    Got to the launch at 9AM, grabbed 40 pounds of 'optimistic ice', a really nice half scoop of lively dines, and headed to La Jolla. We trolled around with all of the other boats and got a few Bonita but it wasn't what we were looking for, so we headed out away from the pack, South along the kelp. Saw a few boils in front of the boat and 30 seconds later both rods (weighted sardines) went off. Took a while to land the bigger one on an Avet SX but we got both into the boat and got back to the ramp at twelve. Awesome quality of fish, 22 and 28 pounds.

    The 28 pounder got within 15 yards of spooling my little SX. I had to put it up to max drag and thumb the spool lol. The other one kept wrapping up in the kelp.

    Good score, when you say "weighted" were they Carolina rigged? Just started slow trolling this summer.

    They were, but with those twist lock kind of weights about 6' up from the hook. 3/8oz weight trolling 40' off of the kelp at 2 knots, look for birds sitting on the surface and bait rippling on the surface.

    I'm not trying to bash you but 40' off the kelp in south La Jolla could be in the MPA. Do you know the boundaries?

    we tried there today, but couldn't get past the dogs. every single bait was bit in half within seconds of going out.

    We were definitely within boundaries, we were still a mile from the boundary. I have all of the zones mapped out on my GPS.

    Nice, better than we did, couldn't get them to go there in the morning and moved on. Eventually got a couple nice fish in La Jolla of our own but it took all day. Nice score and home to roast in the sun by noon. We got home at 7PM.

    That last yellowtail is a monster @Mcgyver. Did you get a weight on her?

    @queenfish, that's one reason we got away from the other boats, we couldn't keep anything in the water for more than a minute or two. When I dropped back a Rapala, a dog came up and got really close to nailing it, would have made for a bad day lol.

    @bugman, I've thought about tearing it out and making a longer seat but I think I might just throw a kill bag up front lol.

    Me and my dad just got a boat, so we are still getting things together. Not used to processing the big fish yet lol.

    Our fish went 21 and 23 pounds, tough fish in the kelp, 40lbs leader, circle hook and 80lbs spectra made it all possible.

    Wow, looked much bigger for some reason, still awesome fish. I got them on 65lb spectra and a 25lb topshot, not ideal around kelp lol. 40lb would have helped immensely.
