Got my first yellow off the yak Friday morning!! By far my biggest too. 38 lbs. hit La Jolla this last Friday at 5am, made bait super quick and started the troll. Decided to bounce a 1oz Hookup Baits on the bottom at around 85 feet just for shits and got slammed by this fella.... on my bass rod! Shimano Calcutta 201 with a medium heavy e6x g loomis rod and 15 pound test flouro.

Way to go!
 
Nice fish! Especially on the hookup bait I'd figure a yellow like that would bend the hook on that type of plastic jig.

I went out Sunday and did the same except the Yellowtail didn't show up for the day but the Sand Bass and Calicos were eager to jump on the 1.5 oz hookup bait I sent down to the bottom!

Daaaayyyuuuum! What a slug! And on the bass rig too?!?! Nicely done Sir :notworthy: Free samples or it didnít happen :D

Way to go! What color hook up bait did you use? Those baits get bit thereís no arguing that.

Great fish, my biggest landed was 37 but certainly not on a bass set up. I love those XL Yellows, I lost one that had to be 45. I know how you will remember the experience of being towed and fighting to bring up that Yellow. CONGRATS!

Way to go, that's a feat for a bass rod. Way to be patient.

NICE FISH!

Now I am Super stoked about the box I just received in the mail. A whole bunch of HookUp Baits in there. Really hoping those YT make it up to Dana Point soon. Maybe I'll just have to come down and try the LJ thing again.

Ok... whatís with the Hook up baits on the yellows?!?!? Thatís the second one Iíve heard... that must have been an awesome fight!!! Small gear...Thatís Sportfishing!!!!!

NICE JOB!!!!!:reel:

Not saying the HOOK UPS aren't good lures, cause I have yet to throw one. However yellow tail friggin smack Tady Jigs all day. At least the HookUps resemble a fish....lol. I'm thinking that if it is flashy and wiggles, that a yellow tail may hit it.

Hook up baits use Owner hooks- they are strong!

Was using the sardine green/silver. I love using the red crab in the bay for sandies and spotties

You actually gota get out to la jolla to have a shot :the_finger:

That video was entertaining! I could feel your excitement coming right through my speakers.

On a side note: In my experience, Sea Lions are drawn to crowds and loud noises as much as seeing fish in distress. Loud noises seem to really get them excited though. I just don't wish for anyone to share their trophy fish with the dogs (their bait either, for that matter).

Congrats again on an epic battle.
