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 weekend weather provided ample opportunities to get out and go fishing. The weather also remained decent during the week. Locally the Sculpin, Sand Bass and Halibut fishing was very solid. Both private boaters and Sport Fishing Boats had good results. The Long Beach Halibut Tournament is in full swing with plenty of qualifying fish on the leader board.

The Yellowtail bite down in Ensenada continued over the weekend and during the week. The San Quintin Yellowtail bite fizzled as the water rolled. However, the Rockfishing remained outstanding, with some excellent Lingcod fishing. Several good catches were during the week, see reports across the border.

The weather forecast for Saturday is for limits of wind, while Sunday looks to contain better conditions. Always check the latest forecast before leaving the dock.
