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.
The incredible fishing for Tuna and Tail
s did not skip a beat this week. In fact with Mexico reopening fishing for Bluefin Tuna
it just got better, as many boats got into schools of the big Bluefin, with schools averaging 25 to 40 pounds and others averaging 50 to 001 pounds.
Near shore fishing for Tuna between Long Beach and Dana Point
did not return in any significant numbers. Some Kelp Paddies have held good quantities of Yellowtail and more Dorado.
Not much change in the San Diego
area, where boats are fishing near the border, they have found numerous schools of Yellowfin Tuna
and occasionally are running into some very large Bluefin Tuna to 115 pounds just north of the border as well as down south at the Tuna Pens.
bite at Catalina Island
has been just sensational, with plenty of Bonito
and some Barracuda
A few Bonito are being caught in Santa Monica Bay
as well as off San Pedro and Long Beach.
This has to be the worst summer in memories for Sand Bass
fishing? It just is not happening!
