    Fished the 26th on the New Lo An. Straight down to Colonet to the high spots on a YT hunt.
    The YT were all decent size 15-25 lbs. All were caught on either the Yo Yo or dropper loop no flylining. Standard technique ,,,,Irons straight down to the bottom and speed crank 3/4 of the way up then back down. Repeat until your cranking hand falls off. No particular color everything was getting bit. And dropper loop using the sardines for bait. Strip squid for the reds and the smaller sardines worked well for the rockies. Just make sure you bring 8-16 oz lead. Captain Adam was drifting 150 to 370 foot depths and the current was ripping so bring the heavy stuff and plenty of it as the rocks were working overtime. Would estimate 50-50 between the irons and dropper loop. If fishing the iron would recommend line that changes color every 30 meters. Very helpful to keep from getting hung up in the rocks. And no mater what technique you like be sure to use very heavy drags. This was strongly emphasized by Capt. Adam. YT are almost unstoppable on that first run so you need to really apply the muscle to keep them away from the rocks. Captain also recommended a minimum of 50lb test. They have a filler spool on the boat in case you just brought 20lb. :) If you have fresh line and good knots a step down would suffice. I was using 40 and had no problems with the drag set around 18lbs. . There are plenty of YT in the area so if inclined now is a good time to put that itchy trigger finger to work.

    Recommend the New Lo An great Captn. Clean boat, on the ball crew and the food was yummy.

    Hope the above info helps.

    Great report. I was hoping to make a private boat trip down this week but the Wx isn't gonna allow that.

    Surprising you caught Tails on the dropper loop, the anglers on our boat fishing bait only caught rockfish and with the rapid drift often donated their sinkers to the rocks. You are absolutely right on for arms falling off, mine cramped up numerous times. Fish hard, catch fish. Congrats.

    Depends on the depth. I've caught yellows on the bottom as far down as 150 feet, but no further.

    Some were caught on the bottom and some at 5 or so cranks off the bottom.
