Yesterday I got a chance to go fishing without a camera crew aboard the Triton to Catalina Island. All day long we found plenty of fish, but they were all small. We landed all of the legal size calicos on live sardines and the yellows came on both fly lined sardines and cut squid. At the end of the day our skipper took us to the back side of the island and I switched over to a 4oz B52 bucktail with a whole dead squid pinned on. On my second cast I hooked up with this 30 pound yellowtail. The rod was a Californian sold only at Turner's Outdoorsman with 20 pound Izorline and a Penn 975 reel. It was a great way to end the day for me.

No they're aren't they're gay. Dan job having one of the deckhands catch that fish for you and getting your bucktail jig in their for the photo op.
Back in the day when the shogun started doin winter bass fishin at Clemente when everyone else was rockfishin there were pretty much 2 artificials tipped with squid that outfished everything else 10 to 1 Tady tlc (green and yellow)and white buck tails... They are far from gay you just have to know how to fish em...

The ol squid'n'jig.
Uses to be great for seabass also. Squid or two pinned on a white tady 4/0 or white bucktail sitting still on the bottom while brailing or jigging squid.

It's sad that there are always haters here. The only people that hate me are people that have never fished with me or been to one of my free kids fishing events. This is my 29th year on TV, my 16th year running my youth foundation and this was not the first yellowtail I ever landed on a Bucktail. I use bucktails all the time and catch calicos, sand bass, halibut, rock fish, ling cod and white sea bass too. thank you guys for all your support.

Nice YT Dan! Been watching your show for years--keep it up!
What's the technique in fishing a squid tipped buck tail?
Cast out, and retrieve at various depths?

One technique is to pin a whole squid on and let it sink in free spool until the perch and smaller bass start to peck at it. Then throw the reel in gear. A larger fish will be attracted to the commotion and charge in for the kill. When the tap tap tap turns to a heavy tug, set the hook.
