Hi, I took my 2 sons 17 and 19 to Cedros Outdoor Adventures and just returned Wednesday. The fishing was fantastic on 25-30 lb yellowtail. My son caught a 43 pounder which they said at the dock they thought was the biggest of the season. Fish were caught on live mackerel (bring sabikis) with 4/0 hooks and yo-you jigs. Straight mono was fine as captain said did not need flouro. Last year we used rapalas almost exclusively but this year didn't use them at all. Captain said smaller fish in September and the mackerel are too big for them. The food and accomodations were fantastic. We also caught a 100 lb balck seabass on dropper loop which we released. Out best day my son and I caught 11 huge yellowtail in 1 hour (by 8:02am). We then went up around San Augustine point and caught 50 calico bass on yo-yo. Plastics didn't do it for us - not sure why. Then got the 100 lb black seabass on dropper loop. All by 11 am! It was an excellent trip.
