Red, white, and bluefin

Weekly Fish Report

½ Day - ¾ Day: The fishing has been red-hot, even if the weather hasn’t. There are still bluefin tuna within ½ day range, the bass bite has been steady and yellowtail are testing anglers and gear from the border to Los Angeles and north. An occasional white seabass has been caught in La Jolla, though the main action for them is still around the Channel Islands.

1 Day to 2.5 Day: Most of the overnight boats are still chasing the schools of tuna and finding yellowtail on kelp paddies offshore. The bite is up on top, so fewer boats are looking for the lings and rockfish. Along with the bluefin bite that seems right on the beach sometimes, there is a nice spot of yellowfin tuna moving up the line and within 1 day range.

Fourth of July weekend report: 1,875 anglers aboard 56 sportfishing vessels departing from San Diego landings over the 4th of July weekend (Sat-Sun) caught 1,321 yellowtail, 378 bluefin tuna, 826 yellowfin tuna, 23 dorado, 7 lingcod, 14 bonito, 2 barracuda, 2 halibut, 20 sand bass, 118 calico bass, 1,110 rockfish, 6 sculpin, 14 sheephead, 2 mako sharks and 2 blue sharks that were caught and released.

Fresh water: Very low levels in most county lakes is creating warmer than normal conditions and heating up the fishing as well. Catfish, red-ear sunfish and especially largemouth bass are on the chew and all normal baits are working well. Try jerk baits in the morning hours and plastics in the evenings for the bass. With the concentrated fishing and low levels, low takes and catch and release are usually encouraged to maintain the fisheries.

Whale report: The gray whale migration is through with some stations reporting record numbers of sightings. We are now into the blue whale season in the San Diego area. Other species to watch for include common dolphin, Pacific bottlenose dolphin, Pacific white-sided dolphin, Risso's dolphin, northern right whale dolphin, killer whales, false killer whales, pilot whales, Dall's porpoise, sperm whales, minke whales, humpback whales, blue whales, fin whales, California sea lions and harbor seals.
