Captain Andrew Viola called in today at 10:33 AM with update from the Pacifica out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay. We returned this morning from a 1.5 day trips. We had good action yesterday on the Bluefin Tuna. We had a total of 45 Bluefin Tuna. We had two Bluefin over 300 pounds (356 and 353). We also had three Bluefin Tuna over 200 pounds. Then we had about 12 nice fish weighing in between 80 and 180 pounds. Late in the day we found a good school of 30 to 40 pound fish. We had about about 25 of this nice fish. It was good action right before the sun went down. Good fishing and good weather.
Next few trips are overnights going for Yellowfin and Dorado. Our next Bluefin trip departs on Monday night.
UPDATE: I just talked to Andrew and the 356 pounder is a boat record.
Covered a lot of water for 6 yellowtail. Saw both bluefin and yellowfin but we’re unable to connect. Getting the lay of the land and putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Back at it tomorrow.
We had a very very good day today. Stoked. We got in the water we were looking for around nine this morning and it wasn't an hour before we found our first school. We plunked away for a couple hours and when things slowed down, we got the call from our buddy Brian on the American Angler who was drifting a mile or so upswell of us and he was on the boomer school so we went over and gave him a hand. About an hour later another boat showed up and we took a break. I sent everyone in for lunch while myself and the crew got the deck under control and fired up another fish hold. After lunch we went on the hunt again and found another deal, and then another but by that time most of the anglers were now spectators. An hour before dark we found another good school and we may have had 5 or 6 people fishing all with a bent rod. That's what we call a very very good day.
We're off to Cedros Island. We'll be there prior to daylight and we hope for some good yellowtail action for the next couple of days.
Spent most of day searching for yellowtail in extremely clean water and very strong current. Our search for gamefish came up empty but our 50 passengers enjoyed some fine shallow water bottom fishing. We ended up with 150 Whitefish, 50 Rockfish, 30 Sculpin, 10 Sheephead, and 10 Bonito. We are scheduled everyday. Call 619-224-3383 for reservations.
Good evening folks. We departed today on the long running Heil 5 day charter with a bunch of familiar faces and a handfull of welcomed new ones. Our first stop was the bait recievers and boy oh boy did we get a good load of bait. Best one of the year thus far. Healthy, slimy and lively. It all starts there. It was a normal departure day of lunch, naps and fishing seminars. With mixed reports from slow to ok in the bluefin zone, we're going to start off looking in the area we finished up looking in yesterday. We'll see what we come up with and take it from there. Wish us luck.
Fishing reports for whitewater lake are updated each week, usually by Thursday morning. The reports are compiled by an outside contractor who receives the information from bait shops, marinas and fishing guides.
