Fish Report North

Coronado Islands

There is very little traffic at Coronado Island recently as the kelp line along the border to Ensenada -- offshore and inshore -- continues to be more productive. Watch for diving birds feeding on calico and white seabass along that kelp line.

After the unsettled weather, inshore fishing resumed at a good pace. Breezing mackerel schools make it easy to fill the bait tank. Mackerel or Tady Lures are producing quality yellowtail and some log barracuda.

Well within range, the tuna pens are twenty miles offshore where the local fleet reports limits of dorado and yellowtail, plus a few yellowfin tuna. One boat also released two striped marlin -- an encouraging beginning for August.

Rumors of yellowfin, dorado and even a few wahoo farther offshore tantalize locals. With the inshore action on fire for yellowtail and tanker-sized white seabass, visiting anglers are opting for the closer, sure-thing bite and are not interested in chasing the unconfirmed, offshore rumors ricocheting through the local watering holes.

The fourth and final stop of the sportfishing State Championship, “PESCA LA BAJA” 2015 edition series, is San Quintín, B.C., at Old Mill (Molino Viejo) on August 21 and 22 before the Grand Finale in Ensenada, B.C. on September 18 and 19.

Bahia Los Angeles

The third event of the  sport fishing State Championship, “PESCA LA BAJA” 2015 edition series, had 130 anglers from throughout the Baja Peninsula, along with some anglers from California, enjoying the excellent yellowtail action, confirming the positive reports from the area. Fabiola Hernandez, fishing with Joel’s Sportfishing & Ecotours captured the dandy on a non-tournament day.

 

Cedros Island

Farther down at Cedros, magnificent weather in the high 70s and low 80s … sunny, with calm and cool breezes… greeted anglers, including those participating in a local tournament, producing trophy-sized calico bass and yellowtail.
