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.
The incredible fishing for Tuna and Tails did not skip a beat this week. In fact with Mexico reopening fishing for Bluefin Tuna it just got better, as many boats got into schools of the big Bluefin, with schools averaging 25 to 40 pounds and others averaging 50 to 001 pounds.
Near shore fishing for Tuna between Long Beach and Dana Point did not return in any significant numbers. Some Kelp Paddies have held good quantities of Yellowtail and more Dorado.
Not much change in the San Diego area, where boats are fishing near the border, they have found numerous schools of Yellowfin Tuna and occasionally are running into some very large Bluefin Tuna to 115 pounds just north of the border as well as down south at the Tuna Pens.
The Yellowtail bite at Catalina Island has been just sensational, with plenty of Bonito and some Barracuda being caught.
A few Bonito are being caught in Santa Monica Bay as well as off San Pedro and Long Beach.
This has to be the worst summer in memories for Sand Bass fishing? It just is not happening!
