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 was once again hindered by the winds, as the Yellowfin Tuna all but disappeared in the counts, while the good counts on the Bluefin Tuna were all over the map, some good scores in one day range, while most of the better counts came on 2+ day trips.. The Yellowtail being caught on kelp paddies still range from 6 to 12 pounds, with more 15 to 25 pound fish being caught. The excitement of Dorado being caught so early in the year faded somewhat, with a few caught here and there, with mostly small fish.

Private boater Beau fished with friends over the weekend out of Mission Bay offshore in US waters and found the Yellowtail and small Dorado on the chew:






Private boater Garrison fished with friends on Wed. 07-25-12 out of Shelter Island, past the 238 and found the Bluefin Tuna on the chew:

The San Clemente Island Yellowtail bite has fizzled with a only a few fish being caught on most trips to the Island. Although, these Yellowtail remain big, and are tackle busters, so bring heavier gear.

The local Sand Bass fishing has been awesome at times, with some Calico Bass mixed in, with a good mix of Barracuda being caught, both in Santa Monica, and out of Long Beach.

The Yellowtail fishing at the Coronado Islands is very consistent, and the savvy private boaters are putting the wood to the big Tails, which are averaging 20 to 30 pounds, so use at least 30 pound line.
Private boater Lal fished with friend Richie on Wed., 07-25-12 at the Coronado's and they managed to catch 5 Yellowtail out of 11 hookups. Seals and getting smoked on the rocks accounted for the casualties.

The Sand Bass fishing has been very good on the Twilight runs, with decent schools of Barracuda mixed in.

Twilight fishing:
The Enterprise fished on Thursday, 07-26-12, and caught 77 Barracuda and 53 Sand Bass. The Nautilus out of fished on Wednesday, 07-25-12, and caught 84 Sand Bass and 6 Barracuda. The Freelance out of Davey's Locker ran a trip last night Thursday, 07-26-12, and they caught 220 Sand Bass.

In Santa Monica Bay
The ¾ day boat Tradition found the Barracuda on a serious chew on Sunday, as they caught 290, plus some other Halibut and Bass during the day and again had a great Twilight run. Pictures courtesy of Jackpot Jimmy:













The 1/2 day boat Redondo caught 212 Barracuda fishing on Sunday, 07-22-12. The ¾ day Spitfire caught 155 Barracuda fishing on Sunday, while the ½ day boat New Del Mar caught 600 Barracuda.

Newport Beach and Dana Point.
Private boater Joe fished with his friend out of Dana Point, Wed.-7-25-12 and found the offshore Kelp Paddies empty despite great looking blue water and 70 degree temps. They moved inshore and caught a few of these:



Long Beach and San Pedro
The Barracuda fishing comes and goes, and there were good scores on both the daytime and Twilight runs for Sand Bass. A number of Sport boats had counts over 200 on the Sand Bass during the week and over last weekend.

Angler Michael fished on the ½ day boat Matt Walsh on Sunday, 07-22-12. They caught a great variety of fish.












The Islands

Catalina/Santa Barbara Island!
Calico Bass fishing at the Island is excellent and a few Bonito and Barracuda have shown up in the counts lately. For example the Sport King on a ¾ day trip caught 1 Halibut, 112 Calico Bass, 3 Barracuda, 2 Whitefish, 5 Rockfish, 180 Perch and 6 Sargo on their Tuesday, 07-24-12 trip to the Island.

The Pursuit out of 22nd St. Landing, ran to the Island on Wednesday, 07-25-12, with 38 anglers catching 89 Calico Bass, 22 Sheephead, 35 Whitefish, 90 Bocaccio (limits), 110 Rockfish, 3 Sculpin, 210 Perch and 15 Red Snapper.

San Clemente Island!
The San Clemente Island Yellowtail bite continues to produce huge Yellowtail to 50 pounds, and many fish are being lost, as these fish are tackle busters, so bring heavier gear. The Calico Bass fishing is heating up and there are some nice schools of Barracuda running around the Island. Also a few White Seabass are being landed daily.
Private boater Daniel caught this Yellowtail at the Island Saturday, 07-21-12, on his friend's boat:

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 shows considerable improvement over the weekend, as the Yellowfin Tuna moved in to share the spotlight with the Bluefin Tuna. Although most of the Yellowtail being caught range from 6 to 12 pounds, a new area of Kelp Paddies holding fish were found that yielded plenty of 15 to 25 pound fish, adding to quality being caught.
Angler Zane was on a 3 day trip on the First String over the weekend and they found the Tuna to be big and plentiful. Some pictures:

Private boater Lal fished on a 3 day trip on the Salt Fever over the weekend and caught yellowtail, Bluefin Tuna and yellowfin Tuna to 42 pounds: Some pictures:





The San Clemente Island Yellowtail bite is consistent with a few fish to double digits on most trips to the Island. These Yellowtail are big, and are tackle busters, so bring heavier gear.
The local Sand Bass fishing has picked up, with some Calico Bass mixed in, as the Barracuda bite slowed way down, both in Santa Monica, and out of Long Beach.
The Mardiosa managed to catch 4 White Seabass, 60 Calico Bass, (limits), 2 Sheephead and 1 Sargo on their trip Saturday, 07-14-12.

The Yellowtail fishing at the Coronado Islands and the Rockpile continues to be good as long as the weather cooperates. I fished on the full day boat The Pride on Wednesday, 07-18-12 and we found the Yellowtail on the chew at the Rockpile, the big Tails are averaging 20 to 30 pounds, so use at least 30 pound line. Some pictures:

They also had a wide open bite on the Sand Bass:


Still good Sand Bass fishing on the Twilight runs, with an occasional school of Barracuda adding to the fun.

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 improved somewhat over the weekend, and during the week as winds subsided, although Saturday still yielded winds from 12 to 20 knots. There were only small counts on the Bluefin Tuna, unless you were on a 3 day trip or longer. Most of the Yellowtail being caught range from 6 to 12 pounds, with an occasional bigger fish to 20 pounds. The area of Kelp Paddies holding fish are from 100 to 120 miles south of the border, with a few Kelp Paddies located between 80 and 100 miles. The Bluefin that are biting are being found at least 130 miles south and closer to 150 miles, although Bluefin have been seen as close as 30 miles from Point Loma, although only a few have been caught?

Angler John was on a 2 day trip on the Polaris Supreme over the weekend and they were fortunate to get on several schools of Bluefin Tuna. The first school yielded seven Tuna in the 30 to 50 pound range, while the second school consisted of larger Tuna from 50 to 76 pounds, with some bigger boys lost to tackle issues. John caught three Bluefin Tuna including this jackpot 76 pounder:



Another angler with a 50 pound Bluefin Tuna:


I went fishing on a 1.5 day on the Aztec, that left Friday night and returned early Sunday morning. At about 7:30 am we stopped on our first Kelp Paddy of the day at around 100 miles, which was loaded with Yellowtail. We landed 55 Yellowtail off this Paddy to 12 pounds.

We spent the rest of the day looking for Bluefin, turning north after we spent some time in the 115 to 120 mile range, with only a few sonar marks found for our efforts. We scratched up limits of Yellowtail throughout the day; with this Jackpot 20 pound Tail being caught by angler Nick:

Angler Dave fished with his wife on the Intrepid on a 3 day trip, which caught 53 Bluefin Tuna to over 70 pounds. His wife placed second in the Jackpot with a 71 pound Bluefin Tuna:


Angler Tim fished on the Islander on a 1.5 day trip on Tuesday, 07-10-12 and caught limits of Yellowtail. Some pictures:



The San Clemente Island Yellowtail bite is consistent with a few fish to double digits on most trips to the Island. These Yellowtail are big, and are tackle busters, so bring heavier gear. The same kind of off and on fishing remains true for Catalina, with very good Calico Bass fishing daily.
Local Sand Bass and Calico Bass fishing picked back up early this week, as did the Barracuda bite, which heated back up both in Santa Monica, and out of Long Beach.

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 was brutal over the weekend, suffering from 20 to 25 knot winds most of the time. On Wednesday, conditions improved, and there were some good counts on the Bluefin Tuna, with a decent mix of better grade Yellowtail. Fortunately some of the Yellowtail are increasing in size from what was mostly 3 to 10 pound fish being caught. Most fish are still being caught from 100 to 120 miles south of the border, down off the beach below Ensenada and near San Martin Island.
The San Clemente Island Yellowtail has been hit and miss since the weather turned. The same remains true for Catalina, just when the Yellowtail began to show up, it was shut down by the conditions.
Sand Bass and Calico Bass fishing has slowed down, as they concentrate on the Long Beach Barracuda bite, which has improved all week.
The White Seabass Island bite comes and goes with some good days mixed in.
The Mardiosa managed to catch 7 White Seabass, 31 Calico Bass, 10 Barracuda and 2 Sheephead on their trip yesterday, Thursday, 07-05-12.
