Sunday's fishing out of San Diego-based landings was again excellent and provided lots of table fare for lovers of the "fairer flesh." Yellowfin tuna continues to dominate the counts and anglers are taking advantage of the opportunity.
Half-day boats are fishing the kelp edges and bumps mostly and getting a few yellowtail mixed in with the barracuda, calico bass, rockfish, sculpin, sand bass and bonito.
3/4 day boats are getting a mix of mostly yellowfin, skipjack, dorado and yellowtail.
Overnight and multi-day trips are getting a few bluefin and spearfish as well as good numbers of yellowfin, skipjack, and dorado with a few yellowtail mixed in.
