Fished the Liberty today with only 20 other anglers in flat calm conditions. Headed to the islands in the morning and didn't see much. Got called down to the rockpile and there were massive hungry schools everywhere. Everything worked, and almost every stop produced. I stuck to the sight fishing the surface iron most of the day which was a friggin blast. Surface seemed to be the ticket as all the hot sticks were throwing mint tadys, but also saw a lot on yoyo and flyline. Ended the day with 6 tails, 2 big bonita and some bottom critters and probably missed just as many more. Most fish were 10-15 lbs. Boat limits by 1PM. One of those days ill never forget...

    It appears like the yellowtail population has really improved over the last several years! What does everyone think?

    Great fishing with you. You were killing them on the surface iron. I ended with 7, 6 yo-yo and 1 surface. Trip to remember for sure

    Good fishing with you as well. Great group on that trip... Lets get out there again soon, i see the Bluefin are already coming up the line :D:D:D
