    The weather forecast locally was sensational out of Long Beach for Thursday, and the local Yellowtail finally made an appearance, so I went fishing Thursday 10-11-18, with Lal on his 18’ boat the “Rubber Ducky”. We launched out of Davies in Long Beach at 6:00 am. The skies were mostly clear, the wind was grease calm, and as we exited the harbor, the seas were as flat as a pancake.


    We stopped at Nachos for a generous scoop of excellent 6-7 inch Sardines, and then headed towards the Shoe, water temps were 66.3 degrees, and it was still a clear blue color.


    We arrived at the Green Buoy at 6:45 am. Everything looked fishy, and the marks on the meter were exceptional, yet the fish were reluctant to bite. We began slow trolling Sardines south, and about a ½ mile later Lal gets hammered and it is game on. The aggressive Yellowtail took a lot of line on his 25 pound outfit. Lal worked on the fish for quite a while before reaching deep color, when I grabbed the gaff and quickly stuck our first local Yellowtail of the year.

    We worked further south and about 10 minutes later I am bit, and this Yellowtail put on quite a display of energy. It took several nice runs of 25-30 yards and I had it on the up and down, where it gave up on all the pressure I applied on my 30 pound outfit. Lal stuck him and we were both on the board before 8am.

    We caught and released some Bonito to eight pounds and began to work our way back north. There were Sport Boats and private boaters scattered everywhere. Most of the Sport Boats were on the move all the time. The sonar lit up constantly for us, it just seemed like the fish had lockjaw?


    At high noon we were north of the green buoy, and the area was alive with fish, mostly Bonito and Barracuda. Both Lal and I got bit off on the Barracuda and proceeded to release at least ten, barely legal, but annoying, as you had to keep re tying our hooks.


    Then we both got hammered on the right kind. These were bigger fish, and upon fishing in only 90 feet of water on hard bottom, these bigger Tails already knew the landscape, finding the local rocks to break us off. In a one hour period we lost five, with four finding the rocks and one unbutton.


    We continued to troll and eventually the right kind came to play, we were now some four miles north of the green buoy, yet still on the shoe. Most of the Sport Boats were now anchored up and you could hear the screaming of fresh one in their sterns. Between high noon and 2:30pm, we landed another four Yellowtail in the 12 to 14 pound range, and then called it a day, as all signs of life were gone and most boats had left.


    We reached the dock at 3:40 pm and the wind was now howling, at least 15 up to 20 knots. The forecast was right for the morning, but as per usual they missed big time on the afternoon, at 5 to 7, no way?

    Thanks Lal, it was another fun day on the Ducky and you worked very hard to put us on the fish.


    Hook up! Cory

    No doubt! I hope the fish stick around for a while, although, there were reduced counts yesterday.
