That's funny we had the same kind of little yellow bird hanging out with us yesterday as well. We were about 12 miles W/NW of La Jolla, saw a mix of YFT and BFT (all footballs aside from maybe a 30lber), just couldn't get them to stick. Came inside and fished La Jolla, it was dead! Good exploratory trip, cleaned up on the mylar balloons though, could limited out on them!

Nice try, Simon.

Most folks believe they're going to horse these fish to the boat. Wrong answer, finese is best. Pull too hard and a it pulls the hook.

Next time mang. Good luck, you'll get yours.

Hey Carl, that was Seagor Blue Label flouro. That was free with a reel purchase I made awhile back. I don't believe Blackwater would have blown out like that
