When a ‘normal’ week seems slow, you’ve been spoiled by El Niño fishing.

The daily bag and possession limit for calico bass (also known as kelp bass), barred sand bass, and spotted sand bass is five fish in any combination of species. The minimum size limit is 14"  total length or 10" alternate length.

Dock Totals Feb 4 – Feb 10: 847 anglers aboard 44 boats out of San Diego landings this past week caught 27 bluefin tuna, 20 yellowtail, 91 calico bass, 645 sand bass, 493 rockfish, 3 whitefish, 11 lingcod, 21 bonito, 7 halibut, 1,020 sculpin, 185 sanddab, 43 lizardfish, 3 fineskin triggerfish, 6 sheephead, 2 gray smoothhound shark, 25 white croaker, 5 rubberlip seaperch, and 3 spiny lobster.

Saltwater: In our local waters, it’s all about that bass this past week. Though a scratch of bluefin tuna are still around outside toward San Clemente Island and in Mexican waters to the south as well, and some medium-sized yellowtail are being caught just off the Coronado Islands, most of the boats are targeting the good inshore fishing off the kelp and flats for sculpin, sand bass, halibut, and calico bass. Until rockfish reopens north of the border on the first of March, the only option for reds, lings, whitefish, sheephead and lingcod is to go south of the border.

I wonder why I feel, at times as I am totaling up the counts, that it seems oddly ‘slow’ on an occasionally ‘normal’ week like this week past, and the only thing I can come up with is that I am apparently spoiled by the fantastic fishing that has visited our area over the past few years.
