    Am up north for a lil work, and a buddy got me out this last week before the wind blew. Water was pretty blue, 61-62 degrees and fishey. We got to the spot around 8:00 and left at 1, with 8 fish in the bags. 7 yellows and a seabass. yellows went from 15-25+, and the seabass weighed 30 lbs. It was taken from a school of 10-12 fish just outside the kelpline. The yellows were coming in pretty nice schools, although my biggest was a single. They are just PLUGGED with the red crab, and pretty lazy going through. The only reason we left at 1 was that Mr. White Shark decided to come take a peak at what was going on. Was a real thrill for my buddy who got a real close look at her! Just thought I would pas it down as I am heading back to Mex. on wednesday. Be back in June though and can't wait to get on some more of that yellow action!!
    I must say the early season fish are my favorite as they are nice and oiley from the colder water. Could barely grip the knife while cleaning em! IMG_5075_1.jpg mayyellows.jpg yellowmarble.jpg

    Nice shooting, but the taxman is a bit much for me. Glad you got a look and got out of there. Thanks for the report.
