Well there ya go. That's what it took. The Yellowtail were waiting for lighter loads, so they played finicky until anglers became disheartened. Then wham! There they are eating the dropper loop and yoyo iron on the half-day boats again.

After hauling up to and over 50 anxious Hamachi seekers per trip to little or no avail this past week, the New Seaforth 1/2 Day AM run

Friday with only 10 Anglers aboard found 'em, sacking up 1 Halibut and 22 Yellowtail

And they did a little better for their 1/2 Day PM run, carrying 7 Anglers out to catch 25 Yellowtail

13 Anglers aboard the Vendetta 3/4 Day run to the Coronados slayed them, returning to the dock with 10 Ocean Whitefish, 8 Sheephead, 1 Sculpin, 5 Lingcod, 30 Rockfish and their limit of 65 Yellowtail

The Invicta 3/4 Day run with 17 Anglers aboard reported 80 Rockfish and 6 Yellowtail

32 Anglers aboard the Premier 1/2 Day AM run put 290 Rockfish, 5 Sculpin and 1 Lingcod in the gunnysacks

The Tribute is pushing their 1.5 Day Sunday departure to the Cortez Bank for Bluefin Tuna back one day so the football fans can enjoy the game. They realized it might not be a good thing having fun-fuzzed fishermen rushing to make the boat just after the big game. Wise move, guys! Now that's a thoughtful crew! The Bluefin can wait a day.

I always love it when I get "whammed," like catching my High Sierra trout limit in 1/2 hour. It takes a good day fishing in the Sierras, and makes it a GREAT day!
