Shoulda gone fishing on Thanksgiving

26 anglers scored 56 bluefin and 18 yellowfin

Yellowtail caught on the Grande with yoyo iron

Dock Totals Nov 18 – Nov 24: 2,542 anglers aboard 93 trips out of San Diego landings this past week caught 742 bluefin tuna, 1,069 yellowfin tuna, 56 skipjack tuna, 1,506 yellowtail, 689 bonito, 74 calico bass, 86 sand bass, 9 halibut, 3,545 rockfish, 1,173 whitefish, 8 lingcod, 107 sheephead, 7 bocaccio, 3 triggerfish, 1 mako shark, 15 rock crab, and 89 spiny lobster (337 released).

Saltwater: Thanksgiving week featured fewer trips, more anglers, and more action spread across the fishing grounds. With the full moon phase, those trips able to fish bluefin tuna during the afternoon hours did well on the outer banks from the Cortez down to the 60 Mile Bank, as did the Aztec when they returned as the only boat reporting a count on Thursday while most folks were firing up the ovens for turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. The 26 anglers aboard scored limits of bluefin tuna (56) along with 18 yellowfin tuna on their 1.75 day run.

Last week, the yellowtail looked to be slowing and the water is cooler, but that didn’t stop the feisty jacks from biting closer to the bottom off Rosarito and the Coronado Islands, as the full-day boats the San Diego and the Grande did well; most anglers opted for either the yoyo iron or a sardine on a dropper loop to get their fish from deeper in the water column. Most of these fish are in the 10- to 15-pound range, with a success rate of one to five per rod. Along with the yellowtail, bonito and rockfish have been filling out the counts for those full day runs just south of the border.

Half-day boats have been concentrating on the rockfish bite on high spots just off the coast and out to the Nine Mile Bank; lots of vermillion, reds and whitefish provided most of the action, while sheephead and a few bonito came over the rails for those fishing close to home. The evening lobster trips slowed a bit in numbers, more than likely due to the stronger currents brought on by the full moon tide swings. The keeper to short ratio was one out of every four bugs raised making the grade.

Fish Plants: 11/30, Santee Lakes, trout (1,000), Dixon Lake, trout (2,000)
