How do they compare to yellow eye as table fare? Looks a bit warmer there. It was -14º at the house yesterday morning. :beer:

Pete,
After eating the YE from your waters, I'd say that they are comparable in taste and texture, just smaller

It's going to drop to 40 deg. tonight
The coldest night of the year ...brrrrr :mrgreen:

Thta was a nice video...video questions, What camera? What did you edit with?

Thiose were nic e fish....Fishing questions, What was the bait it looked like plastic? How many hooks and size? How deep and what weight sinker? Rod and reel and line and leader?

It was fun watching, even caught the BLEEP! FUN! THX for posting. PJ

Saw it.....(as I am a subscriber to Scott's YouTube Channel)

and when I finally saw that HIGHER speed Shimano Curado (?) come out. I said "now we're talking."

Ya;ll need the terminators reel. The Shimano Tranx. Seemed deep, and high speeders would seem to work better that ole Penns (?)

That Tranx, is worth it. And the prices are a bit lower now, on Ebay.

Those are them sweet eaters aren't they? What kind of fish were they again?

Thanks pjay!

That was a nice video...video questions, What camera? GoPro Hero(2 gens. back) What did you edit with? i-movie '11 on a Mac

Those were nic e fish....Fishing questions, What was the bait it looked like plastic? We were using live squid hooked onto 3/0 or 4/0 circle hooks. You do see single tail plastic grubs threaded on to the hooks. We also use circles with bucktail tied onto them.

How deep? around 34 fat.

Rod and reel and line and leader and what weight sinker? Calstar 670 or 700m and Penn Jigmasters w/power handles on the last hole, spooled with 65 or 80lb. braid, 2 hook rigs with 12 and 16oz. lead.

I'll add a picture of the rig this weekend when I can shoot it in the daylight
Thanks!


Some of the shrimp flies, plastic teasers and bare hooks we use
The bucktail flies are tied on Mustad ez baiter circle hooks 10/0
The bare hooks are Eagle Claw 197 circle hooks in 3/0 and 4/0. They come in "seaguard" and "black chrome" finishes
I mostly use the Eagle Claws because they are thinner wire and I believe that they penetrate more easily
The plastic grubs are threaded onto the hook for extra appeal.
We usually use whole squid to keep from hooking the smaller fish.
Sometimes stripped out fresh mackerel does the trick

Image

We use two hook rigs.
The main line is 60lb. mono and the leader drops are 25-30lb. mono. Adjust the length of the drops so they will not hook each other
The two leaders are approx. 24" apart
I tie a barrel swivel to each end and another short piece of 30lb. to the weight with a doubled up surgeons loop (snap swivel also works)
I use an overhand knot for the bead stops, while my buddies use crimps for stops
I can't say that I've had any issues with the overhand knots with line breakage. I retie the rigs every other trip though

Image


Here's a little trick that I do with the weight leader. I tie an overhand knot in the 30lb. to create a weak spot so I would only lose the weight instead of the whole rig should the weight get snagged in the rocks

Image


These are the reels that I use, a Penn 505 Jigmaster that has 4-1 gears out of a Penn 500 and a Diawa Sealine 50H 4.2-1 gear ratio.
The handles are on the last hole for more leverage while cranking
We use 50, 65 or 80lb braid

Image


This is my Calstar 700M with 16ozs to give an idea on the bend
We use rods with some tip action (not too stiff) but enough backbone to handle that kind of weight

Image


Hope this helps to give you some idea as to what we do :beer:

Jetty, I prefer a slower gear ratio and a longer handled reel for this type of fishing
If you bring them up too fast, they can spin off the hook because the spin around the main line while retreiving

Tranx... Ooooooooo

Vermillion Rockfish, more commonly called Red Snapper or Reds in So Cal
Considered some of the best eating fish around here

Don't forget Rojo (Spanish for red). I like when you guys are saying Ooooooooooooooohhhhhh Rojo :thumbsup:

Was that on the S------rt Banks or up the coast???? I like the Reds steamed with Baby Bokchoi ....... Drizzled with sizzling Sesame Seed Oil and Soy Sauce........fresh grated Ginger.

Nice haul on some good eating fish :thumbsup: Merry Christmas my friend.
