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.

Amazing what a good forecast for weather does for the fishing spirit and desire to get out and catch a few. Unlike the prior week, lots of anglers gathered up their gear and went fishing this week. The ocean conditions were ideal for the better part of four days, which ran from Saturday through Tuesday. The only primary complaint I heard was for lack of current, which of course does generally affect fishing, mostly in a negative way? Almost everyone however, did not complain about how beautiful the Southern California coast can be in the winter, while back East they are under siege.

Local water temps which had reached a low of 52 degrees last week, were as high as 58 by Tuesday. Unfortunately this nice increase did not quite wake up the dormant Bass to any large degree. Yet there were some good bites at times, as you will see in some of the reports that follow. There were also a number of successful Halibut adventures accomplished. Of big interest down south of the border, a run of winter Yellowtail exploded for those anglers lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time in Ensenada and San Quintin.

With Mexico being the only option for catching Rockfish, the flat calm seas allowed a bunch of private boaters to make a run out of San Diego to fish the Rockpile, Coronado Islands and other points south of the border.

Meanwhile after reading this report and getting fired up to go wet a line, the weather has once again taken a turn for the worse. Rain started on Thursday, and is slated to continue all the way through Monday. Bah Humbug! I guess that's why we all must be prepared to drop everything and get out and go fishing when the conditions allow it this time of year. Enjoy!

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.

Well hopefully, we all recovered from the deep freeze. Being a native Californian, it felt like I was visiting the Antarctic on a research mission? My good buddy Lal and I decided that with morning temperatures in the 20's we would pass on a Sunday fishing trip for Bass. By The Way, congrats to Lal for shooting a hole in one in his golf tournament on Saturday, wow! Now for this week's report, I'm open for suggestions, as few ventured out, leaving me with little material to write about. At least the forecast for this weekend is for temperatures in the 70's and 80's, hurrah! I'm confident that there will a renewed interest in fishing this weekend and I will certainly be part of that scenario.

OK, so here goes nothing for this week. The Bass went into virtual shock or hibernation, and you probably had to hit them on the head to encourage a bite. The Long Beach Halibut Tournament began on the Native Sun, and a few nice Butts are already on the leader board. If you like Sculpin and Perch fishing, locally, it was all you wanted on some trips. Then the Humboldt Squid produced a frenzy at night, all up and down the coast. I got an invite to fish at night for Squid and politely declined, it is cold enough during the day, let alone in the dark, Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Kudos to those that bundled up and made a go of it for some tasty Calamari. South of the border the itch to catch a few fish tacos was scratched by myself and a few others.

And of course I have provided a few non fishing pictures and quotes for your entertainment, courtesy of my good friends on Facebook.

In Santa Monica the 3/4 day boat Redondo Special had a great day on their Sunday, 01-13-13 trip catching 8 Sand Bass and 53 Sculpin for 12 anglers. The New Del Mar had a decent day of Sculpin fishing on Saturday, 01-12-13, catching 1 Sand Bass, 202 Sculpin and 41 Perch. The ¾ day Spitfire can still find some decent Bass fishing on their trips, as they caught 7 Calico Bass, 22 Sand Bass and 90 Sculpin (limits) on Saturday, 01-12-13.

Out of San Pedro, the ½ day boat San Pedro Special had a decent trip Sunday, 01-13-12 catching 73 Sculpin and 125 Sand Dab. The ¾ day boat Sea Angler continues to spank the Sand Dabs, catching over three thousand on their Sunday, 01-13-12 trip.

I fished Wednesday, 01-16-13 with good friend Bill out of Las Salinas. We overcame some fierce winds to catch limits of Lingcod to 12 pounds and a dozen other assorted Rockfish. Some pictures:



We caught 15 lingcod, 10 of which were over 24 inches, keeping four. We only caught six Bocaccio, the first time in forever, we didn't limit out. We didn't return with a limit of 20 fish, however, we were very close to limits, only because we released so many Lingcod. Considering the late start and crappy conditions, it was a surprising day of decent fishing. At 1:30 pm we called it a day. The winds were now at 25+ knots with gusts over 30, time to bail.

A good weather window on Saturday allowed a lot of dedicated Bass fishermen to get out and catch a few, both private boaters and selected Sport Boats. However, most of the Sport Boats concentrated on catching Sculpin during the day, with a few mixed Bass and Humboldt Squid at night. The big Squid have invaded the coast from San Diego up to Long Beach. Given the sad state of the economy and the strict fishing regulations right now, the Squid are a welcome sight to the local fishing community and will hopefully provide some much needed income to survive the slow winter months.

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.

I'm hoping everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season. As we usher in the New Year, a few changes are in place. The trio of California Bass, Calico, Sand and Spotted Bay Bass, all has a new size limit of 14". In addition, a combined limit of five can only be taken. This is a very significant change from the previous limit of 10 each, with a maximum of 20 total. For anyone who has fished locally for a variety of Bass, you could not help to notice the drop in quantities available to catch, including a reduction in size being caught.

For at least the last three years, perhaps longer, the annual Sand Bass spawn in the Huntington Beach flats area has been less than stellar. For those that fish Catalina and San Clemente Island, you have found the Calico Bass population has also declined significantly, with way too many 12 to 13" fish being the primary source available. A limit of 10 Calico Bass was becoming a rare event, let alone catching very many in the 3 to 5 pound range we use to enjoy?

The Department of Fish and Game has listened to those reports of the decline in the Bass fisheries and took appropriate action. I compliment them for doing this. I am an avid believer in catch and release of all the species of Bass. This reduction in limits and increase in size should certainly improve the local Bass populations over time. We will see, it certainly can't hurt the Bass populations, although it may adversely affect the quantity of anglers the Sport Boats carry during the spring and summer months?

Okay, the last day of fishing for Rockfish, Lingcod, Sheephead and Whitefish has passed on Monday, 12-31-12. The season is closed for these species until March 1st. Despite less than ideal weather conditions over the weekend, a whole lot of anglers got in their last licks before the closure for two month. The fishing was darn good from Saturday thru Monday, with many great reports.

The dilemma now for the Sport Boats is finding enough interest from the fishing community to venture out to catch only Bass, Halibut, Perch, Sand Dabs and Sculpin. The first couple of days of 2013 indicated little interest, as a plethora of boats did not run due to low counts of anglers. A few boats that managed to get out, despite low crowds, did find some decent fishing for Bass and Sculpin.
