We boarded one of my favorite boats - PAC Queen for our annual 1st of the new year Colinet Trip !

note - caught my first YT in 1978 on this boat (yes I am old)

Familiar faces and Gavin was hopeful the YT would be on the high points. Flat calm and the morning sunset was a good one ! YT made two visits to the boat (once in the morning / once before dark). I hooked up in the late afternoon on 50lb and it was a nice one. Buckled down drag and it was pulling line. Unfortunately it busted the heavy string ! Grabbed my 7x Mint heavy and cast out again and whammo! Dragged in my only YT for the day in short order and I was on books with my 1st 2019 YT. Rockfish was decent and caught my limit on the Jax in-between YT hunt. Flat calm and drizzles made for nice fishing ! Dinner was great and overall a very good trip indeed!

Great report and nice fork. Glad you all had a great trip. Flat ocean a good thing.
OLD? Hell I caught my 1st yellow on Pacific Queen with original owner/legend Eddie McEwen in the early 60's as a teenager.Yep my 1st yellow and seabass too.
Xmas Jigmaster 500, and a 7ft Roddy, wrapped by Leon, now of Calstar fame.
