Yep, a little thinner and a lot younger. My largest yellowtail was a 30+pound plus fish I caught on the Malihini out of H&M Sportfishing in San Diego in 1976. It won the jackport and provided the money to buy a new rod and reel for stripers when I returned to the Bay Area. Unfortunately, I was alone on the fishing trip, didn't have a camera with me, and we didn't take selfies in those days. Result is no picture. But, I still have the now "old" rod and reel.
