    Beautiful fish, that why I like to fish Alijos. First bait could be a 10 lber, next can be a 75...

    Got to love those moss backs that take four hands to hold for the horizontal money shot!... look how far apart Gordon Lackey and crew member Scott are standing while holding that fish of a lifetime. Any info on how it was caught?... my guess is a dropper loop as someone said it was hooked at night fishing at the Rocks.

    Congrats to the Vag and the angler that hooked and landed that beauty!

    Gordon actually caught it one night. Gaffed it himself, had some help with another gaff and lifted the pig in the boat!

    Amazing what you can catch at night in certain LR destinations (or locally for that matter)... less anglers fishing, easier to get that hot bait out of the bait well or bait tank, less sunlight from above so you can get away with using heavier terminal... and the big ones are on the prowl looking for any easy meal... the small ones are generally hiding in structure so they don't get eaten by the big ones or by the toothy neighbors that are also on the prowl at night. Seems like sharks don't like going after large yellows as much as they do larger YFT... wonder why that is?... perhaps the heartbeat and tail beat of a tuna under duress is more intense and is a more recognized signal to sharks?... I know large Mako sharks will eat yellows and of course you have those cute but pesty pinnipeds as well (have to be a large seal to attack and eat an 80lb yellow though).

    Tight lines and blue skies!
