Hats off to the OP for having a good time with the family! Just a few weeks ago while visiting a third world country I walked up to a fishing boat with at least 200 juvinile sharks and assorted by catch in holding tank. Ugly sight and that was just one boat(panga style)....talk about raping the ocean! Cool to see kids pulling on fish, no matter what size......

Makes more sense to me to not only create the sincere smiles and memories but to take these 3 fish and now show the kids how to preserve their catch, however large, by proper cleaning and chilling. I'd give 3-1 odds that the seals would take those down without even the slightest of concerns.

Each mature female yellowtail (3+ years old, about 5-10 pounds) lays 1-2 million eggs each year. This is a species with extremely high mortality at the larval and juvenile stages. A few extra rats taken by rod and reel aren't going to make the slightest difference.

http://escholarship.org/uc/item/6nq200v0#page-52

The DFG regulations reflect this - it's why you're allowed to keep up to 5 yellowtail and bonito less than 24 inches. Because they have high fecundity and the take of a few undersized individuals won't really impact the fishery. Completely different from, say, sand bass, where you're not allowed to keep any undersized fish at all. Those lay only about 50,000-150,000 eggs, meaning taking a single undersized bass is roughly like taking 10-40 undersized yellowtail.

I'm more bothered by people who keep way more fish than they know what to do with. We always complain about seiners who scoop up so many tuna they crash the price end up selling it for cat food. Fundamentally the problem isn't the method of take, it's taking more fish than you know what to do with.

Why don't you just go to the bait receiver and buy a scoop of sardines and catch them out of your bait tank,, I'm sure their bigger than those little YELLARS, and no size limit. Filet them up and enjoy!!!!
Wow what a tool! A guy takes his family fishing and you comment like that! You're a jackass!

Well, that pretty much sucked the fun and excitement out of an entire family catching their first YT from a PB. See if they ever post another picture or add a report. Congrats on your catch! I see that you have met many of the more passionate posters on BD's website. Hope you come back some day.
