30 Pound Club




The "Clubs" pertain to yellowtail, halibut and white seabass. I will start a thread for 40, 50, 60 and this 30 pound Club. If you have been fortunate enough to reach this level, post em up! No certified scale necessary, post the photos, tell the story if you like. Inspire the rest of us.

I caught this 35 Lber last spring on 20 # mono with no leader. It ate a frozen squid pinned to an iron sitting just off the bottom 20 minutes after getting out. It ran for the kelp and veered away at the last minute, all while my reel was spinning on the rod. Thats the last time I forgot to tighten the reel clamp. Thanks to Wade for the photo!

A Great June for me

The picture doesn't seem to do it justice, but it did come in at a nice 32lbs. June 2011






Also in June 2011. 39lbs.

35#, 33#, 32# Yellowtails

First two shots. 35# caught 7/27/10. My first legit YT and still PB. (The other previous one was only 15# and was foul-hooked). One hell of a fish. She dragged me around for about an hour. She kept me pinned to the 'rail' and wouldn't let me gain any line on her.

Third shot. 33# caught 11/9/11. I thought this one was a mac stealing squid then I thought, "if you're going to take it, take it!", at which point it whipped the rod tip 90° and started stripping off line. This one's flesh was riddled with black flecks but was still tasty.

Fourth shot. 32# caught 11/13/11. November was a good month. This one was pissed off. It taught me what headshaking means.
