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.
Hoping everyone had a wonderful Holiday Weekend. Although fishing was most likely not on the agenda for many, with visiting family, Holiday shopping, Christmas decorations, some folks made it out in fairly nice weather.
I made some great headway on Christmas Decorations over the weekend, thanks to some excellent help from my son Troy:
Look at all the cute stuffed animals under the tree, hey there's one that came to life, yep that's our Pug, Misty May:
all but disappeared from Catalina
, as neither the Pursuit
, Sport King
was able to find any this week. Say goodbye to the last of the exotics, such as it is, with no Yellowtail or White Seabass in the counts either.
The Pacific Voyager

ran a 1.5 day trip south of the border and returned Sunday, 12-01-13 with 52 Lingcod, and 100 Rockfish and Red Snapper.
The El Dorado
fished the shallow water at San Nicolas Island
on Saturday, 11-30-13 and caught 63 Lingcod
, to go with limits of Rockfish, some big Sheephead and Whitefish.

this week, other than Rockfish?San Quintin
also remains quiet and they were the last opportunity to catch Yellowtail this late in the year on a 1 day trip. There is always an incredible assortment of Lingcod, Reds and Rockfish in both deep and shallow water available.
