A summerlike bite

Image by Boris Zaytsev

Weekly fish report

½ Day - ¾ Day: Rockfish, sculpin and calico bass are the main catch on the ½ day boats. ¾ day trips to the Coronado Islands are still putting up good numbers on the yellows as well as lingcod, rockfish and bonito. Sand Bass, halibut and calicos are starting to show.

1 Day to 2.5 Day: The yellowtail are still a bit slow in the cool water zone south of Ensenada and San Quintin, though the rockfish and lingcod are coming in good numbers and with size. There seems to still be a few bluefin tuna on the Cortez Bank for those heading out that way.

Long-Range - Baja: Strange mix in the La Paz/ East Cape area with warmer water early. Around Cerralvo Island they’re getting the usual species like pargo, cabrilla, bonito, sierra, jack crevalle and smaller amberjack. However, the anglers are also gettinga summer-like bite on rooster fish, school-sized dorado and even yellowfin tuna, a striped marlin and wahoo were hooked.

Freshwater: Lots of good news in the freshwater as several large bass, catfish and trout have been caught from the area lakes. Bass from 14 to 17 pounds, including 2 potential lake records, have been caught this week at both Skinner and Dixon. Poway produced a 33.2-pound blue catfish and Cuyamaca is putting out some big trout, including a new lake record rainbow at 17.5 pounds.

Whale Report: It’s late in the season, but they are still seeing the big grey whales in the calving grounds at Bahia Magdalena and San Ignacio in Baja. They are usually gone by now but they are still seeing a pretty decent number of cows and calves, which indicates an extended season in San Diego as they migrate back to Arctic waters for the summer.

Trout Plants: 04/01/15 Cuyamaca (1200), Poway (1500) 04/08/15 Dixon (1500), Wohlford (1500)

Catfish Plants: 04/03/15 Santee Lakes (1000) Campground lakes 6 & 7 only

Ron Brown and Captain Boli with a potential record barred pargo. It wasn't weighed, however, though the news is that it was delicious.

There is some really good fishing going on in the La Paz area right now, with wahoo, yellowtail, roosterfish, cabrilla and pargo showing well. Also, there are some good grade yellowfin tuna breezing through the area. Here's a report from friend Jonathan Roldan of Tailhunters International.
