The 1/2 days are getting a mix of bass, rockfish, barracuda and a handful or 2 of yellowtail. 3/4 days are concentrating on the tuna and dorado just outside and multi-day trips are venturing further out or down the Baja coast for the larger schools of tuna and yellowtail.

Here are a few of the highlights, as fishing is still fishing and catching is not guaranteed. Just know that all the crews are doing their best to put the anglers on the fish. Even in epic years like the one we are enjoying there are those days when it's a long boat ride with a lot of looking and little catching.
