Under the sea

The Coronado Islands and area south past Colonet is producing a solid Yellowtail and Lingcod bite for the boaters getting there. The Bluefin are still holding at the Cortez Bank area as well as good numbers of Yellowtail. There is good sign that the phenomenal fishing will continue into 2015, with good numbers of pelagic predators, bait schools and tuna crab just offshore. This is part of the reason that the sand bass aren't migrating into the bays in the numbers normally found this time of year. Their hanging out in the bay is usually due to the lack of bait off the coast in the winter.

The warmer than normal water temps in some of the area lakes may be why the trout aren't turning on as they often do within 3 days of stocking. It is a hit and miss endeavor this season so far with no real rhyme or reason. Limits one day, a ghost of a bite the next.

The Bass seem to moving up well in a pre-spawn mode in many area lakes, with reports of some nice fish caught in shallower water.

February 4 dock totals

The Premier 1/2 Day AM run with 22 Anglers aboard reported 155 Rockfish, 6 Lingcod and 1 Yellowtail boated.

24 Anglers aboard the Daily Double 1/2 Day AM run sacked up 1 Yellowtail, 6 Barred Sand Bass, 24 Rubberlip Seaperch, 2 Kelp Bass and 24 Sculpin.

Out looking for the Hamachi on the La Jolla canyon edge, the New Seaforth 1/2 Day AM run with 44 Anglers aboard found 60 Yellowtail and 1 Sculpin willing to bite. Their 1/2 Day PM run carrying 50 Anglers only produced 10 Yellowtail.
