Water was clear and between 72/74. Fished outside kelp lines at YT Kelp, Pattersons, Barn. Current was downhill most of the day. I chummed with frozen chum in a bucket and some chunked mac. Dont have a bait tank so only threw artificial. Surface iron won 3 (2 snot logs, 1 checkerboard), swim bait got the rest.

The right kind takes a look.

Nice, I see YT in the dana wharf 1/2 day counts sometimes but neat to actually see them in our local kelp on video. Now if we could just get them to bite...

Very cool vids,it’s interesting to see them swim up quickly and then turn off and away so fast,i wonder what turns them off after coming that close? Thanks

Maybe a video camera?
LOL.. Except I fished most of the day without the cam but with the same jig. Short bites, no real takers...
If you were fishing fin bait (like the guys to my left) it was wide open.

Is it kind of like if you are fishing for trout with nightcrawlers vs a kastmaster or roostertail? Why do they always like those crawlers way more? :D

Amazing how many fish around. Life. Now I have a better idea of what trolling is from fish's perspective.

Thank you

I wonder if some scent added to the lure would have gotten them to hit when they were behind it.
