There Is Still Time
San Diego's International Yellowtail Derby
May 15, 2015
THERE'S STILL TIME -- Will you be fishing the San Diego waters before June 8? San Diego's International Yellowtail Derby is a World Class fishing tournament reminiscent of San Diego's famous Yellowtail Derby of the '50s and '60s. The Derby is for 35 days, but anglers can fish for only one day or all the remaining days through June 7. All participants have a chance to win the big prizes because the biggest fish wins! The Derby is open to both private boaters and individual anglers who will fish aboard the famous San Diego Open Party Fleet. Miss Yellowtail Derby and the chair John Campbell hope to see you there. For more information, http://www.yellowtailderby.com/ or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, there are BIG Mossback Yellowtail still around! A 45# 10 oz YT was landed yesterday about 4 pm off, Not at the Coronados or La Jolla, it was off North Mission Beach.
Miss Yellowtail and I are very excited and expect more exciting fish will be landed soon.

This is the 1st time in the last 7 years to have a new area, Mission Beach, producing winning fish.

Derby Tees will be available at the Shelter Island Ramp Sat, 2 to 5:30 and Sunday Noon to 5:30
Pictures of your catch are requested, we will post them on the leaderboard as well.
We have a "Happy Rainy Day," Especially if we have the same results as last Week with great catches on the weekend.
Tee Shirts will be available, even larger sizes this weekend at the Shelter Island Ramp.
You may see an addition of a YT caught by Charles Wittenberg last weekend, I missed his email with his weigh slip, which I found after he reminded me he has sent it in.
The Yellowtail section continues to fill up. Expect to see more halibut and White Seabass weigh slips.
Recommend you send in your Weekend catch slips, a smaller fish could be a winner on the weekend
