La Jolla Solo Skiff Yellowtail 2.28.2020

Launched my Solo Skiff from La Jolla Shores around 630am last Friday February 28th 2020. Searched for bait at the pier and throughout the kelp but was unable to catch any; so I played with some dolphins and whales before throwing on the Nomad trolling lure. 10 minutes later I get slammed by a 30 pound yellowtail in front of the condo. I am so blessed. Thank you all.

Here’s the video: https://youtu.be/AGs92T_aiCc

Yeah Mikey! So glad to see you caught a homeguard. I was all over that area the day before trolling a nice large Rapala greenback mac deep diver and saw good marks on the FF, but never got hit. Congrats man.

Nice fish killer job! Was out there later in the day. Didn’t see any yellows and current was running north.
but did witness a sea lion kill and eat a 5-7’ smoothound shark. Crazy stuff.

How did you land the Solo? just surfed it in? I have a Solo as well but have been hesitant on the beach launch and landing
