Big bucks in the black and blue

Catching a Buzz takes homes top honors

Bisbee's: More than $3,515,000 dollars in prize money awarded!
Bisbee's: More than $3,515,000 dollars in prize money awarded!

Inshore: The 1/2 boats have started concentrating more on the up and down fishing for rockfish, whitefish, sheephead and an occasional lingcod or halibut. Calico bass counts doubled in the past week from the previous week. Bonito and barracuda numbers shot up dramatically and are the main surface feeders right now off the kelp edges, though there are a few yellowtail around. Whitefish numbers have also doubled and a few more white seabass are showing up in the gray hours off La Jolla. The hoop-net twilight trips are getting out occasionally and reporting maybe 15 legal lobsters to every 100 raised.

Outside: Swordfish, shortbill spearfish, striped marlin and wahoo are still around within two-day range, but the tuna counts have dropped a ton. 900 fewer anglers overall for the week equaled a drop from 7,000+ yellowfin to just over 1,600, 1,200 fewer skipjack, and the bluefin are still scarce with only 12 caught. Yellowtail and dorado are still being found near kelp paddies and under birds offshore.

Down south: The richest fishing contest in the world, the Bisbee's Black and Blue Tournament wrapped up on Saturday, October 24 in Cabo San Lucas with more than $3,515,000 dollars in prize money and side jackpots at stake.
