Got Squid from Nacho this morning. Was thinking to shoot over to Catalina but stop by the Farm first and give it a little try. Long story short, Between my son, Brother in law and myself, We went a miserable 1/23 on these brute yellows. Yes you heard my right! 1 for 23 is my worst record ever!!!!! Breaking 30lb like nothing. Landed only one, didn't have a scale, but feels like 25lb to 30? If it wasn't for my work calling in for an emergency job, I would of stay. Left them biting at 11am. If you guys go, I would bring nothing below 30lb as they ate the flyline squid no problem.

Try changing your 30 pound mono. When it gets old, it breaks easier.

Great job on the yellow! Even though it was tough, you at least got 1 and had lots of action!

1:23 There has to be a learning curve there; button down the drag, try a different set up. Something! OMGosh - if I could only be so lucky. :p

Some of the guys who have never fished there don’t understand quite what it is. Think of fishing yellows literally in the middle of the kelp. Toss your bait out and let it swim through the stringers. Except all these stringers are cable

Yup, I’ve eaten my fair share of humble pie at that place

At least you didn't have to drive all the way to Cat. Here comes the gang bang for the next 5 days

Run it like they do on the Gulf Coast. Fisherman on the stern live bait fly line, gets a bite and signals to the captain to hit the gas and yank the fish out. Then you can fight the fish at the open.
