    We spent most of the day circling the north island. Caught a few rockfish and white fish in the morning. Current was seriously lacking for most of the day. We had a few good stops on the yellows . Decent quality biggest going about 25lbs. Almost All of the yellows caught on the yo-yo jigs. only 1 on the surface iron. A few on snipers and other assorted vertical jigs. Good group of guy that worked preety well together. I ended with 3 yellows and a handful of white fish . Missed a couple strong bites on the sink. Stuck one rite as I hit the bottom on the slide got a couple cranks on him and he rocked my ass.
    I could feel his tail thumps while trying to free him from the rocks, but lost him and my JRI 66. All together it was a great trip. I think we got 58 yellows and a good bunch of assorted rockfish and white fish.

    Nice work. I'm probably going to head down tomorrow and give it a shot. Any particular color seem to work better than the others?

    All colors were getting bit but I prefered
    The scramble egg JRI 66. The full size jig got bit the best for sure . We fished most 250 and under all day I would say. Alot of 150' it seemed like. Fish anywhere from the bottom to crashing on chum.

    A couple of these schools bit really well for us today. One drop I got pounded twice within the first 50' or so, couldn't believe that I missed both of those bites. As far as I know we out fished the other 3/4 boats. I would say that had alot to do with our group. Everyone cranked there jigs fast and hard , I think we only had 2 rentals, both of which bought yoyo jigs before we left the dock,I know at least one of them caught yellows.
    It was a bit bumpy today for sure. Wind picked up a bit, the windyty. Com forecast was pretty spot on. 6'ers at around 9 seconds 10-15 mph wind.

    Go tomorrow, drop jigs,crank fast. Pull hard. Good luck guys and gals

    The talent was definitely above average on the boat. It was snotty conditions and with multiples hookups people were pretty good at controlling their fish.

    Yeah I ended up with Mex limits on the trip. I was also using the JRI 66 and it seemed to be working well in the conditions.

    Nice report! It was nice meeting and fishing with you out there. Hope to do it again sometime soon!

    Also, I was amazed at how well everyone worked together on that boat as well. Stand up bunch of guys on the boat, both crew and passengers. Even the rent rods (1st timers) kept it together and caught some nice fish. Incredible day out there.

    Yeah boys! Good times last weekend.

    I ended up with two on the Nomad Gypsy, 200g rainbow, fished yo-yo and jigged, one on the surface iron (JRI-2), and one on the 120g colt sniper on the slow pitch rod. The key was being in the zone when they swam through. I like the streamlined flatfall for getting down more quickly, and I don't think I was hooking up any less than traditional heavy iron. Lost a couple of bruisers to the rocks too!
