December 2, 2023 galveston bay Fishing Report
We had another great day today. Stoked. Things didn't start off so great though. Nope. Before 11:00 am things weren't so hot We only had a few fish on board. Things have been different at this place everyday. We just needed to figure it out. And we did. We figured it out. For the next few hours we picked away. One here, two there kind of thing with an occasional flury. Around two though things got busy. For the next few hours we were pulling on 14-25 pound yellows with 5-6 going all the time. I was just sitting up here in the wheel house with crew member Justin and we were reflecting on how much fun it was. We had a good day. Fish hold number 2 is full now.
We're going to hang tight on the anchor tonight and start off here in the morning. We wouldn't mind getting another taste of this before we see what other shananagans(still haven't found the spell check on here) we can get into next. We're thinking we"ll hunt for trophies and make Halibut drifts in the afternoon. Trophies being the 40-50 pound model yellowtails. I'll tell you about it tomorrow.

The weather was pretty rough last night and is still pretty choppy today. It does not look like we will have time to fish today.
Yesterday fishing was so good, we were able to enjoy the fruits of our labors with some freshly filleted yellowtail for today's lunch.
20- 30 lb fresh yellowtail for lunch, doesn't get much better than that!
We will be in San Diego tomorrow bright and early tomorrow morning.
Will report again then,

Ryan Bostian called in at the end of the day to update the San Diego's fishing day, "We had 16 fish real early in the morning. We had another good shot at them in the afternoon, we ended up with 29 Yellowtail on the boat. This style of fishing and this size of fish I would say that we are landing about half of the fish that we hook. We did lose several of them today, but that is just the name of the game when you are fishing this size fish. It seems that some days we are fishing 15 to 20 pounders. And other days we are fishing 20 to 30 pounders. Today was definitely the nicer grade of fish. I'd say the future looks bright at Coronado Islands as long as the water doesn;t do something wierd and get cold and dirty. There seems to be plenty of Yellowtail around. Just about everywhere we see some sign of fish. Some days they bite, some days they do not. Man they are definitely in the area and I expect this spring is only going to get better for us.
If you'd like to join us call 619-224-3383. We fish every single day down at the Coronado Islands. Come on down and see us. Once again today we went out with 30 passengers and came back with 29 Yellowtail. Fly line sardines were the best bet today. Come down with some 25 or 30 lb. and some 2/0 hooks, bring a yoyo rod just in case and you will be good to go."

Capt Mike Pritchard of the Tribute called in on the first day of a 2 day charter, we have over 60 Yellowfin of a really nice grade. We currently have 3 hanging and they are ranging from 25 - 30 pounds, with a couple in the low 40 pound range. Very good fishing and they are even biting the popper, which makes it even more exciting. Hopefully we will have more today and tomorrow, we will check back in later.

Capt Ryan Bostain called in from the San Diego the 3/4 day boat out of Seaforth Sportfishing, he said the last couple days were offshore and the fishing was on the slow side. But the good news is that they are back on the fish today, they just called in and said they have over 100 Yellowfin Tuna on the deck so far. We are fishing in US waters, so if you come down bring your California fishing license with you. We are fishing everyday looking for Bluefin, Yellowfin, Yellowtail and Dorado, the boat leaves everyday at 5:30 am and returns at 5 pm. Bring your flyline, popper and jig gear with you and come on out and have some fun.
