Thursday Recap Report-Weekend Possibilities:
A Summary of local fishing from Santa Monica to Oceanside, including Catalina and San Clemente Islands, with fishing trips out of San Diego down to Baja, Mexico.
Wow, what can I say: Four days of rain, followed by a couple of days of fog and wind, no bueno for fishing! Yes, there were a few who ventured out, mostly ½ day and ¾ day boats fishing locally. A private boater or two or more ventured out in the weather to drift for Halibut or hoop for Bugs. I don't do Hoop reports, that's not fishing to me? On the positive side, the weather does look good for this weekend and into the middle of next week.
There have been a few decent catches of Halibut lately, some big Lingcod, and the "Magician"
private boater Matt, found some White Seabass on the chew to go with some good Reds and Lingcod fishing. It was only last week, when he woke everyone up, by catching big Home Guard Yellowtail. Some pictures of the White Seabass and Rockfish:
This week, Sergio says:
