Hey gang Capt Randel here with a report form our 1-1/2 day open party trip with 32 anglers to Collonett on Saturday. The weather was flat calm for the entire trip with only a lite rain shower for the ride home and very little swell. We arrived at Collonett around 8.30 am on Saturday morning as we bucked an up hill current all night and had a up hill drift all day with almost no breeze. So the game plan was now reversed as it usually flows down hill on this bank and I had to adjust to the backwards conditions.We metered Yellows on all 3 High spots and even out in in the deep water making for a tough decision as how to set up the boat for drifts and where. We did a few drifts in the shallows and picked away at the Yellows and lings but it looked much better on the meter than we were experiencing. So I did some very long up hill drifts in various areas and got a feel for where to concentrate my efforts and it worked out in the end. We ended up with 106 Quality Yellowtail in the 15 to 25lb range and lost many others UG! and also had 54 nice Ling cod and limits of assorted Reds, Salmon Grouper and so on. In all my years of fishing Collonett I have never metered this amount of Yellowtail and think this bite is going to roll thru the spring of 2015.
