While fish might appear on the surface, the key to success sounds counter-intuitive—fish deep. As the boat slides under the birds, drop a heavy metal jig such as a Salas 6X Jr. or Tady 9. Let the jig sink about 100 feet, then put the reel in gear and retrieve the lure vertically as fast as you can reel. Once a yellow grabs the lure – usually within the first 10 to 15 cranks – resist the temptation to set the hook. Instead, just grind in to the fish until he starts pulling line off the reel, then settle in for a brutal fight.
