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 offshore scene is looking up as Dorado
and Yellowfin Tuna
have shown up with an improving Bluefin Tuna
bite, with Tuna averaging 30 to 40 pounds and an occasional fish to 70 pounds. The Kelp Paddy Yellowtail
fishing has thinned out some, unless you're on a boat running the distance, well over 100 miles, then limits remain the rule. White Seabass
and huge Halibut
continue to be caught at the Channel Islands
or along the coast. San Clemente Island
has hot recently for both White Seabass and Yellowtail to over 40 pounds.
There have been numerous good counts of Yellowtail being caught at Catalina
, primarily on the front side of the Island. Only a few White Seabass are being caught. The Calico Bass fishing is outstanding at the Island, and a good mix of Barracuda is also available for action.
Locally the Barracuda returned for some decent off the ½ day and ¾ day boats, with a number of boats reporting several hundred on any given day. An occasional local Yellowtail is being caught in the Horseshoe Kelp area. The Sand Bass bite has been sporadic of late, with lots more Sand Bass being released less than 14 inches. Recently the San Diego fleet has been seeing great action on Sand Bass averaging 3 to 6 pounds.
The Coronado Islands
have yielded only modest counts of Yellowtail throughout the week. Ensenada
has been relatively quiet as well.
