This past week I had some time off so I took advantage of the incredible kelp paddy yellowtail bite that seemingly came out of nowhere.

I fished almost every day this week and each trip we scored fish at or over the 30 pound mark.

We caught fish just a few miles outside the 150, in the channel between Catalina, off the usual local banks, and even within only a few miles of the beach. Water temps holding fish were as cold as 61 and has warm as 66.





It really has been a blast.....but I guess I have to try to catch one of those 100+ pound Bluefin now.

It's not even June yet!

Beautiful yellows. I've been waiting for one of your typical posts hahaha. If someone lands a 100+ pounder up here its going to be you. They've been starting to move up the line the past few days. I think they're at the 14 and in the channel and just need to be found...

Good job. Excellent pics. We're those on bait or jigs?


Excited about this season as well as the last few were bad. Thanks again for the report.
