Tue/Fri Fish Report and Fish ID

So I went out tue and got some candy to drop down in about 120ft off the kelp line and ended up getting a bit by something off my flyline squid. I felt it herk and jerk but it seemed to come quietly to the yak. Reeled her in and it was a nice size Yellow. I almost got my gaf in him after a 2 min lull to the surface, no dice. This sleeping beauty saw my gaf and zip zangled all the way to Mexico. I did end up bringing him in 20min later. 27 lbs, sleeper fish. Great day.

Friday was a little different. Bait everywhere and I mean everywhere, birds were having a field day. I go two massive barracuda and a 5ft blue shark which was circling my kayak for about an hour before he decided to eat my favorite glow in the dark jig. Didn't get pics of those guys, but am curious as to what this fat black guy is. Got him off the bottom, I think he is some sort of Perch, what do you guys think?

Oh, ok Blue Perch. That makes more sense seeing that Blacksmiths eat zooplankton and this one ate a whole squid and my jig. Are they edible?

Nice Job Chuck

Chuck, Nice fish, That is the biggest blue perch I have ever seen and the Yellowtail is not too bad either. I hope to see you and your lovely lady on the 31st at Hubbs BBQ and silent auction. Captian's meeting on the 29th, www.hswri.org

Take Care, Kurtfish

Very nice yellowtail, indeed, and one of the biggest Blue Perch I've ever seen caught. They sometimes go by Catalina Blue Perch, but you can catch them in other places, too. I don't particularly like them to eat, but prepared right they are probably decent tablefare. Great fighters on light tackle, though.

Nice YT!

Saw you out there on Friday, there weren't many of us out there once the bite turned off - How do you know that? The place was packed, then an empty parking lot.
