Time to tuna up your gear

Weekly Fish Report

½ Day - ¾ Day: The ½ and ¾ day boats are mostly working the schools of tuna following the warm water into San Diego’s near-shore waters with mixed results. There are a lot of private boaters getting into the action and even the kayakers are taking advantage of the opportunity to paddle out and score on a bluefin, dorado or yellowfin without having to get on a mothership trip to the offshore banks or travel to the East Cape of Baja Sur.

1 Day to 2.5 Day: The fish are so far north that the boats are getting more fishing time in without having to travel as far as usual in the summer season. They are finding a greater number of yellowfin tuna off the Baja coast and the offshore banks and an occasional kelp paddy loaded with dorado and yellowtail. Still waiting for the wahoo to show within 2-day range, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they show up by the time this report hits print.

Dock total July 5 – 11: 5,255 anglers aboard 197 boats out of San Diego landings caught and kept 3,450 yellowfin tuna, 294 bluefin tuna, 1 bigeye tuna, 5,501 yellowtail, 27 dorado, 2,755 rockfish, 175 bonito, 37 sheephead, 340 sand bass, 1,868 calico bass, 1,278 barracuda, 265 mackerel, 111 sculpin, 17 halibut, 11 whitefish, 3 white seabass, 21 lingcod and 1 croaker. Notably, among the fish caught and released was 1 striped marlin.

Freshwater: No real change here as Very low levels in most county lakes is creating warmer than normal conditions and heating up the fishing as well. 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.
