Bluefin and yellowtail for Christmas

Wasabi and ginger can add the right color

Eat your bluefin as sashimi.
Eat your bluefin as sashimi.

Dock Totals Dec 10 – Dec 16: 1,128 anglers aboard 60 boats out of San Diego landings this past week caught 893 bluefin tuna, 4 yellowfin tuna, 567 yellowtail, 6 calico bass, 19 sand bass, 3,321 rockfish, 173 lingcod, 12 bonito, 250 whitefish, 230 sheephead, 28 sanddab, 7 bocaccio, 1 mako shark, 1 halibut, 1 sargo, and 13 spiny lobster.

Saltwater: If wanting to change up the traditional holiday meals or just add a sashimi side, folks will have fresh bluefin tuna and yellowtail available for Christmas if they want to go out and catch one or two. Limits of tuna have been common still for the 1.5 day boats while some of the fleet did very good on yellowtail — the catch total of the latter quadrupled over the previous week.

They are two totally different meats, one being a jack and the other a tuna; yellowtail is a firm white meat that can be grilled, steamed, baked and even fried – or eaten uncooked as hamachi (sashimi-style), or in lime juice as ceviche. Bluefin tuna can also be prepared many different ways, but favorites are lightly smoked, seared as is common with yellowfin, or as sashimi. With a little wasabi and ginger on the side with the tuna, or greens and red bell peppers to complement the yellowtail, each can be presented in Christmas-colored dishes.

Top boats of the week:

Dec 10 – The Pacific Queen reported limits of bluefin tuna, with 44 caught, along with 46 yellowtail for the 22 anglers aboard their 1.5 day trip. The Sea Watch had a good ½ day run fishing throughout the water column, with 23 anglers sacking up 30 yellowtail, 47 rockfish and 3 sheephead.

Dec 11 – 30 anglers aboard the Tribute 3.5 day trip loaded up on rockfish with 430 caught, along with 138 lingcod, 46 sheephead, 4 bluefin tuna, 1 yellowtail and 1 bonito. The Oceanside 95 called in with 191 yellowtail and limits of 68 bluefin tuna for the 34 anglers aboard their 1.5 day run.

Dec 12 – The Pacific Queen’s 20 anglers caught limits of bluefin (40) as well as 47 yellowtail on their 1.5 day trip.

Dec 13 – 12 anglers aboard the Relentless 2 day run boated limits with 48 bluefin tuna in the hold.

Dec 14 – The Condor called in limits of 32 bluefin tuna for the 16 anglers aboard their overnight run.

Dec 15 – 20 anglers aboard the New Lo-An overnight run scored a lot of ‘hamachi’, with 163 yellowtail caught along with limits of 40 sashimi-grade bluefin tuna.

Dec 16 – 13 anglers aboard the Aztec got into the action on a 1.5 day trip, with 65 yellowtail caught along with limits of 26 bluefin tuna.

Fish Plants: None scheduled this week.
