They are a pelagic fish that form large schools in marine inshore areas such as estuaries and bays.  Adult fish are generally found over offshore rocky reefs, while juveniles are generally found in shallow, soft substrate areas.

Spawning is thought to occur in the open ocean.  Yellowtail first mature at 20cm (females) and 22cm (males)

Fishing Angling for Yellowtail or Yakkas:

Yellowtail scad are usually found in large schools. They are usually called yakkas. Sabiki Bait Rigs are a great way to catch yellowtail yakkas. Use a small size hook (Size 12). You don't have to bait the hooks, just keep up a steady stream of burley to get the yakkas on the bite and 'jig' the rig. Just a gentle up & down movement of the jig should be sufficient.

 


Cooking Yellowtail :

Gut and scale the yellowtail.  Toss them in some seasoned flour and pan fry in some butter. They are also quite good as sashimi.
