so i got all caught up with work yesterday and wanted to go fishing
so i was planning on going on the mission belle but a buddy of mine called me and wanted to take his skiff out, so that sounds nice
ended up leaving a little late this morning but still made it to the islands in no time
looked around for a while then started metering some fish
this went on all morning
we hooked a few with the yoyo but they came unbuttoned
but i did manage to see some boils at one stop and through the surface iron and got one
that was the only fish for us but the sport boats looked like they were doing good
so get out there and try

I was the noob with the rental rod on the Mission Belle yesterday (2/14). What an insane day! There were a few guys that landed multiple yellowtail on the surface iron. Most anglers were using the yo-yo iron. I had 2 YT bites, lost 1 to sea lion, lost the other because my rental reel fell apart in my hands! Super fun trip, good people. Will do it again soon.

Wow, it's February and the YT are being caught on the surface iron. Awesome!

I got to stop web fishing and get out and fish.

Congrats!
