    Went out on the Patriot... Full Day to Catalina. Beautiful weather across the channel... stayed overcast till we got about 2 miles from the island, and then it was bright hot sunshine the rest of the day. We fished from about a 1/2 mile East of Avalon to Whites Landing... back and forth. And it pretty much looked like Copper Canyon at The River. At one point... there were so many boats packed around the Native Sun that Im not even sure how they were fishing? It was madness for sure. BUT... the fish are there... just getting them to bite is still the trick. AND keeping boats out of your chum line LOL. The birds tell the story. Just follow them... and watch for the pop ups. I think we only got 8 YT on the boat... with assorted bass, bonito, and Cudas' mixed in.

    I got 2 good YT bites all day... landed the first one, and then handed the second off to my Little Buddy, who is still learning the finer points of flylining bait. WHICH IS NOT EASY. He proceeded to get WORKED on this fish LOL, so I had to finish the kill. But he did great!! These fish are really healthy and strong. Stuffed with bait. Both fish coming on a sardine, Butt Hooked Flyline. Im one of those Guys that if my bait doesnt pull line steadily for 10 seconds as soon as it hits the water... and I dont get bit... I pull it and get another one. No soaking for me. I use ALOT of bait. Both good bites I got were within 10 seconds of casting, 25lb Izor XXX over 50lb Maxcuatro - Trinidad TN14 on a Seeker Pinhead PH36. If you Guys like a 270H-8 for 25lb... youll love a PH36 if youve never fished with one. Not quite as fast as the 270, with more pulling power. Awesome rod.

    Fun day overall... hot as hell... but we got what we came for. A little extra hard work needed, but you cant ask for much more than that right? :git:

    Great job, dad! I remember my sons first yellow. He's never forgotten it. I'm going tomorrow, was the bite best on sardines or jigs? Thanks in advance.

    Nice job on getting the fish through the headaches. No point in long soaking a bait that does not swim in the first place.
