Last year I was very excited to knock off a yellowtail in March on the Mission Belle.  Well, Valentine’s Day was good to me this year.  I rode the Belle again and got 2!  You can read my report in this week’s print edition of Western Outdoor News, including tips on what to bring and how to fish this early bite.

In the meantime, here are a few pics and a bonus video.  In addition to the 2 yellows, I had a nice vermilion rockfish bite my jig, so that’s 2 more added to the Top 10 for the year.

Cook and deckhand, Scott Malone battled a sea lion to get back the remains of this yellowtail.
