Gary's WCW sub

Caught 7-25 around 6:30 A.M. on a greenback tied to a reverse dropper loop setup. As soon as I saw Jasmine in the fleet I knew it was going to be a good day. He's like a fish magnet that attract fish to the area. This weighed in at 17.5 lbs. Adi. You were right on and thanks for taking the "on the water" shots.

Good job Gary!

It sure looks lonely in the background. Really makes me want to spend $100 and fish "shoulder to shoulder" on a cattle boat , for a bunch of giant tangles and a couple of tiny fish.

UPGRADE

Matt, I didn't rub T-Man's kayak but talking to him at the launch Monday afternoon worked for me today. I caught my personal best yellowtail this morning at 6:30 that weighed in at 31.5 lbs. and 43 inches. When I came in, a guy looking at the fish asked if I had trouble gaffing it. This time I made a hurried clean gaff shot taking the fish out of reach from a damn seal lion that made his appearance as the fish came to color. This is the first time I've had to deal with a seal on MY yellowtail. At least he only messed with the underside. Thanks goes out to the Pber that put his line in freespool when he found it ensnared mine.

Congrats on the new personal best, Gary!

Are you sure that guy wasn't attacked by a 300 lb White Seabass? Looks like the teeth marks I like to see, but bigger . On a side note, I've never seen a dog attack a Yellowtail in La Jolla with candy in the water.
