Sportfishing Report - Friday November 22, 2013 by rob
Trip to Coronado Island's 3/4 day Malihini or longer range the better for the Yellowtail and tuna. Whale watching trips are big this time of year for those wishing to get on the water for a few hours of relaxing and whale watching, test sea legs for new anglers and kids or see what Southern California fishing and whale watching boats are all about while having hot food and beverage. For long range sportfishing this is the time to go fishing for "cow" Yellowfin tuna, Ono (Wahoo), record-size Yellowtail and other big gamefish off the pristine Baja, Mexico Coast.
Legend Sportfishing, San DiegoLook for a return of the Legend in 2014 after a complete refurbish/refit now owned by Sea Adventure Sportfishing's Chuck and Deanna Taft. For years Legend was one of San Diego's most popular overnight and longer tuna boat with a regular seasonal following and long history of productive trips down the Baja Coast. Legend Sportfishing will most likely be running trips out of H&M Landing but not scheduling trips until further notice so keep chekcing back here for more info. by rob November 22, 2013
Lobster Hoop Net trips Jig Strike last night caught 7 Lobsters (35 shorts were released,) 41 Rock crabs
Whale Watching Season - The same Southern California Sportfishing Landings that offer deep sea fishing trips offer Whale Watching Trips often on the same boats during their off season. Whale Watching trips are a great way to test sea legs, have a chance to ride on a sportfishing vessel you've been meaning to try all while having a relaxing and fact filled day on the water with family, friends and co-workers. Most vessels are available for private charter for your group as well. by rob October 30, 2013
LOBSTER HOOP NETTING TRIPS Tue-Thurs. $100 Per Person. (Includes everything except a license and report card. Even a steak dinner on the Helena.)
This is a good time to fish off San Diego and Southern California as passenger loads are light, there's still some Yellowtail being caught at the Coronado Island's Captain Bill called to me today from Malihini, and plenty of tasty Rock Cod to fill the freezer or tortilla's for tasty fish tacos So Cal Style. Contact Rob for any boat suggestions or length trip.
Long range boats on 3 to 5 day trips are not only getting blue fin tuna and Yellowtail, now yellowfin tuna are in the mix. One day and 1 1/2 day boats have been fishing anywhere from 45 to 100 miles for good scores. Some days it is hit and miss, some days everyone is on it. Chances are, if you go on a trip now, you the best shot at landing fish is Yellowtail and Blue fin Tuna. The tuna have been 15 to 60 pounds, so bring a variety of tackle from 25 to 60 pound test. Definitely take fluorocarbon and circle hooks if you have them as this has been the hot tackle tips.
FURY ALL DAY TRIPS . They will be running 10/21, 10/24, 10/25, 10/26, 10/27, 10/28. See the schedule and make RESERVATIONS online or call

Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Dorado and Yellowtail San Diego - Sat. September 21, 2013Local and long range fishing is the best all summer 2013 currently. Even 1/2 day sportfishing boats from San Diego are getting in on the Yellowtail and Dorado on local kelp paddies as close as 6 miles offshore. Local private boats, 3/4 day and 1 day boats are finding Bluefin, Yellowfin, Yellowtail and Dorado. Yellowtail have mostly been firecracker's (small school-size grade), but there are some nice tuna and Dorado around. Pulled hooks and broke lines on on fish over 50 lbs is happening a lot so take the appropriate tackle. Long range boats are experiencing fantastic yellowfin and bluefin tuna fishing. Longer trips have started and scoring bigger yellowfin, wahoo and more. by rob mailly 10:39AM
