California Yellowtail, also known as Seriola dorsalis, is a popular game fish found in the Pacific waters off the coasts of California and Mexico, particularly around the Channel Islands and along the Southern California and Mexican coastline. They are particularly abundant at Isla de Cedros. These fish can grow up to 80 pounds, with the average catch weighing around 18-20 pounds. They are known for their bright yellow tail, which distinguishes them from other fish species. Yellowtail are powerful swimmers and put up a strong fight when caught, making them a sought-after game fish among anglers. They are commonly caught using live bait, such as sardines or squid, as well as artificial lures and jigs.
A California angler who landed a 36-pound, 10-ounce yellowtail in late July has been granted a women's line-class world record.Read more
