Full Day on the SD (10JUL2019)
« on: July 11, 2019, 12:56:58 PM »
Called in sick after seeing the yellows were on the verge of going off at the 'nados. Joined 44 other hopeful anglers looking for a big pay day. I'm glad I went!! Large schools of roving yellows were on the prowl and hungry. The bait guys did really well, but the casualties were on the high end for them. I and about a dozen others stayed mid-ship or on the bow armed with long rods and surface plugs. I went 5 for 8 and some spunky 10-12lb yellowtail. Others did really getting double Mexican limits. I had a blast! The barracuda were also out in force, sometimes overtaking the yellows. We actually had to drive away from them 2X. I kept 2 for grinner bait and even scored some HEFTY macks for the Fall grinner season. 

The infamous Pacifica


Just a portion of our haul


Not much time for picture taking. Our count total was 156 YT, 17 Barracuda, and a lone calico. I know if we kept all the legal 'cudas that were caught, we'd have well over 100 of them. I released about 25 myself. I'm feeling much better now...
