Launched at 630 with my good buddy Michael and headed north towards del mar to get some rockfish. We skipped getting bait and were at my spot shortly, the seas were amazing today.

Fishing was a little slow at first, but once the tide shifted things picked up and we put a nice limit of reds and sheepshead on the boat. Fish bit squid well and we fished 150 to 170ft of water.

Once we got our fill we started searching for the yellow kind. There was zero surface signal today so we metered around looking for marks. After about an hour of nothing promising I got a couple scratches near the bottom in 130ft. We both dropped down and I get bit almost instantly followed by Michael hooking up. We landed both fish pretty quickly and decided that was enough.

My fish came on the mint/ white JRI 66 and the other fish came on a 100 gram sniper. Another fun day and back to the ramp by noon. Good luck and stay safe!

Nice work and persistence! Great grade of fish as well! Did you notice if the water color was any better where you found them versus the rest of the area?

How did you guys do?
Thanks Cody! Congrats on finding and catching those big YT so close to home! You’ve got SKILLS!

Lots of nice-looking paddies and a few good meter marks between the 9 and the 371 but didn’t see any BF breezers or foamers. Gave it all we had on the YT we saw but no success. Consolation prize was wide open 6-8 pound Bonito in the Coronados on the way home.

Any idea what this was? Saw YT swimming on this paddy between 9 and 371 but not this many.
