I don’t know if they’re what you’re referring to but I saw Dan Brink get a yellow every cast on an imitation squid jig at Alijos.

no, but they work great for guys from jersey that fish for sheephead
If you're looking for a great yellowtail yoyo jig, the Jri 6 is hard to beat! Mint/pearl is my favorite. Blue/white and scrambled egg pattern works extremely well also. Most of those ling cod jigs that I've seen would be unbearable to grind fast enough to get bit. Salas 6x and 6xjr are proven killers too!

I caught 2 yesterday on a Savage gear plastic squid lookalike thingamajig. Was seriously tired of catching fish on surface iron so was trying new stuff. They just wanted to die, so I can’t say the lure worked any better than anything else.

Anything will work when it's wide open.

For me, I'll stick to the tried and true bait/iron everytime.
Years ago I caught one on a banjo minnow my girlfriend gave me! It was absolutely wide open, so they will even eat a piece of carnival trash when there hungry.

Yes they work for Yellowtail but really I've only had them work a little farther north, up around SC or CI. I've tried them at Coronados on a good Yoyo bite and nothing. But caught a bluefin on one a month ago.

Uhhh. Riding with you. Well. Ok. I guess. I have it here in my logbook that on 9-23-17 on a Saturday afternoon you picked up me, Bart, and Mark. We were headed out to eat supper. We no more than left the Ramada when some dude cut us off. Bart was riding shotgun. He rolls down the window and shouts "you "$#$%*&%$ mother fucker". You hammered the gas and we went on. I'm already starting to get the shakes.
Menudo sounds good my friend. I do love it. I hope they put a pig foot in theirs. Good friends always. Tex.

Dam this long range fishing. It's like drugs. After I retire, hopefully, I plan on doing 2 - 10 day trips maybe back to back, then a 16 day trip. 10 days a year is not enough. I made best friends for life on my first trip back in 2014.
Yes. Danny, Bart, Lou, Ric, Stan, John, Ed, Mike, Herman, Frank, (Gerry and Mike the 2 guys that brought a keg of Modelo on the trip)...I'm ready to see my buds.
Tex.
