will upload for me. I can't from phone.

    Sitting on boat in avalon rocking drinking a beer. Water is 70 in harbor! Pretty cool! There was lots of bait balls on the meter in the ponies around 100 feet. So maybe with some bait they would bite! Shocked the hell out of me a yellowfin in November so close to catalina! Maybe mackerel bank is worth a look with flat weather. They might be there??

    I did a little dance after bouncing the fish shouting it's god Damn November and we just got a YFT near Catalina!!

    Good luck!!

    I have to second this! When is the last time you can remember this happening?

    Around 2008+ or-, the week before thanksgiving. Caught about eight of them with buddy. You could fit four in a five gallon bucket and their tail barely reached over the top! Never forget that picture. Every time I see the corona add with bottles in a bucket it reminds me of it.

    Fantastic find and catch triton!
