Judging by all the happy faces it definitely beats blanking on yellowtail :D :D :D
We have caught a total of 5 Dorado on Black and Blue for the year, and not one yellowtail.
I am now convinced someone at a certain tackle shop sold Jerome and I a bunch of yt lures that dont work :x :x :x

Cooked to perfection!! Very few things beat fresh seared yellowfin steaks!

I also like to do a whole yellowfin loin on the braai, basically sear the outside then vlek it through the middle on the braai and sear the raw edge, then eat right off the grill!!
