Here is a quick rundown of our Cedros trip.
Plane issues resulted in a late arrival and limited yellowtail fishing at the salt plant.
Saturday started with making bait at St. Augustine then quality yellowtail fishing to the west of there. The yellows rain from 20-35 lbs landed. Also hooked a couple of monsters that rocked me. Calico fishing in the nearby kelp forest. Big and mean, most of the bites were on big lead head with red tails on the drop. Fish in gear for best results. My biggest was 6 lb 1 oz.
Sunday more of the same but too much current ot set up on the calicos. Hooked a big black sea bass but lost the battle. The yellows were 25-40 Some on live bait and some on jigs, 40-50 lb line was the trick.
Monday morning was jig fishing for yellows 20-30 lbs.
Brought more gear than I needed. See pics for what worked best, plus 4.0 to 6.0 hooks
