Bass Pro Shops Associates & Offshore Angler Gear vs. Yellowtail Some Fishing Associates from Bass Pro Shops had the opportunity to test out our Offshore Angler Tightline and Frigate Rods and Reels aboard the, “Gail Force” out of San Pedro. The ¾ day trip destination was Catalina Island in hopes of cashing in on the hot Yellowtail bite. With rough early morning conditions they were able to land some nice Calico Bass. As the clouds broke in the afternoon and sun came out the last spot of the day produced some great Yellowtail action.
Bass Pro Shops Fishing Associate Travis Provencher took top honors with a 20lb Yellowtail. “It was a great opportunity to spend a day on the water with fellow associates and catch some quality Yellowtail” said Travis. “These Yellowtail put up some great fights and taught our associates why you need rugged durable gear out there.” Bass Pro Shops Fishing Associate Andy Sepulveda on his first Saltwater Trip quickly learned about fishing for Yellowtail when he caught his first weighing in at 17lbs. He was fishing an Offshore Angler Frigate 6000 Spinning Combo. “These Yellowtail really test the drag in your reels and even though it took me awhile to get the yellowtail in the combo held its own” said Andy. “I was so tired after the fight, but the experience of the fight I just wanted another so I put on new bait and got my line out there as quick as possible.
