Summer yellowtail fishing is known for huge quantities of yellowtail and overnight, Â¾ day, and even Â½ day trips can target these game fish. Unlike in the spring, yellowtail during the summer months usually June, July and August can be found in a number of different areas from floating kelp paddies any place in the ocean, to local islands, to coastal areas and reefs. Most of the summer yellowtail are caught with either live bait or artificial jigs. The same techniques for using both the live bait and iron jigs in the spring apply. Lighter line for coastal and kelp paddy fish usually means more bites and a decision needs to be made between more bites and getting more fish to the boat in terms of line selection.
The yellowtail is considered to be the most valuable of the three yellowtail fish. The yellowtail is oilier in texture than the other two. It’s also the most expensive and valuable out of the three. It has a fairly deep flavor to it along with a fairly light red skin. The oils have a bold, sweet aftertaste to them that’s very nice. Yellowtail is best caught during the winter, which is when its texture is a lot oilier. However, you have to be careful eating yellowtail caught in season because the high amount of oils make it difficult to tell how much soy sauce you should add to it. The oils repel the soy sauce, so it’s both difficult to get a lot of soy sauce on it and also very easy to overdo the condiment. You can also use wasabi with buri and ponzu with Hamachi.
