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 decent weather on Saturday, 03-24-12 allowed a number of anglers to get in some fishing prior to the storm on Sunday and high winds on Monday.
The reports from the ¾ and ½ day Sport Boats locally contained many successful stories, although Rockfishing is still the name of the game right now. The recent storms have maintained the cold dirty water along the coast, which has put a damper on the Bass fishing.
