The morning started off right with steady tuna and yellowtail fishing shortly after daylight. We remained until 10 am when we pulled it and tried to finish off with some more wahoo. We had a few stops for a dozen skin and are now headed home. We have had a great trip with an outstanding group of anglers, excellent weather and delicious food. We will be traveling the rest of today and tomorrow and arrive at the dock on Sunday. You can call the office on Saturday night for our ETA. 619-390-7890 Thanks for checking in.
19 yellowtail 88 red rockcod 35 rockfish 1 halibut. The daily game of hide and seek we play with winter yellowtail is something we are very familiar with on the San Diego. Today we busted them in an area they have used many times in the past. Sunday and Monday have been cancelled due to weather. Tuesday will be our next available trip. 619-224-3383 for reservations.
This season has been full of extreme conditions. Our weather has been either flat grease calm with air temps pushing triple digits or victory at sea borderline dangerous. Our fishing has been either crazy wide open or scary slow. Today’s trip had a little of everything. Strong South wind in the morning followed by calm seas in the afternoon. Empty kelp patties in the morning followed by crazy wide open bonito smash. We never found a wide open dorado kelp but managed to scratch 27 along with 8 yellowfin tuna and a handful of yellowtail and skipjack.
Arrive depart day today. We did the whole routine, I hung out with my baby for an hour and it was time to set sail again. We left on another 5 day with my buddy Archie and his gang and a few other regulars. We did well at the bait receivers. We loaded up on small sardine and left the bay and headed out to do some fishing in the afternoon. We didn't do much. A couple of yellowfin is all we caught. We did see a couple of big schools of 50-80 pound tuna that didn't care we were there at all. No bites. We're eating prime rib and heading down in nice weather. We're going to try for some yellows on the coast in the morning and then head offshore for the afternoon hunting yellowfin.
22 yellowtail 16 barracuda 5 bass. Flyline baits on 25 pound line worked best.
54 yellowtail 10 barracuda 10 calico bass 1 bonito. Beautiful weather and fun surface fishing. 25lb bait rod and a box of hooks is all you need.
