Cory Visser, of Long Beach, has been fishing for over 50 years. He has never had a boat of his own but is always there for captains who need a good crew. He is proud that he was once part of a crew that caught a Grand Slam of tuna on a one-day trip.

by Cory VisserThursday 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.
This week's fishing reports were down to almost nothing, I guess everyone was planning a Super Bowl party? The best action for the week was the improvement in Halibut fishing, with a 25 pounder topping the charts. The recent Bonito bite at Catalina is all but history, and no boats are even running to Catalina to find them. The Coronado Islands are all about Rockfishing as the Yellowtail moved on.
Local Bass fishing has been mostly slow with decent bites on the Sculpin for the few boats running.
The best bet to catch a Yellowtail is jumping on a multi-day trip that can reach the area south of San Martin Island, fishing the high spots. It takes a minimum of a 2 day trip to make this long run, preferably 2.5 day and no one scheduled a trip last weekend of this length. Several boats have scheduled longer trips this weekend although the weather looks to be a bit breezy?
The Pacific Voyager managed two Yellowtail on their weekend 1.5 day trip.
The Dominator out of San Diego returned from a 1.5 day trip on Sunday, 02-02-14. They caught lots of big Reds. Some pictures:
The Tribute out of Seaforth Landing in Mission Bay had another excellent 1.5 day trip over the weekend, south of the border. They caught lots of Lingcod, big Reds and limits of Rockfish:

All I can say is wow? As an avid USC fan, I just had to root for Pete Carroll and the Seattle Sea Hawks, congratulations on an incredible dominating win, totally unexpected, not just the win, the final score?
