I am hearing they are munching on the yo-yo's mostly or large horse dinies / mini macks. If someone can please post pics of thejigs they are hitting on I would appreciate it. Heading out probably to the Nados. Thanks.

For YoYo, I don't think color matters much, it how fast you can crank the jig.
Surface Iron it's how well it swims.

I agree it's all about having a high speed reel and an arm that won't cramp up winding as fast as you can... That being said yellow and green and blue and white were the best yesterday...

Prefer Long Range or skiffs (great if combined!)
I went out last weekend for a limit of yellows, all on the 6x jr in scrambled egg. But really, the fish were pretty wide open so any color you threw would get hammered. I did read off a 976 post that the fish were hot on the scrambled egg (or perhaps everyone was fishing one?). Blue and white is also another staple color. Check out my pic gallery for a pic of one of the jigs.

THe real secret is to crank it at the right speed (just enough to keep it from spinning).

One question I have for yah, please explain the photo you have on your profile. That "catfish" is very interesting.

Scrambled egg and blue and white have seemed to be the hot ticket....full size 6x for the windy days and 6xjr for the not so windy. Simon Bon's right about the surface iron....as long as it's a rump shaker your good to go.

Fished Todos Santos this weekend, 9 fish on the yo yo all on the blue and white Salas 6x, and 2 on the mint tady 45. I agree, color doesnt matter as much... it's all about the crank. What kind of gear are you fishing? Make sure it's the right stuff... You dont want to be "That Guy".

Can never go wrong with Blue and Chrome Tady 45, UFO 5, or Salas 6x. A scrambled egg color in those type of jigs is always good to have in the arsenal as well. Mack patterns are nice to have, but I honestly think it sells the fisherman more than the fish.
