Weekly Fish Report

½ Day - ¾ Day: Large bluefin tuna up to and over 60 pounds have been caught within 10 to 20 miles of Point Loma, giving local sportfishing boats a chance to adjust to the new regulation requiring passports for any angler in Mexican waters and within 12 miles of the coast. There are reports of yellowfin moving up the line within 30 miles and in U.S. waters as well. The local yellowtail bite has been picking up a bit, especially off the La Jolla kelp.

1 Day to 2.5 Day: Overnight trips are concentrating their efforts on those tuna schools in U.S. waters and outside of 12 miles from the Mexican coast. Many of the rockfish/lingcod/yellowtail coastal trips into Mexico have been shifted to the offshore banks, though there are still a few running for those anglers with passports.

May 31-June 6 San Diego Dock Totals: Overall, the new passport requirement lowered landing attendance, yellowtail and lingcod counts while the bluefin count more than doubled. 2,550 anglers aboard 113 boats caught 150 sanddab, 16 sand bass, 114 sculpin, 2 sheephead, 524 calico bass, 18 whitefish, 2,843 rockfish, 38 lingcod, 90 bonito, 27 barracuda, 125 mackerel, 330 yellowtail, 29 yellowfin tuna and 320 bluefin tuna.

Fresh water: Due to ongoing drought conditions, Diamond Valley Lake is reporting they will be extending their boat ramp 120 feet in the near future. The existing ramp is now officially closed due to the low lake level. No private boats are allowed, though they are still open for rental boats and shore fishing. Other area lakes with very low levels include Sutherland at 8.3% of capacity, Morena at 3.2%, Barrett at 5.7% and Cuyamaca at 5.9%.

Velella Velellas wash up on shore.

Whale Report: The whale watch operators are reporting lots of big blue whales in the area, including the rare sighting of a calf and cow and one large adult that had signs of entanglement scarring. There are still large pods of common dolphin up to and well over 100 animals. Several ocean sunfish, or mola mola, have been spotted feeding at the surface on By-the-Wind Sailors, a small, jellyfish-like sea creature also known as velella. Subject to wind and tide, these animals have been washing up on area beaches since April.

Trout /Catfish Plants: None scheduled this week
