    If it helps, my jigs have glow in the dark
    On the eye and one side..
    Weight near 8 oz to fish them close to the bottom

    We saw the fortune at San Martin Saturday, they were about a mile away from us. Didn't see what they were using, but we put 14 yellows on the boat using Ed's Jigs. Pink and white was the hot color..

    Typically the Salas 6X, Blue & White is the best go to, but scrambled egg works well...sometimes

    Yellowtail don't see color
    But they see contrast
    Shiny/glow/ white and another color/ yellow/green gold/blue And on and on
    You get the picture, color is to attract fisherman.
    The right action of the jig is what makes the fish bite.

    What ever you use fish it with confidence

    I was on the Fortune, The Salas 6X in blue and white. Went 4 for 7. I saw them hitting every color & brand though. They bit 40 & 50 lb.

    I was on the Fortune when the yellowtails came up. I used scrambled egg 6x jr and blue and white. But they hitting on just about anything. I recommend 40 to 50lb test line. I was using 30lb but I backed off on my drag a little. So I wouldn't loose so many. I got 5. Lost 2. Not bad for a rock cod trip

    I love them too it takes a little practice to get the jig going, it is mostly one lift, one crank, fast, and after a few fish, slow down to catch the lazy ones. Have fun
