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.
Much improved weather conditions over the weekend and through most of the week, provided many opportunities for some excellent fishing for Reds, Lingcod and other assorted bottom critters. Local Bass fishing, especially on Twilight runs is showing steady improvement, despite water temps that fell to 55 degrees, yikes! Nothing like 90 degree days to help this scenario?
The Thunderbird found some Yellowtail on the chew at San Clemente Island, on their Thursday run with plenty of time to fish, landing 3 to 25 pounds.
The San Diego managed to catch 27 Yellowtail on their Wednesday, 04-09-14 trip to the Coronado Islands. The Malahini contributed 14 Yellowtail on their Tuesday trip.

The weather forecast for Saturday is for breezy conditions offshore, not too bad close to shore, with Sunday looking to be a bit calmer. Always check the latest forecast before leaving the dock.
