A 413-pound yellowfin tuna was caught by angler Kevin Boyle of West Hills about 15 miles off Tres Marias Islands aboard the Constitution during a three-and-half-day trip out of Puerto Vallarta. Several other large fish in the 200- to 300-pound class were caught on the trip. A local commercial longliner reportedly sold a yellowfin tuna well over 500 pounds at the fish market in Puerto Vallarta the same week. It is looking like the 427-pound All-Tackle world record for yellowfin tuna might be beaten this year if the bite continues.

For the long-range boats running out of San Diego, the wahoo bite has been excellent along the lower zone south of Cabo San Lucas with many fish over 60 pounds caught. The yellowfin bite in the same area has been hit and miss with slower full moon fishing. Most of those fish have been in the 100-pound class, give or take.

Dock Totals 2/5 – 2/11: 518 anglers aboard 30 boats out of San Diego landings this past week caught 1 bluefin tuna, 493 yellowtail, 25 calico bass, 134 sand bass, 313 rockfish, 187 sanddab, 35 halfmoon, 3 rubberlip seaperch, 6 whitefish, 31 bonito, 2 lingcod, 1 halibut, 22 mackerel and 237 sculpin.

February 5: The Fortune out of Fisherman’s Landing returned to the dock with 82 yellowtail caught by the 16 anglers aboard a 2.5 day run down the Baja coast. The Liberty, also out of Fisherman’s, returned from their 1.5 day trip to the Colonet area with 103 yellowtail for their 31 anglers aboard. The Pacific Queen also had a great 1.5 day run to the same area with 131 yellowtail for 32 anglers. Old Glory out of H&M caught more of a mixed bag on their 1.5 day run with 41 rockfish, 9 bonito and 51 yellowtail for the 20 anglers aboard. The Eclipse carrying 25 anglers on a 1.5 day run out of Seaforth to Colonet called in with 1 bluefin tuna, 71 yellowtail, 6 whitefish, 9 bonito and 36 rockfish in the hold.
