I borrowed my friends boat today and took out 2 of my wife's friends' husbands today to the 150. They initially had plans to go lake fishing and wanted me to go with them but I changed their minds. They were both noobs to ocean fishing. one of them's father passed away recently from cancer and I knew he used to fish all the time with his father freshwater. They would always tell me how they never catch anything despite their love of fishing. I told him we had a decent shot. We launched out 7am out of pedro. We got the smallest scoop of pinhead deans today. I was a little worried about our bait but it turned out to be fine. Upon arrival we stopped at a spot away from everyone else. Shortly after my friend hooks up on dropper loop. It was his first yellow. 20#s or so. shortly after he hooks and lands another in the mid 20s. Right after that I get one pushing 30#s. After that it was dead. I only saw one boat next to us hook and land a yellow but that was it. All fish were caught on dropper loop 40# mono no floro. Im so glad I was able to help my friend get his first yellow. I know hes hooked after this.

Went out to SCI last week, mostly dinker yellows
(5 to 6 pounds) and LOTS of big hungry Sea lions, stay around the 150, though crowded that's where the lunker yellows are!
