California Yellowtail —

Thanks for the repost. I don't know if anyone else is having this problem, but there is a problem with the left margin in this article. The first few letters are not visible. Other articles have been fine. I am using Firefox on Windows 10, if it makes any difference.

I now looks fine for me too. I don't know what the problem was.

As Ken noted Crystal Pier looks like the place to try for yellowtail (with the realization that there is a lot of luck involved with being there at the right time). There is one problem with Crystal Pier, the deck extends about a foot out past the rails. How do you land a large fish from this pier? It seems to me that you would have problems with a crab net and the extended deck.

From what I've been told it takes a lot of teamwork and I'm not too sure sometimes someone doesn't climb over the railing to handle the net (which isn't too safe). But almost all those yellowtail have been taken by the pier regulars that have the equipment and the know how.
