First trip to Loreto. First yellowtail. Two days, 24 fish, average weight probably around 20#. Biggest was 30# for my neighbor Aaron. My biggest was 25#. Those are the two pictured. Had probably 3-4 others that were in the 25-30# range. Cookie cutter was 15-20#. Forgot my GoPro and forgot to take many pics. Was kinda busy at times. Were able to pick our days to coincide with the wind forecast and you can see in the video just how rough those days were. Water temp was a surprisingly cool 65 degrees. Fish were on a mix of live mackerel and Tady 4/0 yo-yo jigs. Pretty sure we did much better than the average boat. On the 2nd day, we got 15 but some boats in the very same area only picked up 1 or 2. First impression of a yellowtail is the perfect combo of a big ling and a tuna. The sheer power of a big 'ol ling heading back for the bottom at the speed of a tuna. A lot of endurance too. My 25# fish made 13 legit runs on probably 7# of drag. But you could work them up without them doing the endless tuna death circle. Very quickly one of my new favorite fish to catch. We'll be doing this trip every year for sure. Took a chunk in to one of the restaurants our guide recommended to cook up and dinner for two cost a whopping $13. Sashima, grilled and breaded with sides. North side of Isla Carmen if anyone has been down there before. Outside of the outstanding fishing, the unexpected highlight of the trip was the pod of dolphins playing in the bow wave of the boat. I almost could touch them from the bow.
