I used two setup. One is Penn Clash 6000 and 10'6" Black Hole Cape Cod Surf rod and the other setup is Stella 8000 and 9'6" light inshore popping rods which weighs only 8.5 oz.
The light inshore popping rod was as pure joy as they setup is so light.
I plan to test the rods more before introducing for other fishermen in the US.
The Penn Clash 6000and 10'6" Black Hole Cape Cod Surf Light is a little heavier than the other setup because the 9'6 inshore rod is much lighter than BH Surf Light rod.
But it gives formidable feeling and this setup is for big ones.
The new Penn Clash 600 reel was very impressive. I don't see any problem to fight big yellowtail with the reel. I plan to test the reel for canyon tuna soon.

Yes I notice the same thing, i was there same old place as you were last year, popping for yellow tail.
But very few fish were in this year.
I was there early Nov last year and found a little cold so went a little early this year on mid sep.
Thought warmer water may be better but the result wasn't as expected

We had yellowtail this year as many as last year, but they were smaller.
The islands in Korea are too far from here in NJ. If I go again, I go after I check the weather and fishing report on a short notice.
The next destination in Korea will be Taedo. They say there are lots of big yellowtail.
