Thanks for the report. We've all been wondering what was up with the recent yellowtail counts. Now the bloody 1 pounder on page 2......

Hey Lazyfisherman - let me guess you're the conservationist who keeps short halibut, calico bass, sculpin, and oh yea yellowtail because that was all there was to catch!
Well dipshit, that picture is partially the reason that's all there is to catch. Let them grow up. Damn I hate short sighted peckerwoods who CHOOSE to kill everything they hook.
Agreed some of the responsibility lies with the chicken shit captains who put people on SMALL fish just to fill their bag limits but fishermen should know better. I do, bet you don't!
I know, "I paid good money to go fishing, blah, blah, blah I'm keeping what I catch F it", sound familiar?
And by the way when I get back from my six day and my ten day I'll post some fish porn just for you.

I also think the San Diego fleet's options are limited. The problem is they don't have much of a bottom fishing scene. Up north you see all the boats going out for bottom fishing in December, March, April, etc., but down there in San Diego their season lives and dies by surface action.

Look at what was happening earlier in the year, when the entire San Diego fleet was basically sitting at dock while the boats up north were being sold out. You don't have to wonder why they're reporting limits of rats in this situation.

I totally get it. These little guys are typically so voracious they are hard to avoid at times but killing them just isn't good for our fishery. Catch and release allows you to have the tug on your line we all seek, but with the added bonus of doing the right thing in the end.

Thanks for the post, I was wondering what grade they were catching this weekend. It's nice to see what exactly the fish counts were made of before deciding whether to go or not.

Sorry, but I let the small ones go. I'm just not a peckerwood that likes to tell people how they should live their lives or do with their fish. Sorry if I'm not a dipshit that likes to go brag about how he's going on a 6 day or 10 day trip. OP might not have the funds to do that, so let him enjoy his trip.

Must be hard to breathe from way way up there.

Hey, I don't try to tell people what to do.....and, I might even keep a couple of those if I had nothing else............however, are you aware of the bag limits in Mex?

you are 3 over limits, sir. I don't even care so much about that except that you posted a picture of that on the biggest fishing website in the world, for all to see. Conapesca (the mex govt regulatory agency in charge of fishing) DOES watch this website. It gives us ALL a bad name. We hope you will be more aware of that, in the future. That is all.

They are tasty, glad you got some, and thanks for the report.

Good to see the catching begin so early in the spring. :)
They do boat limits. No need for apology on a photo.

Congrats, man! Glad you guys got into them. I've never had yellowtail collars but those look delicious.

New guys keeping small fish don't ruin the sport, bullying and berating someone publicly (or privately) does.

You are spot on with your comments. The OP went on an early season trip and caught himself a great dinner. He helped support a great boat and the sport we all love.

I'm really getting tired of the holier than thou attitudes on this site. This site Used to be better than that. We each have our own opinions about fish size, it's cool. No need to beat someone down for posting a report for us all to enjoy.
